I Cudda Been a Star

Really. I cudda been a star. I trod the boards in purely amateur the-a-tre productions in college – I was a thoroughly convincing, perpetually-sloshed and grandly-rotund Friar Tuck my senior year. When I was in my late 30s, the director of a wonderful regional company in NYS tried to discover me when I helped her audition other people for a production.

And then there was the call, a few years ago, from a Seattle home goods company which wanted to sponsor the next Marie Kondo or Home Edit team. And I wanted that, soooooooooooooo much – fortune, rubbing elbows with the occasional movie star…. Didn’t work out, obviously. For a lot of excellent reasons.

And I’m soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad it didn’t. I can no longer even pretend to imagine having collaborative relationships with clients which would involve exposing them like that, even if the exposure only revealed the fact that they needed help choosing a new arts & crafts cabinet. The work is inexpressibly more important than that. I’m not sure why I’m reflecting on this today, but so be it.
