Send in the Clowns!

If you were involved in a movie, would you rather be the director, the producer, or the lead performer? (Note: you can’t be the writer!).

The show must go on. OK. But how? The director, producer or whatever, ran out of ideas and decided to let it go. For a mysterious reason the audience seems to don’t count to them. They didn’t bother to send in the clowns to save the evening. Which would be a good thing. At least we would have a little fun.

Why bother? Don’t bother, They’re here. We are the clowns saving the day with our writings about whatever, to fill a grid already full of old posts about and old prompt like today’s. I didn’t bother to look at my archive but what I know for sure is that when it comes to movies, I would rather be the spectator. Go to the theater, wait for the lights to turn off, look at the big screen and enjoy the result of the efforts of writers, directors, actors, and the money of the producer. Actually my older sister directed a movie and my brother in law was the leading actor in it. This is how they met and fell in love more than 40 years ago in the States. Later they both left the film business. My sister worked as a journalist making TV interviews and video reportages and my brother in law was a teacher in a University.

So here am I like a clown, writing stories about my family, because I don’t want to leave the daily prompt, and I really think the show  must go on. I would like somebody at WordPress headquarters pick up the dying daily prompt and begin to publish fresh, inspiring prompts or at least send in the clowns with some silly, funny ideas to write about. I don’t think we will have them soon. Well, maybe next year…

The Show Must Go On.

    1. Is a celebration night in the Carnegie Hall in the occasion of the birthday of Sondheim, the author of the song, in 2010, I think.

    2. I think it’s a concert in the Carnegie Hall in the occasion of some anniversary of Sondheim, the author of the song. But I’m not 100 % sure.

What do you think?
