Back in October I had the great fortune to work with Eleanor O'Brien; a fantastic Portland actress and artist.  I came on board to help create a whimiscal piece of theatre for a local fundraising event.  It was a terrific experience, because not only did I get to work with Eleanor, the entire cast of seven other beautiful woman were delightful to work with as well.

Last night, the piece we originally created for the October fund-raiser was featured again at ScratchPDX. Scratch is an experimental performance space for acts of all kinds to try out their stuff in front of a lively and friendly audience.  Anything and everything including spoken word, performance art, improv, play readings and dance can be featured here.  The warm and welcoming people that host and volunteer for this event made the evening infinitely enjoyable.  There was such a strong sense of community sitting amongst the audience and it was so fun to be a part of this amusing and entertaining evening of theatre.

If you are in the Portland area, I strongly encourage you to check out ScratchPDX.  It runs the second Saturday of every month from October through May at Hipbone Studios. You never know what you might see and experience.  I'm hoping to have some additional work featured in the upcoming months...I'll keep you posted!

Hope everyone is enjoying December.  It's mighty cold up here in Portland, but my heart is full and warm.

So great to have your supportive self in the audience. And just lovely lovely to spend some time with you around the fire in the garden afterwords. You are such good company.

Scratch PDX sounds like a fascinating and fun venue. I checked out the web site, and I am intrigued by "an emergency meeting of the apostles right after the crucifixion" and "Maybe It's Better Down Where It's Wetter."

If I am in Portland some day (and I hope to be there one day, to visit you), maybe I can come to Scratch PDX and perform my poem about training cockroaches. It's a dark piece about the Vietnam War, written about 40 years ago. I wonder if it will fit in.
