Some of the moments that made me pause:
The coming across the ampitheatre in 300 BC and the author imagining herself on stage and among the people populating the audience ...."A whole imaginary world created just for their edification and pleasure ..." and "I'm here too, an actor in 1979 ... I too, on the other side of the world, am a mouthpiece, a sacred vessel ..." "I spoke this to the 'row upon row of broken grey seats..."'
"What was I meant to do on earth" she asks herself. "How to take the package that was me with all my deficits and plusses, my flaws and my gifts, and use it to become a more valuable human being, while also managing to eat."
In France, Antoine asks, "Are you still finding things to worry about?"
"Was it possible to love your parents too much?" (Its said that a woman is only truly free when her mother is dead.) "We were sisters, Mom and I ..." but the author discovered and discussed the limitations and disadvantages of this kind of relationship.
I liked that the author seemed equally to honestly understand both her gifts and her flaws. She offered an comprehension about audiences - "People had always needed to better understand their own lives by seeing other lives played out before them - the theatre ... brought their own humanity back to them, showed themselves in a clearer light."
I would be interested in a follow-up book about the rest of the author's life.
