Significant Stuff

January 29, 2010

I love being in ‘show mode’.  This is when that fabulous exchange between Henslowe (played by Geoffrey Rush) and Fennyman (played by Tom Wilkinson) from Shakespeare in Love is epitomized.

Henslowe: Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.
Fennyman:  So what do we do?
Henslowe:  Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.
Fennyman:  How?
Henslowe:  I don’t know. It’s a mystery.

Granted, this is nothing like the scale of a “real show” but the effort and care is still there.  And the mystery is still the same.  So’s the wonder.

Can I have an Amen?

The mystery is still just that.  OH, and it still works.  Just like that.  I had almost as many amazing “so-and-so volunteered to do this or to help with that or to donate those…” yesterday as there were things left on the list to do.

How come?  It’s a mystery.
