I had a beautiful experience doing writing to heal last night with a group of courageous and wonderful people. Now it’s on to storytelling on December 6… Six of us on the same theme, “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” for 10 minutes: Fran Dorf, Tom Finn, Josh Kaplan, Chad Kinsman, Hugh Samuels, Rebecca Toon plus 3 brave volunteers. While my story is on its face about a car crash a few years, what it’s really about surviving all my “tsuris.” All my stories are about that. Join me.

And for this one on December 11th, I’m getting back on stage to read a few bits from my memoir: “How I Lost My Bellybutton and Other Naked Survival Stories.” Also, of course, about surviving “tsuris.” Can’t help it. I’m the “tsuris” queen. Thinking about reading a relatively serious bit about breast cancer called “Plastic Man,” and a lighter bit about my Grandma Rose, she of the vast bosom and orthopedic shoes. I don’t know….is a bar the best place to read this? Well, whatever. It seems Ina has adopted me.
