I am, in a way, learning to act.  My acting coach has told me that acting is not acting, and that sounds right.  She’s a good coach.  But in this case acting is definitely acting because it requires one to do unnatural things.  As a rule I try to do unnatural things whenever feasible, and as many things I can’t at any given time, so I suppose it was only a matter of time until I tried screen-acting.  We’ll see how it goes.  So far it’s fun.
