Welcome to Under the Lights!
I am an actress, singer, and dancer. However this page is not about me. It's about being a Performing Artist. There are things in the performing arts world that are innovative, brand new, and exciting. There are things that are old hat and everyone should know. We're going to go through it all. Being a Performing Artist is all about experience, emotional connection and hard work. Training, talent, and sometimes even chance. It's about who you know, what you can do, and why you're doing it. I'm not a professional. I want to be someday, and by the grace of God, this is how it'll happen.

#Sufi#Soofie#soofiepmb#IslamIsBeingMisrepresented 😓One of the great challenges for Muslims today is precisely people's "inclination to accept unverified opinion simply because of currency or familiarity," as every day they gave a fusillade of unrelenting images of Islam and Muslims as violent, vengeful, and full of hatred for the West. The media trafficked on stereotypes, and like all stereotypes, there is some truth to these images of Islam and Muslims. But the stereotypes fail abysmally because it does not reflect the perennial teachings of Islam or even the views of the overwhelming majority of Muslims. It also ignores the role that Western imperialism has played in fostering this environment of enmity, whether it be the British Mandate for Palestine, the creation of nation states in a 'divida et impera' colonial policy, or the more recent deadly debacles in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. #PrayForBarcelona and the rest of the World being targeted by the #PredatoryElite 😢
“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek..." #Shakespeare

I never imagined my favorite female empowerment quote from a guy, but I really do like this quote, so recently finished my canvas painting of it 🌸 (insp. by @lexyolivia THE watercolor goddess)
What do you do when you're feeling down? 😓 I like to take a warm bath, or read a good book, rest my eyes, or drink a hot cup of tea or coffee ☕️📖
Tão secreto em si mesmo, tão fechado, tão fugidio e infenso à descoberta quanto o botão mordido pelo verme antes que possa abrir-se para o ar, ou dedicar ao sol sua beleza. #shakespeare#duasfamiliasrivais#teatro

- The tendency toward the bohemian in Danish dress can be (partly) explained by Shakespeare, who in 1603 published Hamlet, a story about a Danish prince and his lady love Ophelia, who, despite coming to a tragic and watery end, became a paradigm of romanticism—and archetypal Danish beauty. In paintings by Pre-Raphaelites John William Waterhouse and John Everett Millais, Ophelia is depicted as a long-haired beauty who wears flowers in her hair and a long flowing dress, both outward expressions of her free-spiritedness and femininity.
