Day 19... #NaPoWriMo.... "I didn't know..."

. I didn’t know it was there till I turned around deep impressions in soft flesh  a silent scream.. a fall to the ground a few swear words launched skywards a limp.. a lump.. a bloody scrape jarring my happiness marring my body-scape souvenirs in purple…

I have been a part of Improv A Go Go several times... and I hope to be again.  Happy Birthday!
 
The Improv A Go Go turns 12 on May 18th
The show began on a handshake agreement with John Sweeney after a pitch by Larry Pontius and myself to the Brave New Workshop  - allowing us use of the Palace Theater in St Paul on Sunday nights for "as long as people keep coming to see it"

When this show started:
My oldest child was 10, the other two didn't exist
Spider Man, My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Attack of the Clones had just opened.
Just like Facebook didn't exist
The Olympics were just held in Utah
The US had just invaded Afghanistan
Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother had just passed away
Robert Hanssen had just been sentenced to life in prison
The Beltway Sniper(s) had yet to begin shooting people
and the coolest technology in a while looked like this:

A chance to perform improv on a stage in St Paul where you might make enough money to get some pancakes at Mickey's Diner afterward, that was enough to get really excited about.

This show is where so many things started for me and it can be hard sometimes to have to fight to keep it relevant against all the other things we've built along the way - but it's still one of my favorite things in the world because people are still coming to see it.

Darkness, like a deep lake calls with relentless waves upon my shadowed shoreline... I am watching the moon its reflection scattered tossed across the rippled surface Glimmers of hope dancing never...

Naps are a vital part of staying healthy... When I don't get to nap... everyone around me finds their health is in danger...

Is there a deduction for floating?

Here's hoping you all have finished your tax returns long ago...

+Larry Barton ours is relatively stable after a couple of years, but it's been on the refund side even still.  My salary hasn't changed much, and my photography earnings are about the same - and expenditures haven't change much either.  So, an easy estimation.  Doesn't work for everyone though (and I may bump my withholding this year just to give a better cushion against the photography side - just in case I actually make a bunch of sales lol)

Work
Occupation
Artist... writer... parent... one who struggles through life and tries not to complain to much...
Skills
The ability to be creative with whatever is at hand. To laugh when I want to cry and to keep on walking when my feet hurt.
Employment
  • Ozmorrhiza Arts Studio
    present
    I create improvisational art; drawings, sculptures, paintings, photographs and performance. I write poetry for those who wish to hear my thoughts. I write fiction for those who want to hear my stories. Occasionally I may make sounds that could be considered music, and move my body through space in a dance like way. The rest of the time, I am helping others to solve creative conundrums and placing myself in service to the community.

Introduction
Artist working in improvisational art... photography, drawing, words and more....

..... ask me what I do... and it may change from day to day, but I am always seeking to share what is in my head or heart at any given moment. 

Bragging rights?.... well, I'm still alive......... .......................................................................Oh, and I once jumped off the tallest mountain in Europe with an irate Frenchwoman on my back...

Occupation?.... Yes, I'm definitely occupied! 
I make art... I tell stories... I create a world for my children to inhabit...  I laugh as much as possible. 

I'm involved in many rotating projects... I am working on my first novel... may the PTB have mercy on my literary soul....
