04/11/19: I've been listening lately to Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, and I've really been enjoying it.  I was tempted to skip some of the episodes when I didn't know, or didn't care for, the guest, but it turns out that those have been some of my favorites.  Some of the conversation is profane and low-brow, particularly from Gilbert, but the episodes are filled with great stories about the golden age of entertainment, and featuring people who were stars even before I was born.
     One anecdote that I particularly liked was about Henry Fonda.  I don't remember who the guest was, but he was acting in a play with Fonda, and they were talking about playing to the crowd, like if a friend was in the audience, they would think that they were performing especially for that person as a way of motivating the best possible performance.  The guest on the show asked Fonda what he does if he doesn't know a single person in the house, and Fonda said that he just picks someone out of the audience at random and plays to them, without them even knowing that Fonda essentially dedicated his performance that night to them.
     I mention this story because last night I went to the Tamale Hut for one of our regular reading nights.  After the event was over, we were standing around chatting and I spoke to one of the women who read that night.  She told me that she was kind of nervous to get up there and read, but as she was into her story, she saw me watching intently, and she thought, "Well, as long as that guy is paying attention and looking like he's enjoying the story, I'm okay."  She said she relaxed after that, and her story was great, as well as the presentation.  I felt honored to have been able to help put her at ease, even though I didn't realize I was doing it. 
     I also was thankful she didn't see me with my eyes closed, as I sometimes do when I'm really concentrating on the story being read.  If she had seen that, she might have though, "I'm putting them to sleep!" and that wouldn't have been a good thing.
