This Life

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.


-- from "Leisure," by W.H. Davies

At a recent theater performance, we had a large video screen behind us and we played a movie while we performed monologues and music onstage. It was quite the spell-binding show if I don't say so myself.

The movie we played was something I picked up at the local video store. I wasn't exactly sure what it was, but I thought it might work. It turned out to be amazing. It was "Koyaanisqatsi" which is a Hopi word that means "life out of balance."

  1. I've seen that film! Brilliant, I wish I could have been there.

    The whole idea of running and rushing just doesn't appeal to me anymore at all. I may have a lot of things I want to do this year, and one of them involves more sitting!
