The Vagina Monologue performances...

The Vagina monologues... what an experience!! It was such a cool project to be part of. Some things that surprised/thrilled me...
~~the great women involved in it.
~~how GOOD everyone was. It was intimidating at first during rehearsals, I was so worried that I would totally be the weak link. So no one has TOLD me I was, anyway!!
~~Lydia's amazing last minute performance under strange circumstances of "Coochie Snorcher".
~~That I didn't throw up before going on stage.
~~That I didn't throw up on stage.
~~What a powerful message of hope, and hopefully raised awareness of some important issues for us all.
~~How wonderful it was that so many of my absolutely most important people were there to watch, laugh, be supportive, support the cause. I am blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.

You were fabulous! I, too, was blown away by Lydia's ability to do that piece with almost no notice. I couldn't have done it in a million years -- my nerves were already shot. She was brilliant, too.

My sister said that as she sat and watched it with her dad, she was feeling very uncomfortable and thinking, "This is awkward." She said she then relaxed when she thought, "This IS my family -- awkward."

You were great and looked amazing with your new 'do!

I wouldn't have missed it.
