I'm not going stir crazy.
Miles Mandwelle (Director)
Six days ago, a decision was made regarding a grant I submitted over the summer.
What I know: it was approved!
What I don't know: how much it was for.
In attempting to keep my cast and crew together, I am gently enquiring with the company without seeming impatient, to little avail. I have, however, learned a great deal about the phrase "don't look a gift horse in the mouth."
The phrase can be traced back to St. Jerome, who reportedly had the following words to say:
Translated, we get "a given horse's teeth are not inspected." Given horse (as in a horse given to you) has since evolved to "gift horse," meaning that it is impolite to inspect a gift too closely.
In other words, be patient. The universe is conspiring in your favor.
But here are some fun pictures and videos involving horses for your convenience.
MILES MANDWELLE is not reading EQUUS or making any jokes about Catherine the Great right now. He is refraining from being anxious. He is calm, NEIGH, he is paient. Neiiiigh. Neiiiiiiiiiiigh. Clippity clop clippity clop.....
