A mixture of pieces of writing, some recent, but many older. Some can be spoken aloud,, some from my diary, some are fragments, some are rants responding to things in the news, some are about performing, some are stories.
Empathy- the feeling of connection that humans have, initially touch, proximity, sharing the same air, space, house and furniture, is slowly being usurped by digital channels that trick us, actually mediate while apparently replicating and leading to disconnection. Technology- my phone, my computer help me to survive my loneliness, but maybe by making it bearable, prolongs it so it becomes my way of being. We are great survivors, gods of making do, and that may be our strength or our undoing! Drama!
