Ease My Teabags...
The Loose Women show was better than I could have ever thought. There were pieces that were absolutely bring the house down funny, and pieces that made me sob. The audience was full of most of my best friends and family members in the universe, who converged upon the town, resulting in one hell of an emotionally overwhelming experience. I love each and every one of you and cannot believe we finally all got together and got to spend so much precious time discussing love, life, art and tea bags. My goodness.
Open Channels. Every single one of us were just drinking in the circle of incredible faces, some of which we had not seen for 5 years. If I could have whisked us all away to an island, I would have. There would be a few more of you out there to grab, of course, but it was a Cavalcade of Enchantment the likes of which the world may never know again. Except that we decided to all get together once a year and do a show. Unbelievably, we pulled the location from a hat, and it looks like next year we are going to The City of Light. How appropriate and frightening and inspiring and gigantic.
Other things that happened: My Sam met my brother and it was a lovely thing to witness. My dad's car was vandalized outside the show. There were mishaps and tragedies and collisions on multiple levels. The sunsets were breathtaking. There was a 5 minute hailstorm when I arrived. I saw people I did not expect to see in the Ghetto Smiths, which always happens. I ate lots of green chile. The show got a pretty horrible review, which is unfortunate because the ladies all worked so hard and I truly believe the show was quite game, and has much promise. Hopefully the cast will not let the opinion of one man stand in the way of thier good time- which was the whole point of the show to begin with. I met a glass blower and his jeweler wife in Madrid, who showed us such hospitality we stayed all day, playing with their impossibly cute dogs. And I met an amazing 63 year old lady on the plane today and we talked non-stop all the way to LA and are determined to visit each other as soon as possible.
Other things happened, surely, and it all just So Much I can't decipher it all. I will show photographic evidence soon- after a long, much needed nap. Viva la Teabags!
