2005? I don't have a page for 2005. Should I?
Summary2004 -- I don't know what I will direct. The Possessed threw away my wishlist. My plan was to work on thew new draft of the play. I am thinking about breaking my promice to myself not to write screenplays ever. The Possessed is so close to be a script. And -- asking for it!

Notes"When I was a young man I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. I didn't want to be a failure so I did ten times more work." --George Bernard Shaw

Beckett in Directing Class script breakdown
Another year ahead, another year behind.The "chronicles" pages were to serve as my records and plans... Does it work?
A few notes --
Directing conference in St. Petersburg, May 28, 2004 (I don't think I will go, but I am going to Moscow in three days -- 12.27.03).
Proposal: "Virtual Theatre and Hyper-Drama" (in Russian).
Several writing projects and directing: Bergman (Wilde Strawberries) and Kurosawa for UAF season 2004-2005 (replaced; we didn't have the rights).
Last week before 2004: I have to finish the web-updates (4th generation). New gears: photo.txt, quotes.txt and banners.txt...
The old ones are still not updated: topics.txt, table.txt, banner.txt and so on.
I need to cut down the webmaster's time -- do I have enough cyber space to use it? I hope that everything I need is in place; the number of pages, the structure, the organization. (I have to keep replacing "htmlgears" with new codes; not Tripod is not reliable). So-called "new" is now 2004.txt, for example.
I must put to rest the issue of traffic, focus -- on content only!
There are real serious issues I better think about.
More my webmaster's new year resolutions?

When I will get to this new Freud page? Who knows?
On Method pages there are several pages, potencially connected (Yoga), but what is missing the Stirnir's concept! Max Stirnir (Marx' contemporary and adversary) writes about "Ego" and the final stage of overcoming it (simular to Buddha), the essential aspect in advanced acting training. It's not an accident that late Stanislavsky was so interested in esoteric philosophy (Guerdiev, Blavadsky, Rerikh) - like in shamanism, the highest moment of performance is not a performance at all. Overcoming the mortality, breaking into the divine and sacret. This is where actor becomes an artist.
Here is another problem. Theological. Freud, Marxism and everybody else believe that "Id" is the deepest, uncontrollable and dark animalist foundation of our inner structure, but what if Christianity is indeed correct and this is the place of God? ("God inside you") - what if the unknown is the superior universe in our soul-scape?
Augustin writes about the angelic nature of man, but I have no time for "research"...
"SELF" -- my book I work on right now: nonfiction.

2005 * After so many years of webbing I cannot change the nature of my webpages -- they are what they were from the start; notes, thoughts, points I make for myself for classes and productions. Do they have an independent existence? Maybe, somewhere in the future...
