Inspired by American playwright Sarah Ruhl's 100 Essays I Don't Have Time to Write, this collection is a series of miniature reflections, meditations, and ruminations on subjects encompassing matters of theatre and poetry, two subjects very close to Garebian's heart. Perceptive, witty, and intimate, the mini musings bubble with a sense of wonder, excitement, and intimacy. A vibrant, provocative series of mini musings that also affords insight into a particular artistic sensibility as several pieces are really slices of memoir and autobiography.
Taken together, the pieces give a sampling of why I am drawn to Theatre and Poetry. Much of both genres can be disappointing at times. Theatre is built on illusion, of course, and Poetry comes out of dreaming by way of imagining, reflecting, and re-making. They are not useful the way car mechanics or accounting can be, but they are indispensable to me because both are important parts of my life. And my writing on them is also an important part of my life.
