"We need to fix this now where that glue comes from what color it is i. I hope it's cold. Maybe it'll be silver. Maybe it'll be bronze. But i really really believe this with my heart and that we're going to be even more beautiful after this. Now you're making me cry. I believe in that. And i think that's the core that i have lived by you know. My entire life teaches for thirty years as a college professor as the driver instruction for young writing. I have seen i have witnessed. How play riding in particular has healed so many people because they have had been given the opportunity to express themselves on the page and to speak into explore the limitations of what we are experiencing today. What's driving core to create and to heal. I love that image. Joan of the pottery that image just represents everything about what we are exploring. How do you mold. That idea. Gary as a playwright. Well you wanna keep it on a very small level actually. I've made one person one person laugh or here to there is. I'm happy simple as that if you just touched the basic human emotions. That's a great start. I have to answer to your question. Random it's a multilayered question like yourself. I used to be an arts educator. In the new york city public schools through henry street settlement leader new city theater for new audience all different organizations and i would go in and see kids who were not being validated. Who they were and do a lot of reasons why and creating theater with them. It really helped them to blossom and be who they were. Voices were honored. That's the first thing that i i feel. That art is really important. You know on the education level for me personally. I had horrible thing happened to me. When i was a kid and i wrote a one woman show about it almost thirteen and i got to perform and i got to write it and it really helped me to to say it's okay. This happened to you. now let's move on. Let's acknowledge it. And i think that happens in plays we again. We hold this mirror up to our audience up to our society and say look. This is going on look at it. Let's discuss it. Let's have a conversation about it. I know all of the plays that i produced with my company equal actors. What we do is we always talk backs. Afterwards we bring in people who who are very expert in the subject that we're we're actually exploring so it's an exploring not only do we explore what the artists involved but we explore our audience. We say look come. Come here hanging out with me here. This story see this story. Live this story. Feel this story and let's talk about it and ultimately what happens. I think it it makes people undestand very deep level. it creates mindfulness. It's like i'm here now. In this moment talking to fran and gary and everybody else yet right but i'm mindful of me being here in the now history is important..
2021 NBA Draft Prospects to Watch: Cade Cunningham
"You've been a lot of your assignment is covering the big twelve So you get that one really up close and i know this year especially it's been a little bit different from you because a lot of those broadcast have to happen from home but you also have gotten on the road and been able to see some guys as well and because you're in the big twelve it means that you've got a very up close. Look at the guy that i think if i'm not sure it's a consensus but it's close to a consensus that he's the number one guy or at least the favourite to be the number one pick in this draft cade cunningham. Tell me your impressions. Early on from cade. Well what. I do every season. Especially because i cover the big twelve so indep elite get around in a preseason. Watch practice chad. I was a little more difficult this year. Honestly because it cova. But i did get up to oklahoma state early spy watch them practice. And and we've also done three cake cunningham games now one in person and so i think i do have a good feel for me. First of all. He's he's a you wouldn't see a unique quiry actually fits the nba more than he does college. Because you don't know when you look at a kids. He's listed at six eight. I would say he's probably six seven to two thousand five great build great size greyfield for the game. I actually think he's going to be as we've said this before about kids it'll be a better. Nba player in many ways. Because the floor is going to be spaced. And he'll be around. I great talent on like at oklahoma state right now where he's the focal point of every single defense and trying to keep him out of the lane. It's to the point where the other night against kansas when they played great oklahoma state. Bill self rarely goes to his own and even more rarely goes to a triangle in two and k gave them so many fits in the first half. Get sixteen at the half bill. Self is both defenses in again so what is right. Now is a playmaking linebacker okay. He's a he's a he's a mansion. I'll obviously that's gonna fit well in the week because of his size. He is a great teammate. To the point really. I had said a number of times this year. He's almost too unselfish. Because when you're that talented on a team that's not that talented. He almost should take over more. But great passer With great vision an innate feel for getting teammates the ball at the right time at the right place. nba teams are going to love this guy. Now that regard his shooting is is certainly not bad at all. The shots not broken. In fact. I think he's gonna end up being a really good shooter in the league. If there's a complaint about him right now. And i heard you john menaced. He's not really an explosive athlete. We think of nba you know high level nba athletes. I almost compare him to the offensive. Version of marcus. Smart in other words. Would marcus brings to a team. Defensively cade brings to the team offensively. He's going to do a lot of things to help you win. I don't know if i would automatically say he's one pickle right now because there's a couple of guys at the top of the draft that i like as much but i think the consensus is correct. If you had a gun to your head today and you're team with the number one pick. He would be very safe. Fit for the reasons. I mentioned one
