BUTTERNUT BREAD REVISITED

What do you do if you find yourself doing something that feels wrong, and you find yourself in circumstances that you aren't able to handle?

I don't mean GUILT -- the way you might feel if you found you found yourself involved sexually with someone you didn't really like. I mean punch-in-the-stomach, desperation -- no, no, I can't do that!

I'm not talking about stage fright -- when your muscles turn to jelly -- you're not sure you can do the choreography -- you're afraid to step on to the stage. (It happened at my very first performance at the YMHA in New York City.)

Oh yes, I've had jelly-knees stage fright since then -- at Spoleto, Festival of Two Worlds -- had it in London on opening night -- at Lincoln Center just before the curtain went up.

But the punch-in-the-stomach fear? -- click -- here's what happened to me in Iowa.
