Mike Daisey noon hour #allthehours

"To be free we have to let go of this language ... we have to find our own way."

The tale of JM and DF was interrupted by a fire alarm. The building had to be cleared. We all filed outside and grouped around the flagpole, where Mike Daisey stood. With dogs barking as they played with people and as the rain started coming down more. Rumor had it that last year the fire alarm went off here and it took 1hr45m or 1hr20m for the fire department to get it shut off. At about 20 minutes, Daisey said he was going in and anyone was free to follow him or not. He thought if we went in, the alarm would stop.

He went first and he was at the top of the stairs. The alarm went off.

There is no fire.

We have a longer break. Daisey is back stage making adjustments to his monologue.

I will be here when this ends at 6pm. No way I'd not hang out to the last word now.