Warning of possible nationwide attacks as D.C. locks down
"And law enforcement from Washington to Albany across the country will be on high alert for the next week in the lead up to inauguration Day after the attack on the U. S. Capitol. If FBI has warned of armed attacks and all 50 state capitals, former national Homeland Security adviser Fran Townsend spoke to our WCBS reporter Peter Haskell and says last week's assault on the Capitol is now showing this wasn't some ragtag insurgency. This was likely a well organized and well planned event. It's sort of appeared that way from just the images. But when you find two different packages of pipe bombs, one near the RNC and one near the DNC, you understand implicitly. That there had to be component parts gathered. It had to be someone with knowledge. There was they'll be a signature to that bomb. They'll be fingerprints and DNA's. They had to planet travel with it planted there. Ondo. It suggests sort of a wider, better organized event. The other really troubling thing I think we've learned in the Capitol police is undertaken an investigation as his congress is that there were individuals in the Capitol police Who either participated or aided those who were involved in the insurrection to have been charged. There's been a number almost a dozen have been suspended as part of this investigation. And so I think those are the key facts that we've learned on bears more right that will have to uncover to understand really what's going on. When you talk about the planning and the organization. What does that tell us about the risk going forward? So I think people now will take quite seriously the threat both against the inauguration, and the calls were protests in all 50 state capitals. Um, we've seen the FBI put out a bulletin warning about this threat. I know that the FBI through their joint terrorism task forces and DHS, through their local representatives are working with state and local authorities. Um, to be sure that they're prepared and have whatever intelligence the federal government him. Extremism is new with have Thies force his screaming and social media purees places for years. What do you think it was that unleashed this mob? So, look, I think that the president there's direct responsibility here, you know, often hear the phrase a dog whistle while the president was on Twitter calling for his supporters to come to Washington. For a rally that he would participate in. He incited them when they were there. Told them tow walk up to the kids to go to the capital. And so, look, I think that the president has to bear some responsibility here. For more on the conversation with Fran Townsend on protecting the capital and extremism.

How to be Brilliantly Resilient After Life's Sucker Punches with Mary Fran Bontempo and Kristin Smedley
"We're talking about how to be brilliantly resilient after life's sucker punches and we've all gotten psycho punches over the years fire nation and. Let's start with kristen. Where specifically did brilliantly resilient first of all your brilliantly resilient. It's it's when like you said john you get hit with a sucker punch and brilliant. Resilient people will be stunned maybe even knocked down ouch with. They're not knocked out. And mary. Fran and i have been sucker punched over and over again in life and then we came together by well you might say by accident but we know that the universe kind of aligns things for us right and when we started talking we realize that both of us had gotten knockdown not knocked out and we each had things that we did that were similar or exactly the same to reset our mindset in our lives rise with some really special parts of the formula and then the key we found that our skills and talents our brilliance. If you will just charted us on this whole new trajectory that we did incredible things because of those sucker punches it was pretty extraordinary and fire nation. And what that. I've really been diving into a lot recently. Stoicism and know the whole philosophy behind. That is doing what you can where you are with what you have. Because listen if we're going to dwell in the past and we're gonna look at our past sucker punches in just like let that dictator future than what kind of future do we have. Yes is a great to learn from our past mistakes past cycle punches absolutely to maybe adjust pivots going forward in the future but at the same time. It's like let's be here and the now and let's be brilliantly resilient after the sucker punches any positive way going forward and i love what you to have done together is. You've taken brilliantly. Resilient in you've broken out into three very specific parts which are reset rise in reveal your brilliance and i really wanna go through these three parts right now in a very chronological way. So mary fran. Why don't you start us off by talking about reset so the reset is this part. Where you kind of find yourself. Suddenly laying on the ground looking up at the sky going. What the heck just happened. The