Nobody showed up for the premiere of my play Performing Privacy.  Copying the image using tracing paper left pencil indentations on the paper below, so now the trace has become part of the original.  I can’t sleep at night, because I keep having daydreams.

 

 

*The term “sort” comes from John Locke’s “sorts of substances,” with our understanding of each substance made of collections of ideas that are “supposed to flow from the particular internal constitution” of the substance (An Essay Concerning Human Understanding 2:23:2-3), and from FedEx’s “sort,” the twice daily receiving and routing of packages at airport hubs.
