Happy Birthday American Shakespeare Center!

Words are hard this morning.

Today is the American Shakespeare Center's 25th Birthday!

I'm trying to find the words to express my fondness for this company and my time spent working on the Blackfriars stage.

I met amazing people. I heard beautiful stories told in clever and creative ways. I learned core theatrical values. I studied under respected teachers and actors who taught through example.

And I took a lot of pretty pictures. So, I'm gonna stop using words and just pull up some old photos of my time in Staunton, VA.  Many of these are headshots I took of friends and fellow actors.

I may go a bit overboard here.

Well this is just a mess. In my efforts to find photos from my days in Staunton, I've found too many beautiful photos. Good grief. 

Well, since I've already started, here's one more.
