Wisdom Wednesday #62 – Say Something

When I was headed home to my month of writing almost two years ago, I had a fair well coffee with a new friend.

Many time we speak out of our discomfort of silence, but in this case their were words that wanted…

Wisdom Wednesday #60 – Dance Monkey’s Dance

I took a few performance study classes when in I was in college. In my advance performance class the texts that we performed were longer and had more depth.
