Notes to self...and you...

Wow. really? Since March. Ouch. Note to self. Must blog more.

So, I wrote a play! It's called, No Place Called Home and is about an American woman's (me) trip through the Iraqi refugees crisis where she meets literally hundreds of refugees and accidentally falls in love with one of them (still me). The play is currently in development for a fall run. More info can be found on my website.....join my email list to be kept up to date on production dates, etc. More info on the crisis can be found here:

Also, the KSI house team Hi-Robot has a show on June 26 at a Turkish Rug huh? Come sit on rugs, drink tea and laugh. More info on Hi-Robot's Facebook page:!/pages/Hi-Robot/117064208304456

Also, Under The Street Improv, my all improv monthly show, is on hiatus until fall. Happy summer!

Also, I was reminded today through coaching a student that SPEAKING YOUR TRUTH usually clears the muck and makes things less awkward, and can be pretty dang life-transformative ...just something to ponder.

Also, must blog more.

Green bag promo tape

Environmental video starring Kim and some unknown girl behind her...

Today... big. Take up more space and air than you usually do. Breathe deeper, look wider, stand taller. You deserve it.

Where do you live?

In a recent one on one coaching session, I told my student that I was looking for ways for her to live outside her normal living space through improv training. Meaning, improv teaches us to surprise ourselves and act and be in a place that we do not normally operate from. It opens up new arenas to explore. It may not be forever, perhaps even only for a moment, but it gives us a taste of what is possible and then---we can make a choice. We can make a choice to try to live there more because it feels good, or is rewarding ---or we can make a choice to go back to the way things were. Either is fine. To me, what isn't fine is living a certain way without even knowing another way is possible, or worse yet, knowing but being too afraid to explore it.

In good scenework, we are consistently pushed out of our comfort zone, out of our "norm". If we are truly listening, reacting and playing, we should constantly surprise ourselves, be constantly discovering new places to "live". That's why I love improv. That and all the laughs.

In class recently, I reminded my students that they could reivent themselves. They were in the middle of a longform and it had started falling apart abit. they were getting off track and getting a bit down on it. I shouted 'Reinvent the moment! Reclaim whats happening right now'.

They looked at me like I was a nut at first, then...the improv got more free and a bit more fun....

How often in life have we already decided how something is gonna go? We already know the outcome before we even go through the moment. "Today's gonna suck", 'There's no way of making this better!", "Nothing will change. This is how it is." ----Is it? Is this how it is? Or is it only how it is right now?

We each have the opportunity to reinvent ourselves every moment of our lives. You decide how each moment is going to play out. Take charge. Reinvent. Reclaim the moment.

Did you miss it? Don't worry -- here's another! Unlimited opportunities for reinvention.
