On Character



“It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
~ J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, 1999

Choice an identity...What a coincidence! Just Daisy, a character of The Rhinoceros (Ionesco), today tells of her choices and what to believe, to hope, in my blog. A fantastic letter -never written by the character- to her lover, already died, after the hurricane of the war and their leaving....love and hopes. Yes, dear friend, our choices are what we are, howewer.
My company tries new road, to walk, experimenting the characters and acting them outside, through an amazing process -what I mean dramatherapy. What a pity...it dosen't help me with my English!
Bye and thanks

Ermanno - That is a very interesting coincidence - or perhaps it is synchronicity. I will have to check out the play.

And your English is fine, by the way - much better than my Italian will ever be!

Another perspective is that even choices do not always remind you of the truth. When external influence blocks unconditional self-acceptance and love, then you may not sense you are more than you are told. YOu are far more than you believe or sense now. Life experience is a transformational teacher for those willing to open to unlimited possibilities.
