So the Projector is also empathetic.
And he makes us and the audience feel sympathy for him.
So the Projector is also your Protector.
He watches you walk home at night.
He protects you.

American city. This portion concerns Magic Marvin, a blue marker, a
movie being made, and the Marriott Waterfront Hotel.

To find out more about the show and my fundraising campaign, click below:
To help with my fundraising efforts, friend and quite talented New Mexico-based photographer, Winston Mason Riley, has donated two really lovely signed prints of the most beautiful place in the world — New Mexico. The prints will accompany donations made on behalf of the project. Click the link above to find out more. And, click below to check out more of Winston’s quite stunning work.
In He Ate Quietly into the Wall, a woman wanders into her living room in the middle of the night to find an old friend of her husband’s asleep on the couch. They speak through the night about matters of consequence and matters of no importance. Interwoven with their conversation is the story of two eight-year-old children playing in a fort in the desert — preparing for war.
He Ate Quietly into the Wall attempts to get at: what it feels like to grow up and the things we played with when we were young.
