A Compliment

Tim A. wrote to me on Facebook about my blog:

"I love your blogs Mr.Osmond! I am studying to be an actor, and these blogs help me so much when professors aren't as helpful as I feel that I need.".

I reply:

"Poor professors. I was one once myself; and 'some of my best friends are'. They are often too much in their head to be of much practical help. When he/she is unclear, tell your professor: 'Cliff said, "Acting is ultimately an experiential activity, not an intellectual one. All good acting theory, training and advice must spring from that reality." If he/she doesn't throw you out of his/her class, you might be helping him/her clarify his/her attempt to help you."
