  1. Winning

    Tuesday, February 11, 2014

     
    In terms of money and things, I barely get by. In other ways, I sometimes consider myself rich. Lately, the universe seems to be saying you are being noticed. I like the feeling. I have been trying very consciously not to step in my own way of goodness. 
      In January, I took a class at a discounted price because I was a runner-up in a raffle run by acting teacher Jagger Kaye. After that, I won two tickets to a play that I look forward to seeing with a friend. She and I are planning to see it on a Sunday in March. 
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Then just this past Saturday night, I was at a 10-year anniversary celebration of the Starving Artist Café on City Island in the Bronx. 
      
    There was live music by Elliot Glick and others, champagne, a packed house, and they gave out free raffle tickets. Mine won a free dinner for two to be used any evening except Valentine's and New Year's. I like being there very much, so a free dinner for two removes an obstacle from going on some low-fund night. 
     

    I want to keep on attracting goodness in 2014.  I do believe we have the power to keep the positive energy flowing. 

    I have now been given the opportunity to offer my readers a chance at winning a pair of tickets to a play where the tickets normally cost 70 bucks each.  It is a one-woman show by singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke.  When discussing the show, Jonatha says "My Mother Has 4 Noses is my story, but it's everyone's story. I don't know anyone who isn't living some part of it themselves. It's a love story too, with all the attendant comedy and tragedy. And Mom would have insisted that I tell it.”

    So how can you win this pair of tickets, you might be wondering.  It's simple.  You just have to post something on some social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) that invites and encourages a new reader to visit my blog regularly on Tuesdays at www.SheSoFunny.org.  You might want to say how it is what you look forward to on Tuesdays or something that is true for you.  Keep it real since the best writing comes from that place.  I don't want it to read like an ad as much as I want it to read as the truth.  Once you do that, copy and paste it (showing where you posted it) as a comment below this blog entry, or, since some folks have trouble leaving comments here, send it to me at mindyinthebronx@gmail.com.  I will post the winning entry.  If there is a situation where I can't pick one because several are fantastic, I will call in a guest judge who does not want to see a play (yeah, I do know such people who have trouble sitting still).

    How many people do you know who can say they have 4 noses? Jonatha's mom did have 4 noses, at least as
    many names, and an indomitable sense of humor. She was a published poet, a clown, a Christian Scientist, and
    she had Alzheimer's. In their final two years together, Jonatha and her mother would mine the daily goings-
    on for theatre. "Boolie (Jonatha's nickname), are you getting this down? We should make a play out of it!" My
    Mother Has 4 Noses is the result. In this powerful musical, acclaimed singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke tells a
    very unusual mother-daughter love story. When discussing the show, Jonatha’s says "My Mother Has 4 Noses
    is my story, but it's everyone's story. I don't know anyone who isn't living some part of it themselves. It's a love
    story too, with all the attendant comedy and tragedy. And Mom would have insisted that I tell it.”
