    The Journals of Spalding Gray ePUB ´ Journals of journals ebok, spalding mobile, gray pdf, The Journals pdf, of Spalding book, Journals of Spalding epub, The Journals of Spalding Gray EpubPretty wrenching stuff as expected but the sheer levels of misery and self flagellation were still a surprise Maybe it's simple enough to say This is what being an original gets you But the constant harrowing failure to know who he even was most days the battles to find any kind of path when none seemed possible the struggles with his sexuality and identity the impossibility of justifying to himself anything he was doing harder still in that he was breaking new ground all the timeand was it worth it For the audience yes what a uniue and wonderful legacy but it's pretty clear that nothing was going to fill the void for this particular artist Depressing but fascinatingI sometimes feel like that; like I am this open conduit through which I let other energies pass It started as an actor and the other energies were other people’s scripts Now it is my life that is passing through me
