Thanks to Moving Parts and Stef Campion for hosting me for the play reading of my very first play. I wrote the first draft in three days. THREE DAYS. I am only saying this because I actually recommend setting seemingly impossible time limits on daunting tasks. It’s like training for the creative brain. I’ve taken […]

Presenting…the CLARA-NOVA Electric Music Video

The Lady Who…Productions is so proud to present a project, a crew, a singer, a song and a city we have fallen in love with all in one place. Such incredibly talented people worked on this – including the main women at the helm. Sydney Wayser‘s vocals and tenacity inspire. Ludovica Isidori as the boss Director […]

Reinvention Land

In any given year, there are things we can control and there are things we can’t. This year, for me, there happened to be a few more things that I couldn’t control than I could which meant that the fine balance between feeling in control and feeling like my entire world – like THE entire […]

See the Test for What It Is & Then, RUN…the Other Way…at Escape Velocity

There comes a moment when we think there’s no turning back. We think we’ve gone too far on the spectrum of adaptation, acceptance, settling. We’ve married the wrong man or woman.

POEM: The Misunderstanding of the Lorelei

Don’t listen to the stories told By men who are scared to walk. Be careful whom you allow into your circle of song. We sing not to kill, just to light you on fire. We sing to open your very heart’s desire. Heart knows the song when it gets close to us. Some listen, some […]

I See You
