1. Mantra because it's August and August is hard.

Make me available for work.To the witches and the wolves, the stardust, and the gods, the universe at large. This is how I start my day. Make me available for work. As a mother, partner, artist, author, activist, friend. Make me available for work. On the days when it all feels like too much and I don't feel so useful. Make me available for work. To be grateful to those who have created opportunity for me and so that I can hold that space open for others. Make me available for work. To family, blood and chosen, let's continue to lift each other up so we can be available for work. There is much to be done. And I love that. And I love you.

2. Thinking a lot about storytelling and how it differs from reading the written word. One is a performance and there is a lot of collaboration that goes on with an audience. Wondering what this project would sound like aloud.

3. Practice is for the patient. And practice is how things seems to suddenly become easy. Practice is the countless hours spent on something that looks and feels like magic. There is little magic. Just practice.
