I guess I don’t have much to write about this week. I’ve had plenty of time to come up with an idea to write about but as you see the page is scant. Oh, sure, there are words, but it’s more polite conversation than anything else.
I’ve been over thinking this space in the last couple of days and that isn’t great. It’s a theater of the mind: A space where connection can happen, meaningful stories can be told, entertainment had for an hour. But this theater has a flaw. One can’t ever see or hear the audience from the stage. Luckily for me the bulk of the amusement in this project comes in the creation phase rather than the staging phase.
This week’s presentation is a classic mix tape.Embed from Getty Images
