Fear is powerful.

I’m always afraid of what happens if you stage pain for an audience full of people who mostly don’t understand that pain at all. I’m even more worried about things that may make that pain palatable. I’m going to see The Bluest Eye on stage tonight. The poster image is not the one from this show, though the script is the same. I’m curious about what my own reaction will be–especially because some of the fundamental parts of myself seem to be missing now that I’m here. What’s left often seems grossly distorted.
