The Stage Hands…

Alright, I’ve readily admitted that I am the type of person that can single handedly transform the most simplest thing in his own life into a complex web of plans within plans within plans. Now it appears that for some reason, when I happen to be involved in other people’s lives…even their simplest things in life become the quest for the holy grail.

Except Monty Python’s not in it.


It’s not like I want to make people’s lives more complicated or anything like that. It’s just that when I usually have that second opinion that some people come to me for, it was always born out of the years I spent figuring things out. To me at least the answers seem simple and almost philosophically poetic.

To other people however, it’s just a fucking headache that makes sense.

Which is the bad thing really when you think about it. I mean…throughout my life I’ve been this nexus of things that need to be done. For some reason, the little actions I have around people seem to have a large impact in their lives. So much so, it has become a little unnerving if not freaky at this realisation of power I seem to wield.

I mean I have mentioned before, I’m not the type of person that stands up there with a lot of you guys. I’m just the guy who manages the stuff backstage. Whatever I do always remains unseen and very rarely makes the limelight and that’s the kind of person I am. I helped some of you remember your lines. I have made sure your costumes are in the right place. Sometimes I even change the scenes a bit when things need tweaking a bit.

It’s only when I’m directly involved in the play that things become messy.

I’m not supposed to be in the scenes. I know I’m not supposed to. Everyone has a part to play in life. If all the world is a stage, then by all means thing’s will definitely be screwed if we’re not playing our part. The way I see it…there is everyone else out there on the stage…and there is me. When people start trying to get me involved in the play…it kinda makes things more complicated because seriously…I’ve got no part to act.

Does this make sense so far?

I don’t know. I just don’t want to make people’s lives more complicated than it already is. I’ve spent my life trying to make sure people’s lives have the clarity they need to keep moving and living life. No matter how fucked up my own life is to keep finding a place of clarity in my own life, doesn’t mean I haven’t stopped doing my job.

I guess all I want to say is that I don’t want to make your life harder. I’m here to give you a hand out of whatever mess you’re in not be the cause for complications by being a star part of it.

That’s my job in life and I know that.

I’m here to remind you that your part is up next.

Time to be on stage.

Time to be the star you wanted to be.

  1. why be the extras 🙂 you are the star in the play of your life. got to sheath the curtains some day

  2. Becuase in life we’re not an island. We’re all connected to each other and we all have roles to play in the world. We rule our lives the best we can as the characters we play.

    But in the big picture.

    We are who we are. 🙂
