Dreams have only one owner at a time. That’s why dreamers are lonely.– Erma Bombeck
dictionaryofobscuresorrows: n. the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place, as maladapted to your society as a seal on the beach—lumbering, clumsy, resting often, easily distracted, huddled in the company of other misfits—unable to recognize the nearby ambient roar of your intended habitat, in which you’d be fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home. & “Sail away, sail...

on not making it easy for the young white guy
I didn’t like him the minute he stepped into the room. Almost in spite of myself. The young white boy swagger, the “I went to Brazil and talked to all the right people of the Theatre of the Oppressed scene and worked with children”, the not washing his own cup… none of it, of course, with any evil intent but all part of a socialization. And in this moment, I saw this socialization as...

“Hi, Found your spine in the trash. Just a couple of ligaments…the rest is still pretty useful. (Uh, well, at least I guess so.) I mean, we could meet and so on but it depends on how urgently you need it. Though, if you don’t mind, one of those vertebrae is mine to keep.

Now that we’ve guided what started as a series of meet-ups in search of a subject towards a forum theatre play called “Heavy Message”, I can grin as I say that we got there through banter, bad jokes and by annoying each other, and by taking our (sleep) dreams as well as any of our half-cooked skills seriously. Something quite abstract can become earthly. I’m pretty relieved about that....

A domestic dog meets a street dog on the road. They start a conversation in which the domestic dog is describing how great it is at his master’s house. So they start towards the house. The street dog notices the mark on the domestic dog’s neck and asks about it. “Oh that, it’s where the chain goes.” “Why?” “Because sometimes they tie me.”...
