Treasure Island, Episode 1 of 3

 I had the delight of participating in this Zoom production of Treasure Island. Here is Episode 1 of 3:





Tradition?

 

doug smith quotes

The trouble with revolution is breaking things. The problem with ignoring tradition is that you forget what got you here, and what has mattered before.

Certainly, we don't need to follow tradition without question.

We also don't need to overplay our hand. Nuance is an art. Inspiration is an art. Balance...well, you know...it's an art.

Poem: either / or

we do not always (read: seldom) have

choices or

            opportunities to call

chances for how

            the outcome arrives

alive in expectations we 

    genuflect gyrations to

promises unkept and either swept or

    wept away

you swept me off my feed all

    enthusiastic and smiling (a smile that

    feels endless) ending

spending our hearts ration of 

    rational being

beating so out of tempo either

        two hundred beats per minute

or paused to a stop
