Some important reminders on logistics/tickets:
Because of Covid... this show is outside and TICKETS/MASKS are required... If you show up without a ticket, you may have to wait to be seated or be turned away. We don't want to do this! This show is about LOVE & CONNECTION after all... so please get your tickets to attend live and in-person ASAP, and be a part of this beautiful, love-filled night or storytelling, music, dance & connection!
I'm so excited to share this story with you all! And, the four performers opening the show are such LOVES! Beautiful, talented, loving, kind, warm, awesome people with gifts and stories of their own to share!!
If you're wondering (or judging - it's okay, all humans have done or do it)...
WHY on earth someone would create a show about the worst thing they've ever gone through, you're not alone.
I've wondered the same thing many, many times. Usually coupled with tears and throwing myself onto a nearby (hopefully soft if my aim is good) surface. Sometimes it's the ground.
because I'm living in the past. And, it's not because I am a masochist.
It's because the more I share this story, the more I realize how much it's about LOVE... the healing power of love, connection, and how much we all need LOVE, especially right now.
The more I share this story, the more people come to me, from strangers to people I've known for years, to share their story of their person or loved one dying.
Sharing my story gives them permission to share... Permission to feel. Connect.
Somehow, permission is essential to feeling and healing.
About something we all will GO THROUGH! The death of someone we love and our own death...
It's ubiquitous and so important.
But we don't like to talk about it.
So, I'm talking about it. In this show. Sharing how profound, painful and transformational this experience of losing my person, truly was and continues to be as time passes and I heal more and more...
And how much love (gratitude & connection) I continue to feel.
Love & Thanks.
When's the last time you heard someone say (or said yourself), we need LESS stories about LOVE & CONNECTION, joy & transformation??
