details of “destroy, she said”

 

 

“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

this evening, bring yourselves, a flower and a prayer to place in front of the black wall.  this will be the area where i will be working during the run of the show.  tonight, it will be empty, silent, and patient.  your prayers can be for someone you love or for yourself.  this life is a tangled web, but you don’t have cut through it alone…
