    Today we start the @24thst #BookClub - read a chapter of a book as a team & discuss what the organization can use from it to improve our work. I’m leading discussion today on Invitation to the Party , a chapter on how @publictheaterny fulfilled George Wolfe’s directive to make the lobby of the Public look like the streets of New York .
I chose this chapter because 24th ST already accomplishes some of these goals (obviously replacing New York with Los Angeles) but we can learn how to mend some gaps through Donna Walker-Kuhne’s experience. (at 24th Street Theatre)

    Sometimes life imitates art. In the Firefly episode “Safe,” Simon searches for his sister through foliage and follows the faint sound of music. Today Sadie, Malcolm & I wandered and followed a slight sound of music until we came upon 2 gents alone and playing some form of bluegrass or music of their own making. #peace #latergram #ferndell (at Fern Dell)

    Malcolm isn’t as excited about this as I am, so I thought I’d share: I made my 1st smoothie! Blueberry banana w/ coconut milk. I think that earns me a SoCal transplant badge or something.

    I feel a jarring peace in seeing my son sleep well by the window inside the room that used to burst with memories. This attic bedroom, now my sister’s craft studio, witnessed years of pre-teen & teenage pain, confusion, fumbling horrible sex, great sex, fights, chicken-scratched poetry, outfits creating a combination of the person I felt like that day and wanted to be to the outside world. 
I wake up today to my son a little confused about where he is, soothed as soon as I sing “Once Upon a Dream” and pick him up. I nurse this 14 lb bundle of potential in a corner bed where only seven months ago a pregnant me felt uncomfortable, too old to be sleeping in the same room where Smashing Pumpkins and Suzanne Vega would sing my teenager self to bed.
I lay him down for an early morning nap before a week of meeting new family, and I stare out the window that captures how I always felt growing up: 
A perfectly fine dead end street. 
A horizon of possibility in the distance.
A wide open sunrisen sky.
I’ve never felt as comfortable being in the house where I grew up as now, sharing my history and #family with my 14.5 week old son.
