September 5: Mi enemigo, mi amor
"Here" refers to many different spaces, physical and metaphysical: here in San Francisco, here in WICKED, here in Elphaba's (green) skin, here in the Blogosphere.
Will WICKED's closing mean the end of "Unnaturally Green," my blog?
Yes, I think so. It's sad, I know, but isn't life made more beautiful because we know we must die???
My final posts on "Unnaturally Green" will together strum a glorious swan song that is at once a surrender and an apotheosis, in which truth and beauty envelop the decay wrought about by time's tragic asymmetry and perform a mystical dance with death that is both contentious and erotic, like that scene between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas in "Zorro" where he rips her dress. (My blog is Antonio Banderas, and September Fifth is Catherine Zeta-Jones.)
But, what's better, I shall start anew! I have decided that I shall indeed continue to blog, this time about my adventures back in NYC. New thrills, new chills. So y'all best keep readin'!
Full unveiling of my next blog (name, content, goals) will come in the final week here in SF, but this is your first preview. It might be way weirder than "Unnaturally Green," because I will be in the throes of existential questioning and despair, but maybe not. It might actually have a bit of relevance, and photojournalistic flair. Who knows!
Stay tuned for my next post, in which I shall, at long last, tell you about my Elphaba dresser, Kathleen Giordano, and how she is a heroine of the highest order (she literally wipes my nose sometimes).
