Art & life

Just went to see Rent (somebody laid 2 spare tickets on me – good seats).  I knew it was about marginal city life + being homeless, nearly homeless, squatters… I’d forgotten that illness & death were major components, though I’d been informed on that at one time.  Beautifully done (here in SF), but couldn’t help crying & crying & crying…till most of my face was saturated…that must be what they mean about crying a river, feel like a watercourse.  Now temporarily dryeyed.

But what it was really about is how you’ve only got this moment, and it’s all about love.  Joe was aware of this more of the time than most people I know (including myself).
