You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

retreat to an egalitarian commune with friends and family on hundreds of acres, or just keep my focus on community-level activism through my capoeira grupo and other efforts. avoid all media, especially anything involving me. no interviews, no reading of reviews.
