My Lessons from The Three Sisters 2011

Saw a great production (with a very pleasing translation) of the Chekov play at Berkeley Repertory Theatre last night. Here are my takeaways:

  • Don't get married just because everyone seems to do that.
  • Don't marry someone who doesn't help you be more the person you most want to be.
  • Don't marry someone until you've figured out you enjoy living together.
  • Don't have kids until you take care of other people's children enough to figure out that you both enjoy it.
  • Don't assume that something external to you – person, job, city – can be the source of all your happiness.
  • If you do have the foresight to adapt the world around you to better fulfill your vision of a happy life, don't be petty, passive-aggressive, and/or abusive in how you go about it or everyone will hate you.
  • Go to motherfucking Moscow already. Jeez.

"You couldn’t exactly say, for example, that Thomas Jefferson had no familiarity with dark-skinned people. His problem was that he couldn’t figure out how to live the life he in fact was living unless he owned these people as slaves. And as it would have been unbearable to him to see himself as so heartless, unjust, and cruel as to keep in bondage people who were just like himself, he ignored the evidence that was in front of his eyes and clung to the fantasy that people from Africa were not his equals."

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
