I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately.  But none of it seems to be focused – it’s really rambling, and all over the map.  Maybe that’s where it all needs to be right now.

I have an opportunity to write a small piece and perform it – later in the month.  Really, I just looked in the calendar, and it’s about 2-½ weeks away.  I’m starting to get anxious, because I have no idea of what my piece is going to be – yet.  I have a theme – and that’s a start.  But I have no idea of what I’m going to write.  Here’s the theme:

“How to face death in life/instructions on how to die.”

It’s a broad subject, to say the least.  And one that is already challenging me very deeply.  I have no idea of what to talk about, because I have so many different ways of approaching this.  I think my problem is that I am thinking to broadly, and I should concentrating on making it simple – there’s just too much to talk about; so, let’s try to focus on one or two things.

What I’m thrilled about is the participation of many actors who I’ve got to know over the last year.  A majority of them are graduates of the Waterfront Playhouse & Conservatory – and they are all passionate and committed to having this new collective of artists create something original.  I get a lot of inspiration from this group.

I’ll have more info about this performance piece soon.
