A note I wrote some years ago that I include here as a note to myself
Do not make excuses for yourself, nor let others make them for you.
On stage you each of you has the power to destroy the earth a hundredtimes over, and then in the next breath reform it according to your will.
This power is infinite and therefore it is distributed evenly to all.
The only restrictions on this power are those you choose to place upon yourselves.
No one can take this power from you unless you yourself relinquish it.
