Been a while

It has been a very long time between posts. The lull between the storms. It has been a very quite time between moats. Them nefarious forms. Today I was given reason to re-read some of my prose posted elsewhere on this site, and it raised a few tears as I recalled the times I struggled […]

When Actors Approach You

On occasion, I have been approached by people I have never had anything to do with, who seem to think I may have a higher level of involvement then perhaps I actually do, or are possibly a little inexperienced in the way things actually work. The most common request I get from complete strangers who […]

The Coward Hole

This is probably not what you are expected based upon the title. I am talking about the hole left behind after playing Otto in Noel Coward’s Design for Living earlier this month. The hole left by Coward and his play. It was an amazing experience. Possibly my most favourite production to have worked on to […]

Lost

Life, it goes in circles as I try to catch it. Its face is happy yet violently angry too. It temps me with a coyish beckoning and as I come close, it bites and screams pushing me away and the chase starts again. Why do I chase such a two faced thing you ask. It […]

Wearing naked cloth upon his clothed brow to soak the beads of pearl that pour from around his eyes. I see the fires of […]

Passing

Passing friends march together on different planes at different times. Their footsteps echo through murky fog that muffles and drags sound screaming through its own pomposity. They know each other well yet have not met and no matter how far they walk, they never will. Passing friends march together to different beats on different drums. […]

Time

With time on my hands, I discover the uncovered country that had never been there all along. It drags me through sights that I had always forgotten and blew me back the breath I sighed. I have asked it to stop, but time it seems, is too short for rest. “I’ve never been able to […]

Sea of Hope

Cast adrift in a deep wide yonder I bide my time with sing-song. With too much time to wonder ‘Where has all my life gone?’ My futile paddling gains me little But helps to occupy my hopeless sole. The rain it falls like windswept spittle While water currents take full control. My boat, Leaky. With […]
