stays in arms, giggles with glee,

quakes with high ha-ha!

It’s the birthday of the playwright John Guare too (books by this author),born in New York City in 1938. His best-known work is Six Degrees of Separation (1991), which contains the monologue by one of the main characters, Ouisa, who says: “I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation. Between us and everybody else on this planet. The president of the United States. A gondolier in Venice. Fill in the names. I find that  extremely comforting that we’re so close.
