Hi Everyone,

I hope you’re all having a great weekend. I just wanted to send you a quick reminder about our show coming up next Thursday in our new location – the Olive Way Starbucks. If you’ve ever wanted to see what I look like when I’m unreasonably nervous and filled with self-doubt you should come to this show 🙂

I’m not a big fan of change. Any change, really. Spare change, loose change, change of heart. Even changing the sheets on my bed seems overwhelming sometimes. Can you imagine the pressure I feel being the change I want to see in the world??

Luckily, Ben The Manager (actual name) is excited to have us and that means a lot. He loves what we’ve done with storytelling in Seattle. He met a lot of cool people (that means you) at our last show and is looking forward to our first show at his place. He promised to stock up on scones so I’m definitely giving away a Scone of Courage that night.

So come out and see our new digs. Figure out what your new favorite seat will be. Watch me as I try to decide where to put the couches and how close to the fireplace we’ll stand.

In the meantime, here’s a great article that just came out in the Seattle Times about the show. I hope the reporter comes back and tells some stories with us 🙂
