The compressor quits. What now? Figure out something else, some other way to make things happen.

It's too dark to see to put on make up, to dark to see a mask, too dark to do much moving around in the dark without falling, tripping, so pretty much stay put.

Your mind. Your voice. A residue of ambition , experience, talent to entertain and scare someone by appealing to their minds.
Maybe some purely creative challenges once and awhile can lead us to new and maybe incredible ways of doing and thinking?
