Ronald Reagan had it right. Theater, film, and music (both vocal and instrumental) are my life. I am passionate about these interests and I express myself through the arts. As long as there are plenty of movies to watch, music to play, and plays to act out, I will be all set.
Bastian was me growing up. It’s one of the biggest reasons I loved The Neverending Story as a kid. When I talked about how much I loved Tolkien, Shakespeare, Dickens and Poe, adults looked at me like I was insane. I had to constantly defend myself like, “NO. I have hundreds of books at home. I read them, and I become a part of the story, okay. THANKS.” I also relate to Mr. Correander here. Kids these days should be able to appreciate and respect the art that is a real book. Made from old paper and with dog-eared pages. With yellowed pages and someone’s little initial on the inside of the front cover.
SO I’ll stop now. I get all emotional with this story, okay.
