I had my boyfriend who smokes use matches for a few days instead of a lighter and record the date and time and whatever he was thinking about while smoking. 
It’s funny that he quit smoking a few weeks after this project.

"

Prompt: WRITE A THIRTY-SECOND PLAY. Here’s mine:

“Is it so wrong,” asked the sea,
“that everything is possible?”

“I am so vast,” said a distant arm
of the same sea, rising up to clutch the moon.

“Oh my,” said the first dollop of sea,
“I didn’t see you there.

“See me, I am,” sang the hand of sea,
twisting the bulb out of its place.

“Is it so wrong,” they sang in unison,
“that everything is possible?”

Milk-drops of light falling
like chips of paint, then darkness.

"We praise people for being “naturally” smart, too, “naturally” athletic, and etc. But studies continue to show, as they have for some time now, that it is generally healthier to praise schoolchildren for being hardworking, than for being naturally gifted. We know now that to emphasize a child’s inherent ability places pressure on that child to continue to be accidentally talented, which is something that is hard for anyone to control. When the children who are applauded for their natural skills fail, they are shown to take the failure very personally. After all, the process of their success has always seemed mysterious and basic and inseparable from the rest of their identity, so it must be they who are failing as whole people. When students are instead complimented and rewarded for their effort and improvement, they tend to not be so hard on themselves. When they fail, they reason, “Well, I’ll work harder next time.” They learn that they are capable of success, rather than constantly automatically deserving of it, and they learn simultaneously that they are bigger and more complex than their individual successes or failures."

were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living."
