      Oh Miss Dawny, HOW I wish you were local so you could come to the show. Of all the people in all the world, I have a feeling you would MOST like my sense of humor. I’m excited that last night’s last comedy class practice went well and I managed to keep my jokes in my head. I think it will be fun – even if it IS terrifying. You were one of the people I was thinking about when I was pondering on potential vs. courage. You have courage in spades, so if you ever feel discouraged, maybe it will help you too. I’ve decided I HATE potential, the bastard. It’s such a lie. We all have potential to do all kinds of things so it is a false, false, measure. Courage can always be chosen, and we are our own measuring stick. Courage to stay on an eating plan, courage to have a bite off of plan when other things are more important, courage to look in our hearts about what’s really important to us. This focus is the only way I’m living through comedy class. It literally makes me barf from nerves – and I’m not scared of public speaking – it’s just really hard to write and then remember revised jokes in a pressure cooker. Good news is it makes voice work from the safety of a sound booth into a piece of cake. Looking forward to some holiday fun next show, so would love to get some Dawnyisms for the holidays. xoxoxoxox
