I’ve told you over these past few weeks that I’ve got something working that I couldn’t tell you about yet, that things were falling into place in such a way that my horizon was full of excitement and joy and creativity and hope. Throw in a huge dose of fear and nerves and a few of the voices screaming “ARE YOU KIDDING? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TO DO THAT?” while they stamp their feet and set things on fire…but today has come.
I can finally tell you what’s up.
My application to produce and direct a Listen To Your Mother Show in Oklahoma City has been
I’ve known for a few weeks. So I’ve been waking up at 2am working on details in my head.
I’m smart enough to have already built a team that will be so successful, we’re going to make it look easy. Julie Bohannon is my co-director/co-producer here locally. Heather Smith Davis aka http://www.minivanmama.com is my co-producer in Bartlesville. We three bring a set of tools to the table that will not only compliment each other, but a commitment to the project that will transcend the work behind the scenes.
I’ve got a lot of details to work out. This is going to be an adventure like no other. But I am profoundly changed by my personal experince in the Northwest Arkansas show this spring. The validation of having my story complimented from a stranger in the audience, “your story is my story”…I want to share that feeling with my city.
The stories are out there. And they are necessary. The telling of them is necessary.
I am honored with the charge to bring them to the 405.
I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, I ask that you share this information with EVERYONE. Repost, link to your social network, tell your friends.
Because something magical is heading our way, and we don’t want anyone to miss out!.
