Kinky Boots!


Recently, I went to this show. I was eager to see it, but not sure what to expect. Would I be let down? Disappointed?

Not a chance. Kinky Boots is based loosely on a true story, or so say the PR folks. True or not, this is a can-do, be yourself tale about accepting who you are and changing the world, just a little.

This is a feel-good musical–toe-tapping music, terrific dancing, a story that made me laugh and now and then, shed a tear.  The tremendous enthusiasm and energy from a talented cast was contagious, and I came away smiling.

You can’t ask for more than that. If you ever get a chance to see it, do. 🙂

Until Friday, and wishing you unexpected energy and happiness,

Let’s All Go to the… Story?

I happen to enjoy movies, TV shows, plays, musicals–just about anything watchable.

But books….

A book can take me where no visual entertainment can, delving deep into a character’s pysche. Finding out what makes them tick, what they’re afraid of and what they truly desire… That’s what I want.

I have a confession, though. As a writer myself, I can’t help but read with a critical eye to how I’d improve on the story had I written it. That said, a truly good book, one in which I am captivated and engrossed, soon takes me beyond any kind of critiquing. I love that, love when I lose myself in a story. Visualizing the characters, feeling what they feel, and often wishing they knew what I knew so that they’d make more informed choices, finding out what happens next and next and next until the story ends–it doesn’t get better than that.


All this talk about books has revved me up. I think I’ll go outside, find a shady tree, sit down and read.

Until Wednesday, and wishing you a book that carries you away,
