Don’t look so sad. What’s the problem?
Gravity weighing you down?
It is on us all, at this point. You are not alone.
Try throwing a ball up in the air and watch it, fall to the floor. Gravity.
I like to do this. Repeatedly. It makes me happy. Please, do not try this with kittens, or any other living object. Glass does not work well either. Or eggs. I know.
Here is the thing. We need a movement. I say we get on the gravity craze. Gravity does not get enough credit. So today, while you are at work, or in your home, try it. Go up to someone’s desk, or kitchen counter. Place your finger on any single object on said desk. Now slowly, slide that object toward the edge. Slowly. You can even stare your co-worker right in the eye for effect. Now. When you are near the edge. Keep sliding. Until the object tips off the edge and falls right to the ground.
Then say. “See? Gravity. Join the movement.” You can jump up and down a couple of times for effect.
I am going to make some signs.
“Gravity’s Got Me Down”
“Gravity. May the Force Be With You”
“Pull my finger.”
Go outside on a busy walk and throw a handful of pennies down. Shout out loud, “Gravity, glorious gravity.”
This will be so good. It won’t let you down.
Well. Actually, it will.
The Gravity Effect. Already at a theatre near you. Already, everywhere.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

“An artist can try and pretend he is not following rules, but let’s remember that nature itself provides rules. Gravity for instance.”
