Back from the theater tonight, two interesting emails in my inbox. First, from a BRT artistic associate:
"It has been great having you here. You make an invaluable contribution to art at BRT. Thank you both."
Immediately following it was an email from someone with a hotmail address:
"Don't dismiss my comments just because i am a big fan of yours.I just saw your show at B-rep and it needs help."
The "big fan" then goes on to explain the problems with my monologue (it should be more funny, if I were thinner then it would be less disturbing to hear about sex) and so forth.
There are a couple of ways one can view this, and I think in a short time I've worked through most of them. My simple takeaway is this: I am very glad that the first email was from an artist I highly respect, and that the second was from some dude with a hotmail account, and not vice versa.
