It’s not often that I wake up to write. Often being never.
But today is different.
A few years ago I had heard of this amazing idea of getting women together to listen to their words.
Words written on Motherhood.
Last year, I watched the video’s that were posted on the few cities that it was in.
I laughed, cried, and most importantly- was inspired.
I’ve been a stay at home mom for 9 years. Through these years I’ve worn many hats.
I’ve conquered laundry mountain. Ok, only once but it was rough I tell you.
I’ve landscaped the land with precision.
I’ve played contractor to the many, many projects I have started.
The one constant through all of that has been motherhood.
When I heard that the Listen to your mother production was coming to Chicago, I knew I was going to audition for it.
I had to.
I knew that there were going to be a range of pieces from humor to dramatic.
I’m not really “known” for my dramatic writing. Something about having feelings or something.
I put together something that was me. And when the day came? I was nervous. NERVOUS people.
If you know me, I’m not exactly a nervous person.
I took this as an indication of how much I wanted this.
Sometimes nervous lets you know you’re doing something different. You’re going beyond the boundaries. You’re doing something great.
So I auditioned.
And they picked me along with some really great writers.
I am truly honored to be part of this.
I hope you will come see me.
