Some things that are inspiring me...
My favorite poet. Mary Oliver knows the magic that the world holds. She reminds me to pay attention, be astonished, and tell about it.
Alice in Wonderland
My favorite book of all time. "It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."
Ben Houghton and Katy Pfaffl's concert series to raise money to keep a teacher on the ground at Shanti Bhavan year-round has turned into a full-fledged mission to bring arts education to underserved youth all around the world. I have loved getting to be involved in helping this beautiful program.
Mari Andrew is a beautiful artist who speaks right to the heart. I always come back to this drawing of hers.
A friend and someone I look up to & a Broadway Star with a voice of gold. She was my big sister in Yiddish Fiddler. She teaches me gratitude & trust.
Come from Away
I adored this show from start to finish. Such an incredible group of grounded storytellers, and such a meaningful experience.
My teacher and mentor & a Broadway legend. She teaches me how to find wonder in a song & in the world too.
Her powerful novels are both insightful and moving. She challenges me to find strength in vulnerability, and show up wholeheartedly.
The Guest House
Rumi always lifts my spirit. This is one of my favorite poems. It tells me that all feelings are valid & important, and we are always right where we need to be.
