Fun fact! While I attended John Marshall High School (Los Angeles), I played the role of Lucky from the Samuel Beckett‘s play Waiting for Godot (Esperando a Godot), and while in París I recited a few lines from the play –as well as a few lines from his short story Suite published in part by Jean-Paul Sartre, both of their tombstones were within ear shot of each other.
Perhaps my favorite part of playing the role of lucky was the monologue, simply a great piece of writing that I would dissect again while attending Humboldt State University.
Today, I appreciate the depth of Beckett’s work so much more; his noble peace prize, his global recognition, and the of course the fact that he has a special place on my book shelf. #Shelfie 😀
