A wonderful contribution to The World is a Town project from Nadine Wendell-Mojica (USA).
So Nadine lives in Hollywood, and we’re all aware how many people inform their world view on Hollywood Dictates. Even in The World Town it looks like auditions are called for.
You can audition for anything in Hollywood - you can be a showgirl or anything you want to be – but will you find a place in the world? Nadine's characters are filled with a pathos that belies the glitter of these dreams.
I MEAN!! -
I'm friends with a celebrity. What have you ever done with your life? MAN! A searching question in a world of plastic. And the crowning jewel? Read the bottom corner of the left-hand folio.
The hope, the hope-filled, the hopeless, they're all here for the siren song - and the conductor in charge of this teeming throng says “No actually we wont be using you”. I don’t think this is a cynical view of the world, I think this is the world through the eyes of experience.
"I'm tired of you knowing you're beautiful" (Morley) - thats how Nadine ends her treatise on the World according to Hollywood.
