One more quote from Bigger Than the Sky...  It's not that it was such a great movie, but it did have a few really nice moments.

"Death is no stranger, is it? Those of us who live in the theatre live with death every day. Our words die as soon as they are spoken. Each moment on the stage lives no longer than a breath. And yet, because our words address that which is immediate, they live, in death, forever, in our hearts, and in the hearts of all who hear them."
 

I have a post I've been wanting to write about my birthday, but I think I may have used up my LJ quota for the week at this rate!  But I'll get around to it soon.  Meanwhile, suffice it to say that it was a lovely birthday, and I am blessed in my friends.

 Man, I should really be asleep by now, but I got caught up in watching a movie called Bigger Than the Sky.  It's about a man in a community theatre production of Cyrano de Bergerac, and mostly it makes me very grateful for Theatre@First, because boy are we a nicer group than they are (although I'll take their space and budget, please!)  But then I got to this one line, said to someone playing a small part, and I had to stop the video to write it down for future reference:

We are all Cyrano, all loving with no hope of true love in return . . . All Roxanne, loving an illusion of love . . . All Christian, loving with words that are not our own . . . All imperfect, parading our imperfections in spite of our fears, with one thought in mind, to play to the end, to risk all and to be left with that which is most dear . . .
