Aside from entertaining my young nieces, I have had limited experience with different dialects and still an audition required a specific one. I attended the audition only for the promise of socializing afterward with some friends that were trying out. And so I read and slipped in and out of my own American standard accent into something that sounded like Mary Poppins.
My lack of preparation ended a few weeks back as I increasingly dedicated time to not only audition material but physical fitness and spiritual health. I'm paying careful attention to my pocketbook and calendar in order to keep my priorities as it relates to my well being and the obedience to God.
There is no gap in my life between creativity and the spiritual life and it becomes more and more apparent by the events I fill my calendar with. I admit that I am not gifted with speaking in an impromptu fashion before crowds but I do recognize the talent for the written expressions be it my own or those inspired by a script or playwright. I've recently attended a revival of spiritual renewal wrapped up in a young man with powerful words accompanied by beats and I've supported the youngest child in re-creating the Christmas story.
Creativity comes in all ranges and dialects and fashion of voice, providing encouragement and reviving the soul's purpose, touching a heart and sometimes reclaiming innocence.
