10 Things That Are Already Great About the Original Women Festival

Even if Brooklyn melted into the sea before Friday there are already great things about this project and I want to commemorate them.

1. Working with Mark again, it's been too long. I've been working with him on and off in one way or another for over 15 years and the value of working with someone that long cannot be underestimated.

2. Mimi and Jennica just leapt on board with passion and commitment which made me feel wonderful.

3. Being able to perform again, finally.

4. Learning that my producing muscles are just weak, not gone.

5. I walked up to a local cafe and just knocked on the door and asked for the loan of a table, the sort of thing I never do and sort of hate doing but I didn't mind this so much and then I followed up with a phone call today and the owner said yes. I'm proud of myself for doing it and am so relieved by the whole interaction.

6. Working with Pony Express again. 20+ year collaboration. 'Nuff said.

7. Doing a piece where I use my words and one where I don't use any words all in one evening, I don't think I've ever done that before.

8. Feeling part of the BAX family again.

9. The way that my friends have not only offered to help but offered and offered again as time has gone by, knowing that things come up in a process like that and that it's hard to ask for help multiple times. I'm intensely lucky in the people I hang out with.

10. Using the work I love to raise money for a cause I believe in is reaching a new level for me. I might be growing and changing after all.
