Working with tim in an oak tree was like jumping into the sweetest unknown with a helmet on as tim exudes certainty, brilliance and trustworthiness at once. Any objectivity of this one of a kind unusual piece eluded me until I stepped away and caught my breath, upon which time I was bowled over by what had just happened. This lack of objectivity and required combination of both courage and surrender made the experience both exhilarating and transfixing. The nature of my having been in the dark before it happens (and it does exactly that, it “just happens”) made for the experience of watching the play AND participating in it at the same time. Being in tim’s presence is like being in the presence of a timeless and enigmatic playwright who is committed to urgent authentic immediacy. He artfully mixes profound humanity and comedy, while guiding you through choice-makings that require full throttle presence and bravery. I’ve never been a part of anything like it.

    I think that in some way she finally is getting the top of the hill. I have seen recent pics of her at the LAX and let me say… I haven’t seen her so great never before. She has like a clean aurea.

    She is trascending some paths… and I’m glad.

    Hi I’m Aram from Cuba and I just want to say that: I love Alanis Morissette!
    Her MUSIC is GREAT and her voice is unique. I’m glad that she’s acting now and I want to watch Radio Free Albemuth.

Got something to say?
