The other day somebody sent me an article titled, “The 17 Most Magical Places on Earth.” Can you believe they left off Fresh Ground Stories at the Roy Street Cafe last Thursday night? Unbelievable! That show was absolutely magical. I know it went longer than usual but there were so many people in the audience who practiced their stories all month that I wanted to give them a chance to shine. And they did. Everyone did. Thank you all for coming out and making this such a great show.
And special thanks to everyone who got onstage: Norm, Paul B, Danielle, Veronica, Alyssa, Danny, Ryan, David, Thomas, Efrain, Scot, John, Kika, Jill, Jake and Cat. Most especially Cat who started the show almost four years ago and allowed me to keep it running when she had to move away.
I wanted to write a paragraph about each story I loved but it would have taken more words than Meetup allows me. Trust me. I had it half written when I realized I wasn’t going to make the limit. So just know that I’m still thinking a lot about what I heard that night and I’m grateful for everyone who found the courage to get up there and open their lives to a room full of strangers.
The recorder did its job so if you want a copy of your story send me an email and I’ll get it out to you in a day or two.
Next month’s theme is Bouncing Back. I’ll get the official invite out later this weekend. Hope to see you all there on May 22.
