Taking no prisoners. Including herself.

Starting over in 2011 with (near) daily posts. This year I’m resolved to organize my blogging life. Condense. For simplicity, here’s a link: Posted to my performance blog.

It just so happens I am alive again. I woke up this morning, and realized I was not, as initially anticipated, dead. (I had started to get this picture. Maybe my life was over? No, I just needed a new bed).

Unedited Freewrite with Kate: 09/21/10 Topic: Home is… Home is where the heart is. Home. That word sounds nice. Sounds warm and soft and sacred. I want to be there. This is not home. Well, I don’t know. It almost felt like home, felt like a place I could make home, or maybe was home […]

I love it all. I love color and I love darkness. I love light and I love form. I love yoga. I love breath. I love working. I love naps. I love sending an email at work, and writing “cheers!” at the end of it. I love helping people. I love doing quality, quality work. […]

Dear Kate, Good morning. At your suggestion, I downloaded an emoji app for my iPhone. It gives me a strange, child-like joy now when I text. Be prepared for copious expressive, colorful little icons being blasted your way. You can exist if you want to. You also get to choose how many times per week […]

Two of my friends are getting married tomorrow. I was asked to officiate the wedding. I’ve been blown away at what an honor this has been! Which is why I ask all of you readers to not tell anyone that I just now finished my wedding speech(!) The wedding is in 17 hours. I always […]

Welcome dear friend Kate, I am glad you are following your destiny. I am glad I can help you do so in my small way. You are taking steps into thin air, and having faith the foot-stones will appear. Admirable. I salute you, and support you. Thank you very much for the delicious meals you […]

If you ever hear me complain, please know that it is not real. I mean, the frustration being experienced, by my future self, I’m sure will be quite real. But it’s also not. Not real at all. In this moment, I am so in love with living, that I do not know how I will […]

Dear NKS, Oh, dear. My sweet little blog of half a decade. I feel like it’s been… too long. With all this madness around producing BURST, I haven’t had a lot of time to just… write. Plus, this little identity crisis I seem to have started. It’s a very

Today I did a little Sunday-improv action with Upright Citizens Brigade over at Pan Theater. It’s funny how I enrolled in the Level I improv class back at the new year just to “keep myself from getting rusty” while I had to take a little performing hiatus while I started my new job in January […]

When it comes to “progress,” why is it always two steps forward, one step back? When they say “life is a dance,” I didn’t know it would be so tedious. (And my inner dance partner has two left feet. How many times do I have to tell her to just feel the goddam rhythm before […]

…we have for far too long been undermining ourselves. Yes, the world is full of beautiful, talented people. But we are beyond comparison. We are at zero. Not one. Not negative one: zero. Neutral. Incomparable. Singular. Is. You are a beautiful, talented human being. I am a beautiful, talented human being. What are we waiting […]

What are we to do, my Beloved, if we are not willing to undo everything for you? I stumble, and I blunder, and I fail. I could repeat this a thousand times. But here, in this moment, I know that I am doing all that I can. And all that I can do is understand […]

Some great things are afoot: it looks like I might have an opportunity to bring my solo performance BURST back to the Land of Enchantment for a little more New Mexico magic. I’ve been nominated to perform BURST as the keynote speaker at the only peer-run consumer wellness conference in ABQ. I should hear back […]
