Thank you, Arden!

Arden’s award on my coffee table.

Form is a way of conserving energy. The energy soon leaks out of an ill-made work of art.

Or, think: A playwright, director, and funder walk into a bar…

Narrative is radical, creating us at the very moment it is being created. We will not blame you if your reach exceeds your grasp; if love so ignites your words they go down in flames and nothing is left but their scald.
