A little over two years ago, I told a story from the summer I wrote The Oat Project for a program here in Colorado Springs called The Story Project. Like The Moth Radio Hour out of New York City, it’s live, local storytelling without a script. Tonight, on this Mother’s Day weekend, I’m going to tell another story, of my mom’s last lessons and gifts. There are two performances, May 9th and May 25th.
Getting this story out has been so. very. difficult. I will probably cry on stage. But if I can do this, can stand at a pulpit in front of almost 300 people to give my mom’s eulogy, then tonight will be fine. I’d love to see you all there. Please wish me luck. And love and kindness and joy to you all for Mother’s Day. Please hug your mothers extra for me. 🙂
Here’s that story from 2012: http://youtu.be/BAGlFpbnwHc
