O, say!

Or don’t say. Sometimes I think we may overdo our mandate for self expression. My client today overwhelmed me with an abundance of oversharing. Yesterday, we saw two performances that were clearly devised to express something very personal – but both were so sad, so close to the bone, so awkward and uncomfortable that it’s hard to imagine how anyone could experience them as empowering. Those things didn’t need to be said. I didn’t need to hear them. I rather wish I hadn’t.
