|Answering the questions people have|
asked (or I have asked myself) about
my past, present, or future.
A line from August Wilson's play Fences sticks in my mind: "Get yourself a trade. That way you have something nobody can take away."
So I got a trade: journalism. But the acting bug would come back to bite again in the Tanque Verde Swap Meet commercials (which I've discussed previously), and also in my living history. Being a person of the past allows me to make my own rules on my own terms -- even if it doesn't make money. You can only do so many costume dramas.
