The older the wiser.

When I was 16 I thought I knew everything, the world was easy.  Then when I was 18, I thought I knew nothing when I was 16, but I knew everything then, and that my friends is how age and knowledge is.

I'm 46 now (I think, I never remember how old I am) and I'd like to think that I know quite a bit, I'd like to think enough mistakes have passed by to give me a proper schooling in life, I'd like to think I was bullet proof, but I'm not.  And the reason I'm not is that something inside me doesn't do what he knows is sure fire, something stops me from clumping all the lessons and knowledge I've learnt into my theatre and creating a hit and that something is my incurable need to do the next new thing.  I could easily live off the successful shows I have written and produced but I want to do something, new and something new and something new.

And do you know what, I am glad.

This week I had the idea to do a show in my house to an audience of two.  Financially it is a ridiculous idea, but imagine being in an audience of two, in a house and leaving with something you would never have experienced in your life.

That my friends is me, that is how I roll and I hope that one day, you (the theatre going audience) might catch on - I hope so.
