The Moment

La multitud te aclama: ¡Otra! ¡Otra! Y te quedas ahí, absorbiendo todo. Las miradas. El cariño. Los aplausos—hasta aquellos que aplauden solamente por pura borrachera. Eres dueña del momento.

The crowd goes wild: One more! One more! And you just stand there, taking it all in (the moment). The gaze. The affection. The applause—even those applauding only out of drunkenness. You own the moment.


One thought on “The Moment

  1. And, it’s a dangerous drug that drives many off the dark side of the stage when the lights shut down. I wonder how some survive while others crash and burn. And, I don’t mean those who don’t get work or credit crash and burn (alone). Some who seem to be busy or doing okay can crash, too.

    I remember my last “moment” and how I’d like to feel that again…without the stage makeup.
