from by Jeff Johnson




. . . There must have been a moment, at the beginning, where we could have said - no. But somehow we missed it.
– From Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, Tom Stoppard

I go on and I don't know whether I'm going to shame or to light and joy. That's the trouble, for everything in the world is a riddle.
– From The Brothers Karamazov, Fedor Dostoevski

Weak heart slows me down.
Sad shape that I'm in today.
Someone left me here.
And it's sad shape that I'm in today.

Tell me,
What's my line?
You better dim the lights.
'Cause I never planned on being on this stage all alone without you.

Someone missed their cue,
Sad shape that I'm in today,
Someone left me here,
And it's bad shape that I'm in today.
