crazy times, these. this year been extrabusy, which i eh complaining 'bout after the personal-finance fiasco that was 2017...postcarnival recovery never happen because i went straight into a vagina monologues performance, then lilliput show weekend included a whole separate show opening night that i emcee, so double-preproduction wuk, double-show in may, also a month of not a single day off and including travel to perform in bim, which [no days off] continue until midjuly, at which point i start having a whole day off/week, right through to las' week...i am facking exhausted.
but under all that, exciting times, too...sweet t+t experience the biggest, longest, strongest earthquake of my life [a 7.1, if i remember right; my desire to write right now mean i eh stopping to go check, hard luck dey; google is your friend] with some also-hardcore aftershocks and at first, it was terrifying...sitting onstage@blkbox, instantly aware of potential danger from possibly hard+rapid-dropping mangoes if i try to run but lighting instruments above if i stay, i right quick ascertain the mangoes holding on for dear life as warrenman run down from the bluestudio and we go stand together in the middle of the blkyard, watching the costume design folks run out the whiteroom to the doorway+interior gallery. shaking went on so long i had time to realise i was safe and start to enjoy it...people laugh@me when i say it, but tha' earthquake was exciting, dread! i glad i experience it, which, of course, easier to say in this case where there was relatively little damage and no loss of life; i figure in venezuela that eh the language they using to talk 'bout it, but still, i feel the whole world was wobbly+wabby for the longest minutes ever, watch the entire house quaking in the yard and impossibly, not fall apart, see the new cracks in murray street after...dread! 'twas someting else, oui... script! i finally realise part of my taking so damn long to finish diablesse diaries is my just being too damn precious because this project is my child; i way too invested and want waaayyy too much from one script and asking it to do too many tings and cyah be satisfied enough to stop deleting more than i keep and i retarding my own process because every word hadda be perfect and there can be no compromise and all the fuckery me and my insecurities doing myself, so, yeah, i rest it for a minute and letting meself enjoy writing other ting. the wasa man story is now becoming a script and i like it :] that is all about that, for now.
