Nike's Psyche

An outlet for my peaceful ponderings with, perhaps, the occasional rant.

We Should Have Known . . .

. . . that our daughter would want to be an actress when she grew up.

From concerts and plays involving Beanie Babies and other stuffed animals when she was old enough to talk and sing . . .


to small parts in Camden Area Players little theatre productions like The Pied Piper . . .

And roles, since she was five, in our annual family murder mysteries such as the part of Diana Rush in Murder at the Disco . . .

To a leading role as Alice Sycamore in the Camden County High School Theatre Department's production of You Can't Take it With You.

She saw her first musical (Cats) when she was six and The Lion King on Broadway at nine. For her 16th birthday, she is going to see Rent. She breezed through being filmed with us on our Book Tours and later for the Discovery Channel like a pro. Frank and I like to imagine that they'll soon be putting a star on her dressing room door!

    I don't think I've seen that first photo. Maybe she can support you guys in your old age?

    She has put on so many concerts in the living room with songs, dances, costume changes and programs and I have loved every one of them.

    What a beautiful post! It's amazing to see your daughter grow up within 15 seconds here on your page.

    Very cool indeed!
