Just about six weeks ago I was selected to join a cast of 6 improvisers to write and perform in a one act show. I was in Australia, so it felt quite surreal to me when the cast was finalized. My homework was to create three characters and give them a brief bio with significant […]
I was super fortunate to have the opportunity to interview some super cool folks in order to learn the history of the Planet Ant Theatre. Stop over at Detroit Laughs Louder and learn about this magical, homey space and creative landmark in Hamtramck.
I am always trying to hunt down perfect systems to get my life, my house and my household organized. One area that I had zero control over was our laundry. I am a huge fan of the Flylady and she has always insisted that the best way to tackle laundry is to do at least […]
As a challenge to myself, I volunteered to present my thoughts for an Advent by Candlelight presentation. It was a delightful experience to put my thoughts together and channel my inner priest.

Did you catch it? I know I watched it before but he actually says “I have a birth certificate. I have […]
The emotions from books I am reading can affect my mood. Sometimes a book’s sadness will follow me like my own personal rain cloud. I may not recognize the source of this malaise until I finish the book and the sadness lifts. There is no question the source of my current depression. That the […]
Not my best day when I stop mid project because I can’t reconcile creative differences with a four year old. I feel bad for packing everything up and repeating “That’s it! That’s it! I can’t work with you anymore today.” I do. Especially, now that I’ve had a glass of wine and you have been […]
