I have run the gamut from stage crew to actor to stage manager to director. I had the chance today to uphold a Homer High School tradition. Since 1969, HHS has erected a replica version of London's Globe Theatre. It has undergone some changes in the last 43 years, but it remains the jewel in the Homer Shakespearean Society's crown.

It represents much more than our mutual love for Shakespeare; however.
It reminds us that we are part of something much bigger and much longer lasting than ourselves. It creates a sense of community so cherished that people remember both the first and last times that they put it up.

Some of my proudest moments have happened there and I am forever grateful for the chance to share them.
