Tennessee Williams: Judgment Day

Interview with Tennessee Williams
Conducted by James Grissom
New Orleans

You have to realize--it will be forced upon you to realize--that Judgment Day arrives each and every hour, every day, sometimes several times at particularly extreme moments. So we all have to begin crafting and living and defending the life we've been granted. Now! Immediately! The house of life is riotously on fire, and we save the house through our actions. Actions of love and generosity and creativity.

Live, goddammit!

Sands through the hourglass, indeed. I've seen too much life disappear. Too many people gone.

I have to get myself well and together and work and defend this life of mine.

And so do you.

Everyone on this fragile planet needs to face the Judgment Day.
