La Grande Bellezza: Admired but Never Known.

March 5, 2014


Once a woman passes a certain threshold of physical attractiveness, it’s not unreasonable to claim that, for her, every heterosexual man is, in principle, sexually attainable. In most cases, a man will resist the sexual advances of a woman he finds attractive only when there is some kind of promise, rule, or law he feels […]

Sunday School Poetry: An Author’s Creed.

April 18, 2010


An Author’s Creed. Let us pray. I believe in beauty the begetter of human being, the source of happiness and peace. And in art, its honest expression our creations; conceived in love, produced with intention; an expression sometimes of sorrow and suffering, of the darkest absences of beauty, and of our unlimited possibility; art approaches […]

Not Another Metaphysical Poem! Beauty And Remains.

April 8, 2010


Beauty And Remains. In wisdom, truth is trivial. Only beauty remains. Only beauty remains. Beauty and remains. – And because JR and NT are doing it, and because the poem is so damn short, I thought I best memorize it and record it! Expect more recorded poetry in the future! It just makes sense! Please […]

Beauty, Art, Community: What’s Your Three-Word Portrait?

January 25, 2010


I think I can summarize myself with three words: beauty, art, community. Here goes: Beauty breathes through me and I bask in its diffused expansiveness. Beauty is everywhere. Art is an artifact, a token, and a conduit of beauty. In making art, I make sense of myself. By sharing art, we make sense of each […]

An Experiment In Cosmology: A Hundred Million Billion Paradises Yet To Come

September 25, 2009


Before there is a beginning, there is nothing. Nothing is boundless and infinite. The impossible can happen. And it did. Creation happened and it filled nothing instantly without any — and in every — direction. Because creation was everywhere, it was aware of itself. It saw in itself beauty and, because it saw beauty, it […]

Why Theater? For Beauty’s Sake, Together

April 8, 2009


When Albert Camus was asked in an interview why he worked in theater, his answer was simple: a theater is one place in the world where I am happy. I can think of no better answer to the question and, for me, the process of creating, performing, and promoting theater is a unique source of […]

Web 2.0: How It Ruined My (Imaginary) Sex Life

April 3, 2009


As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. Oops. Sorry, wrong reminiscence. Take two. As far back as I can remember, a girl, girlfriend, critical theorist, or celebrity gossip columnist has always been very quick to alert me to the fact that so much of the female public “beauty” image — especially amongst celebrities […]

The Times They Are A-Changing: Another Moment in the Alt-Beauty / Beauty Narrative

February 26, 2009


I stumbled across because one of my female Facebook friends became a fan of its Facebook group. And it got me a-thinking and a-writing and a-questioning. As always.  In my news feed, the associated image was quite tiny but some of the associated copy is easily read. It is : ” Everywhere you look […]

Paris is Dead, A Play in Three Acts

December 3, 2008


Paris is Dead is by far my best play. In fact, if I ever see it produced properly, it might very well be a “so long and thanks for the fish because my work is done here” moment. There are lots of plays I want to write but this play is the only one I […]
