I’m a playwright. So I love drama. On the stage.
But lately, drama has taken up residence beyond the fourth wall of my personal Globe Theatre.
So I’m learning how to say “no” to drama in my real life. It’s not all that fun, really.
I remember when Dick Solomon (played by John Lithgow) in Third Rock from the Sun decided he had to end all the dramatic relationships in his life.
“But now I have no one!”, he cried.
He was right. Getting rid of drama can be isolating. I’m trying to remember that isolation is just the lifeboat taking me to a better place.
