The Actor – A Poem

(Cesar Romero, 1930s)

The Actor

by Dawn Pisturino

Always acting,

Never sure of his true role

Or who he really is

When out of the spotlight.


Happy Spring Solstice Today!

    Maybe there is a bit of acting in all of us from time to time?

    Beautiful the way this highlights the conflict between the actor as a person and the actor in his roles! ❀

  3. Some actors after a very heavy role, can’t shake it off. Joaquin Phoenix said it took him a long time to recover from playing The Joker. I believe it.. Happy Spring to you too, Dawn:)

    Hope you’ve had a lovely first day of spring, Dawn. 🌸 Stunning photo of Cesar Romero. Vintage Hollywood. 🎬 I imagine actors do lose themselves when they immerse themselves in a role.

  6. Great tribute to Sr. Romero!

    Sorry to be a pedant but today was an Equinox, not a Solstice. The Solstices are in June and December.

    A confusing way to spend the day. I reckon one loses track of who one is quicker. Who to be Who to be.

    Happy Vernal Equinox, Dawn. Blessings.
