Happy new year! I finally took my beloved Alexander McQueen jacket in for the lining redo. I didn’t want to. I love the lining. But it is ripped to shreds. New year new lining! So I went to buy the fabric and there was this wall. I love fabric stores. All that potential. All that bright promise. May your year be as soft as silk. As fun as fake fur. As sparkly as sequins. May you have the comfort of flannel. The mystery of velvet. The certainty of cotton. May you have the sexiness of spandex and the financial security of wool. May you have the convenience of rayon. And the magic of organza. May the tantra of your life – the weave of it be rich and bold. And may you always feel the golden thread connecting you. Much love. Much love. Much love. XoLearn More

Maybe this is perfect. Whatever sadness lurks. Maybe this is perfect. Whatever fears. Time eating its own tail, planes and wrinkles and papers due. Maybe it is perfect. The wrong thing you said. The tooth that needs to be extracted. Who calls you to play. Maybe it is perfect. Do you know what perfect is? Maybe it is this. This thing that is in your way. Maybe it is perfect. Not all good. At all. But maybe just this way on this random day. The weight of it, the light of it, the sound of it. Maybe as it is, is perfect. It is possible.Learn More
Arizona People! I am going to be performing on Thursday night, July 26 in a super fun show that Tania Katan produces called Lit Lounge at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. That’s SMoCA to you!
“This is “The Most Of” Lit Lounge: Bringing you the Most because we’re already the Best! A special Lit Lounge on the big stage, bringing you the most engaging story-performers and musicians in the nation to share true stories fused by live music!”
I had a blast when I was there last year and I’m very much looking forward to it. Inspired by the title, I am writing a new piece called The Most that begins…”Maybe you are not like me. Maybe you were born happy.”
The next evening, Friday, June 27, I’m doing a special Comedian’s Way Workshop at SMoCA.
In The Comedian’s Way: For Writers, Performers and Other Humans I use a combination of talking, reading and writing techniques which I have developed over the years working with thousands of writers, comedians, and humans of all sorts. Therapists, teachers, lawyers, parole officers, executives, moms, singers etc! I help writers use performance techniques to push through and fine tune their unique comedic perspective and I help comedy performers – storytellers, stand up, one person show people, to get more rigorously honest and exquisitely creative with their comedy. I have helped so many creatives find their voice and choose and develop their projects.
I’m also available during the day on Friday for anyone who wants to dig deeper than we can get to in class. Privates are an hour. One on one time in class is ten minutes, which sounds short but in which a great deal can be accomplished. Plus of course in class you learn from everyone’s work.
The workshop will run from 6:30-8:30. I will give an inspiring talk filled with info and then we will have one on one time for you to do material that can be read, done from the heart, bullet points or improvised on the spot. I then give notes. I don’t always know where the notes come from, but I’m known for them:)Learn More
