It's always important to know when to stop. For me, it's usually before I begin. "Don't do anything until you hear from me," I'm often told. Don't worry, I won't. And you can be sure I'll pretend to be deaf when they eventually do call.
I simply wash my hands of whatever plans are afoot; then dry them on other people's vain ambitions
In the world of action, I am the ghostly face at the window, the creak on the stair, the shadow cast on the wall, a piano playing in an empty room.
So when it comes time to blame whoever is responsible for what's happened - you really shouldn't have done that! - I am the merely the medium, not the message: There are so many who wish to speak!
