Ah well, Backstage liked my performance, even if they didn’t like the play.
I didn’t vote in today’s primaries. One bit of business led to another led to another, and my entire day was digested in minutes and hours. I feel rather dreadful about it — it’s our responsibility as citizens to vote. Granted, my vote will only be counted, and make a difference in the outcome of the election, if there’s a tie. Otherwise people other than myself will decide the outcome of the election. But, still, it’s the principle of the thing. I’m deeply dedicated to causes in which I have absolutely no influence.
Must find more time to write. So much to say, so little time. I promised Virago a full-length Hermit Bird in two months. That alone would be tractable, except I’m opening Arms and the Man at Rude Guerrilla in two weeks.
