A mixture of pieces of writing, some recent, but many older. Some of them are written to be spoken aloud, ranted, recorded or for performance, maybe imagine a voice speaking it, some is just thoughts about things, about teaching performance, some are stories.

In a world where anyone who does not toe the line is dismissed as mad, the balance needs redressing. By 'mad people' I just mean outsiders - mad people-
trying to make the impossible possible
by doing so
they invent new paths,
I’m attracted to their doggedness
but disturbed by their mess and inability
to work lightly and cleanly with the world as it goes
as it swings and wings its way.
Often the mad ones just wear their chaos openly and don't care.
Its the ones that pretend everything is neat and hunky dory
The ones that think themselves normal The ones that judge others, call people weird,
they are the weird ones;
