Before the Show
You know, a good performer will tell you that costume and make-up aren’t illusion. Put on a suit and suddenly you command a little respect. If you go to the oldest part of the cemetery, it looks the loneliest … because it is the loneliest. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Bring a bunch of flowers to the cemetery—they don’t have to be the most expensive flowers, any flowers will do. Find the section of the cemetery with the oldest graves and leave a single flower on each grave. Like a boutonnière on a suit, I promise you, the whole section will change. Take a picture and send it to me.
This picture doesn't really do it justice. You were right of course. It really did look a lot nicer when we were done.
