It gets that way sometime.
It's again late at night ...
Huh. Not really. It's twenty after eleven. Seems later. Much.
The play opens in six days and suddenly the theatre and others want to make changes. The producer, a woman with dubious talent and the uncanny ability to spout inane pedantic and totally cloying advice, sweetly suggests I count to ten, and then everything will be just fine.
I want to count to one and then kill her. It's the humane thing to do - I want to put her out of my misery.
But I won't. Instead I'll watch my vision pecked by people who do so in order to advance their own agendas ,,, It's happened before, and eventually I dropped away for ... years ... because I wanted something pure and was optimistic enough to think that next time I would get it.
But next time was no different from the last time, or the time before that, or the hundreds of times before that ...
So I will count to ten and tell myself that everything will be just fine because what I really really really really want is to be really really really mediocre.
Are there enough pills or drinks or drugs in the world to allow me to believe that? Dear God, why did you plant in me the desire to create - to reflect something of You - and then surround me with morons?!
Or maybe I'll just drop away again.
On my own, with all of my falls.
