Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
Kurt Vonnegut

The evening sings in a voice of amber, the dawn is surely coming.
Al Stewart

Being on 'Glee' was amazing. I remember my first day on set, my first day I arrived to the set I was in my trailer and all of the actors came and banged on my door - Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera. They all welcomed me with open arms, so it was a great experience. It felt like family, and I miss them a lot over there.
NeNe Leakes

Paula Danziger
