  1. Listen To Your Mother

    Tuesday, March 28, 2023


    People, I feel so fortunate in some ways.  I’ve had enough creative projects going on recently (and it’s not over) to have me busy with work I want to do.  I don’t want to be misunderstood – my decades of teaching adults were frequent opportunities to be creative.  My students and I, for the most part, had a real good and growing time.  But recently, I’ve been engaged with other creative work – memoir writing, poetry writing, giving readings, producing and performing stand-up comedy, an upcoming off-off Broadway production of Listen to Your Mother in which I’m cast. 


    Each event is its own kind of wonderful.  A few actually pay money.  Yahoo.  It’s so needed.


    Art In The Basin booked me to read a half hour of whatever I wanted.  I shared short autobiographical stories.  I had a great time.  The hosts were soooo welcoming, the audience so attentive, the venue (Mon Amour Coffee & Wine) so accommodating. 

    There was a hybrid open mic.  My buddy drove me there and attended though he was so very exhausted.  We are chosen ‘siblings’ for over 40 years. We go out of our way for each other.


    I had a very encouraging experience doing stand-up (the art I find most challenging) at the International Women Artists’ Salon’s event.  It feels so wonderful when the audience is with me from the beginning.  It feels easy from there, but when that doesn’t happen … 

    Also, I was able to sell some shirts at that event!


    This Saturday, April 1st at 3pm and at 7pm (and an option to livestream the 7pm show), I’m part of this unique production. Still some tickets available!  Listen to Your Mother




    Much love always to CGG-M  ❤💕❤
