Thunderstorms in Columbia, MO this morning — it’s s gorgeous to be in the midwest in the spring!
Today we’re off to Minneapolis for our show up there, then tomorrow we head back down to Columbia for a postponed/rescheduled show here! The weather goddess conspired against us on Sunday: snow in Vail meant a slower start than we needed to comfortably make the originally-scheduled performance in Columbia, so we’ll be coming back here for an earlier gig on Wednesday.
Please send your good, healing thoughts to Kathleen, who is having to rest and sleep to recover from some sick!! Kathleen says to call this “The Sick C*ck Tour.”
Unfortunately, we *won’t* be going to Milwaukee — we hadn’t heard that anyone had registered for our workshop there, and had to make the difficult decision to cancel that show! I really hope we can make it back there for the next tour!
Things I want to remember to say:
– there are cardinals in Missouri! I haven’t heard them in years, and nearly cried when their strong song pealed through me yesterday at the Uprise Cafe (attached to the Rag Tag Theater, & a wonderful place for a femme on tour to sit outside & write).
– Interstate-quick meetings with fathers can be good for the soul.
– SO SO SO many thanks to: Meliza Benales, who BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN in SF; Lorelei Lee, our amazing SF show opener; and the gorgeous Miss Amelia Paradise, who strip-teased us up to the highest heights at the midpoint of the SF show.
– We miss Celestina! Veronica brought her energy, her piece, to San Diego, & she’s coming to Minnesota the same way…
I miss F!, & I miss home, and I’m more excited about this trip than I can say. :)
love love love –
