Last night's Selected Shorts event was amazing. Extraordinary. Magic.
Marin Ireland, the actress who read (and it seems to wrong to say read, because she did so much more - performed? illuminated?) "A Life in Fictions" was utterly perfect. What she did was make the story on stage sound like the one in my head. It was a kind of magic. I am so impressed by her talent. (Another particularly brilliant kind of magic happened during the reading of Neil Gaiman's "The Thing About Cassandra." Subscribe to the Selected Shorts podcast now, because you are not going to want to miss hearing that. Wow.)
And I met so many wonderful people, who were kind enough to say hello to me, and to offer kind words about my story. If that was you, thank you.
My Mom was there, and it was such a thrill to get to introduce her to some of the people I love, and for her to be able to see something I was so honored to be a part of.
