Favorite Quote:
"The Unexamined Life is not worth Living."


Renounced is the one stiffly clung to
-Forsaken is me-
I do not know what to do.
So Tonight I dream of time
When caricature flakes and withers,
Where façade and act and show are over.

We are who we Are.
An act of wonder in ourselves,
A statement flagrant to all else.
So let us quit this nonsense then
And lie like lovers
Or long lost friends.


The author's comments:
Sometimes you watch a play to figure out who the characters are and sometimes the play figures out who you are. And then sometimes there are no characters and the stage is You.
