not TOO long after I started working in theater, I discovered that every grownup ("grownup" = let's say in 40ish territory) who was still working in the arts by that point in their life was CRAAAAAAZZZZZY.
In varying degrees, but. All of 'em, pretty crazy.
I forgot about this for a while, and mostly I'd say that lately I've written that theory off.
Lately-lately, I don't know. Maybe it really does take its toll, all that instability and subjective success.
Also this means I'm heading down the same path myself. The path to CRAAAAAAAAAZZZZZZZY.
