Sonny Shear had difficulty feeling at ease in social situations because of extreme shyness. His therapist, psychologist James Conway of Burbank, felt that Shear needed professional help in addition to their sessions together. He recommended another professional: actress Jane Marla Robbins. At first, this sounds like an "Only in L. A."-type story. Robbins is not a psychotherapist and doesn't claim to be. She is an actress with international credentials.

Now I really have to write after reading the Dec. 2 letters page in response to "After Your House Burns Down" (by Jane Marla Robbins, Nov. 4). I feel my face burning, my hands tingling. Two years ago, my daughter's house burned down. It was awful. She lost everything, as did I. I lost her, my only child. She was born when I was 17; we shared 31 years as mother and daughter. She survived unspeakably horrible injuries to her face, arms, hands and lungs, only to die a month after the fire.

Afraid your upcoming presentation will put everyone to sleep? Try acting like Al Pacino and take an active pause in your speech. Watch his Academy Award-winning performance in "Scent of a Woman" and notice the pauses he takes and how they add emphasis or dramatic effect to what he is saying.

My husband and I lost our home to a fire while we were on vacation nearly three years ago ("After Your House Burns Down," by Jane Marla Robbins, Nov. 4). We lost everything, including our two dear cats. We went through the pain as Robbins described in her article. I was shocked when my friends would say, "You are so lucky, you get to buy everything new." I pretty much liked what I had and didn't like power shopping for silverware, kettles or clothes. We no longer collect things. We have the bare necessities.

In the old days they would stay and fight. Crusty, independent-minded inhabitants of Topanga Canyon filled barrels with water and laid out garden hoses when brush fires swept toward their scattered mountain cottages and creek-side counterculture enclaves. As recently as five years ago, canyon leaders mass-mailed a safety brochure to residents suggesting that the able-bodied not flee but remain home and be ready to snuff out embers once the fire front passed. But the old-timers are fading away.
