Chapter 2 draws to a close. The curtains have come together, there is a moment of darkness and then, the intermission lights start to glow. It’s time to head in to the foyer, and gaze at the carpet, and elbow for drinks, and talk about the show. Perhaps in a loud and overly confident manner, perhaps in murmurs to the warm body you convinced to accompany you.
This intermission might draw on for a while, but then again, it might not. Keep your ear tuned in for the gentle chiming that will come over the PA system. I’ll ask you to return to your seats in time. When I have a new act to perform.
