Today’s prompt is Audience and here's my 5 minutes' worth:
I’m not happy performing to an audience. As mentioned in an earlier post if I have to I will but not through choice. Strange when you consider that as a child I attended a dancing school. I learned ballet, tap and modern. Not only did we perform shows to an audience of proud parents and family members as well as the public, we also entered competitions where the audience also included judges.
I’m not sure how I managed to go out onto a stage, on my own, and perform in that way. But I did. I was never great but I did get quite a few certificates and medals for my efforts. Generally I did manage ok but I can remember one competition where I got halfway through my routine and then just froze. I could not remember the steps and ended up running off the stage in tears. I was given the chance to go on again and I did get through to the end of the routine but I’m sure I was making some of it up as I went along! Fortunately the audience tends to be kind to young children.
These days my audience is the people who read my blog. Some of those are anonymous but I have made some great blogging friends who are here regularly and leave encouraging comments. It’s a great bonus to know that there are people out there who enjoy what I post and come back for more. It is much appreciated.
Whew - going to make it with a couple of minutes to spare today. Been another busy day spent with these 3 and all their Mummies and Daddies. Pumpkin picking and then a meal together.
