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.

Grit talks humility
Grit Curtis says ...
Hello there. They say you learn more from your mistakes than your successes.
But that’s just not true
They just say that to make you feel better.
I should know because
I have made many many mistakes,
and I can safely say
my mistakes have taught me nothing
No no no, success has taught me all I know.
And though i have succeeded at many things
I still need more, yes I do. I'm not proud Well just a bit
What do I need more of?
but I can’t seem to find it any where,
Am I too proud?
Maybe ... but I'm proud to be proud I have humility enough already,
Yes, that’s right, I have humility enough already, but
Yes too much humility impedes the the push to the peak
Yes I mustn't be too humble. Nor too arrogant.
Arrogance who needs it? certainly not little ol’ humble me, and I am so so humble
Find that perfect blend of pride arrogance and humility
There are far too many people out there giving far too much advice ….