reset is what happens. When you get this sucker punch whatever it may be. It can be personal. It can be professional. You know we don't we. Don't judge over here. It can just be kind of being pecked to death by the little things of life you know so whatever you are sucker punch or train wreck would be. That's the part where you get to reset. And that is the part where you're inherent in this key. Inherent resilience comes in. You know we hear so much about resilience these days and everybody thinks it's this kind of nebulous thing that's out there that they don't have it's in you. You were born with it so when we talk about the reset it is resetting with resilience that you already have you know when you were you. Were a kid you you you learn to walk by continually failing but you didn't name it that at the time so you know it's there it's something that we can immediately rely on and with the reset. We have a couple of things that we talk about. We talk about a value system which is hugely important. We talk about your perspective and we talk about controlling the controllables but the values pieces the one that i think we wanna focus on right now right k. Yeah yeah. I'll actually if i can give a quick story with my own Sucker punch i was. I headed fully planned my life out of listeners out there that are chuck in those boxes every day and you get a real thrill from that and i got hit with my first. Two babies were born blind. That was nowhere in my preparation. But what i learned is it was the my perception blindness was the block in our life not blindness itself. If you can imagine it was how i was looking at it in terms of devastation of settlement fear and when i changed my perception then my boys and i and my cited daughter started on a trajectory of allowing them to achieve greatness. They were destined for but what happened to me personally in my own work and business and launching a nonprofit in the meeting with mary fran and doing brilliantly. Resilient is there. Were some core values in in how i live my life that once i aligned my parenting my business my nonprofit to those core values then the exponential success started any new core. Values are actually so important for you to establish which. I never would have thought this before. I really sat and studied it but it is so important that there was actually an episode of e o fire in december that was dedicated to core values. That they are that important. And i think mary has a few more things to add on on values. Yeah i mean one of the things. That i think is so profound. Is that these giant sucker punches. They knock you for such a loop that it takes so much away from you. It takes away your plans. It takes away your goals. It takes away your purpose but it takes away your identity. You know you define yourself in a certain way and then something happens. I found out on mother's day of twenty ten that my son was a heroin addict. I mean up to that point. I had an idea of who i was and where i fit in the world and where i was going to go in that moment all of that disappears but when you dig deep in those moments and when you're flat on your back that's when you get to do it you dig deep and figure out what your core values are. That's the beginning of your foundation for every rise. That comes after that. So there's a lot of powerful things. These leisure shared fire nation. I mean one thing that i really honed in on for any number of reasons is the phrase that mary fran used which is controlling the controllables and to me. That's actually very comforting phrase. Because listen things are outside of our control. I mean what are we really going to be stressing out about. I mean let's be honest. Chris and didn't have within her control. What happens when her children were born blind. But what does she then shift to after that. Initial you know struggle and shock while she shifted to controlling the controllables now. She has a nonprofit now. She's moving forward with us now. She has such a better understanding because she just said you know what. I'm going to sit here and this moment. I'm going to control what i can control these controllable variables. So there's a lot to be thought about under this reset section and fire nation. We may be kind of dipping back into these as we proceed forward but the next part is rise so mary fran what do we have with this section in the rise you wanna look at and again as you said j. l. d. all the stuff kind of works together in the rise. You wanna look at what you can actually do. And this is not living in the land of magical thinking here this. Is you know what we want. And and what we can do are often very different things but the things that help you figure out what you can do. The rise is all about the action step but the things that go into that are what are your resources. What is your skillset. And the big one for us is who is in your tribe and you know very often when we think of our tribe we think of what christian calls the ride or die folks. You know the ones who are with you your first level contacts. Who are your biggest cheerleaders and while those are the people that you definitely need in your tribe. They are not always the ones who are going to help you rise. Because they're often the ones who want a stroke your head and say poor baby when sometimes what you really need is a kick in the butt or somebody who's got a better or a resource that is not within your immediate tribe so we really encourage people to expand that tribe so you can figure out what your action step is gonna because it's all about the action.

