To what end, my lord?

The problem with experience is that it does tend to beg this question. It becomes a little harder to just DO things. Shows, for example. In the beginning, you just dive in because it seems like it might be fun. You think, “I want to make a show! I have this play and I have this skill, let’s just do it!” And you do. And you discover how much work it can be and how much heartbreak there is to encounter along the road and how when it’s all over, those may be the only things you take with you. So the next time someone proposes “Just putting on a show” you cannot help but ask, “To what end?”
