‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Outing Myself As The Shakespeare Geek I Am

That's me. It's ok to laugh. It makes me laugh. I'm wearing what is called a wimple. (Think the Nurse in Romeo & Juliet.) I won't bore you with a wimple definition - you can read up on it yourself if you're so inclined.

Anyway, many of you have asked me about my work -- most recently when I answered your, umm, flurry of questions of late. (I do love sarcasm.)

So, I thought I'd post the link to my website for a few days. I hope I'm not making a grave mistake! I do value our privacy, but I also want to humor the handful of you who might truly be interested in what I do. So.... here it is!

Edit 1/29/09: I've taken down the link due to one nasty comment about my "not caring about my daughter's privacy", but I am happy to provide the link to any of my blogging buddies -- just send me a comment with your email address. I'll send the link and then delete your comment :)

I'll take it down in a few days, but for now feel free to venture forth into Shakespeare land and feel privileged to be in on the (until-now) secret life of FaerieMama.

I can't take credit for the website -- my friend Christine created it --but it does give you a pretty good idea of what I do and how and where I do it. I love the photos. You can go to the alumni page and read about some of my famous and almost-famous students :)

I am a bit paranoid, so I may take this down sooner than later. You can always send me a comment requesting the link later on, once I take it down. If I like you, I might just send it on!


  1. Very cool! Think J could do this? I'd have to see about financially but it would be so cool!

  2. Do you know Shakespeare by the Sea?

    That's what we do here in NL

  3. Oh my gosh! I was right there....in Salem, in Lynn, in Beverly and Magnolia, but of course you were in Florida so it didn't matter. I think your work is incredible! Guess what my son has decided to do...become a famous actor or singer who is a chef at his own home. He's checking out living in Beverly Hills (not!) I am looking into a camp held in our little village that puts on musicals. Hmmm, maybe he can earn enough to pay for his own therapy!

  4. That's pretty neat! They could base a TV series on your life... You should pitch it!

  5. I've been over and read about your "other life" and think that it's just wonderful! I wish we'd had something like this when I was doing Shakespeare, it would've been more likely to keep me awake xXx

  6. I caught the link before you took it down, how COOL!! I bet you are GREAT with the kids you teach :).

    M is so interested in "acting", too. I am considering letting her try out for the next play at our local Performing Arts School. How old do you think children should be before you let them go to auditions?
