Newborn babies are just at the beginning of their lives. And the future and possibilities are endless as to the journey that new little person will take through life, and the impact that they will have on the world around them. [image MS Office Clip Art]
And birthdays each year are thus a reminder of that newness and hope that we retain within us—reminding us that the future is still before us. And though we honor the past, we also celebrate what is to come.
And though he has worked or studied in some form or other of theatrical performance since he was 17 years old, some 28 years ago–theatre, television, films, audiobooks, documentary narration, other vocal performance, and a circus, etc.—the last 14 years, since 2002, have seen his storytelling/performing artistry catching the interest of and inspiring the imaginations for thousands and now millions of fans and admirers world wide.
Richard Armitage’s busy theatrical performance career has him crisscrossing the globe—and ever more so this past year. And yet, the charming and yes nice guy Richard Armitage also finds time to be socially conscious and he advocates for and supports several charitable causes—see his Just Giving pages linked here (image below, my cap)—with many of these charities involving aiding children and families.
Richard Armitage is also my story writing/telling muse—and the lead actor in all of my stories–and the catalyst for me making so many wonderful Richard Armitage fan friends over the years. So I thank him most sincerely for his gifts of storytelling, advocacy, and philanthropy that he shares with us.
Richard Armitage’s future is bright and I, like many of you, look forward to his upcoming performances this year and beyond.
And for his 45th birthday and always, I wish for Richard Armitage every happiness that he wishes for himself. Hugs & Love, Grati