Trump demands Congress amend pandemic relief bill, issues controversial pardons
"President Trump has sharply blasted the bipartisan cove in 19 economic relief bill that Congress passed this week. He's demanding changes, including an increase of the $600 stimulus checks to Americans up to $2000. The Cove in relief package is part of a bill that also funds the government through September of next year. And if the bill is vetoed, it would be in a government shutdown. CBS political analyst Leonard Stein horns says there are many implications. This is a stunning turnabout that has the potential of throw Washington into chaos shut down the government. Delay essential aid to American families and businesses and leave renters and unemployed workers with few resource is to cope with their uncertainty, and there's another political twist to this as well. Because if the president follows through on his threat in Congress doesn't come up with an alternative voters in Georgia may take their frustrations out on the two Republican senators running for reelection in what is already a tight race. It is unclear how serious the president's threat he is or whether he would actually veto the bipartisan legislation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded quickly to the president's statement, saying she's ready to push for the $2000 checks. He's now asking for Pelosi posted on her Twitter page. The Democrats would bring the president's request to the House floor for a vote by unanimous consent before the end of this week, Mike DeBonis, congressional reporter with the Washington Post says that could lead to another standoff. There's gonna be a very brief session tomorrow in the House, a Democrat will come in Fran Tastic bill to do the $2000 Jack. We expect a Republican is going to stand up and say, Well, That's not all the president wants. He wants to get rid of other parts of this bill, so they're gonna object and say we got to negotiate this. But you know if that's the case, Democrats Musa a. We're not negotiating more. We'll do We just sign the bill that we already talked about. And move on. But that could just really spark and extended sort of stand off. That could mean among other things, the government shutdown people not getting the benefits they were expecting. And this could last. You know, frankly, all the way till Joe Bynes inaugurated on January 20th. Senate Minority leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York, says he's hopeful the president will not veto the coronavirus package. He says Congress can pass additional funding in a subsequent
Rest Now with Kelly Balarie
"Hey there my sweet sweet fran. Kelly larry welcome to the living room. Hey joanna i'm so happy to be chilling on the couch with you from a distance but out together and i'm really happy to be here today. I'm telling you what we're we're abiding by all the social distancing what is it about two three thousand miles. We're snoopers kaushal distance masks but we are still distance right. Those you're in florida right. We knew i'm actually out carolina now. But i'm still south. You're very south than i'm in montana. So yes but you know what i love most about you is it feels like every time we talk. It just feels like you're right there in the room with me i just. I'm so grateful for your friendship. My friend. I know that. I'm not alone in loving you. Joanna i if we had an audience. Have everybody clapped for joanna. We all love in that includes You're touching currier. You're such her well. I couldn't wait to get you on. Because i'm holding your beautiful new book in my hand. Rest now seven ways to say no set boundaries and sees joy and we. We have been kind of journeying together. You've been holding my hand as i walk through my book project and In here all of a sudden is this gorgeous book that guide just birth through you in so many ways and so it's been fun to have kind of a little bit of a front row seat but what really inspired you to write this book. Rest now you know joanna earlier part of my life Pre-college i was the oldest is six kids and i had this really super over responsible personality where i thought i was mother to everyone and needed to keep my family together and make sure everyone went the right way and just manage everyone's world and so It almost felt like wasn't going to be okay. Unless i was managing it and i actually developed eating disorder because it was trying to be everything to everyone and ultimately i did not know who i was. I didn't even like myself. I lost myself through this whole mentality. That's kind of the intensive rest over time. I found jesus praise god. I was healed eating disorder but the flip side of the coin. I had these time periods. Where i was like going to be with god. I'm just going to sit with him and do nothing. And then i was like okay. Wait a minute this is not rest either. Like i didn't have peace. Like what is this thing all about. you know. So the book about rest now is really a journey into spirit led rest. And it's about connecting to the heart of god right when we think about the vine being connected to the vine abiding through christ it's how to activate that kind of life style on the daily basis and this is my story. I love that. I love that because you the reality is we are people with responsibilities and god has made us like that in fact. He says that he's created us to do good works in yet. Boy it is so easy to live from that place of striving rather than abiding. What what would you say is probably the biggest lesson that you've learned about the rest that god wants to give us you know. I think one of the worst things in life is to be anyone other than who god created you to be and for a large portion of my life. I felt i had to work hard to get things or to be more to show myself. You know a better performer. Were more beautiful or having that perfect house and the beauty of rest. Is it really strips. Back the curtain on a lot of bats striving an in that place of rest as i sit with god and understand his heart. I can see man. He love me. For what i do. He loves me for who. I am in christ and when you can realize how powerfully loved you are in christ and who you are. In christ you begin to uncover the reality and the power and the identity of who you are. There's almost nothing that can stop your full of life your content your keys. That's really the fullness knowing who god created you to be and then you can take that out and love people authentically versus needing something from them like i need. I need you need me. I want you to want me. And you'll that from people and that doesn't feel like law that feels like something operating from another realm but rest is the recovery of self that healing of self through the biblical truths of christ when we invite him in

I know a ton of people are growing as I say that like what like this is like how many delays like how it's like for some people? This is probably feeling unacceptable because they're so excited about the next Gen consoles it came right at a time. You can pick those up orgies period.

They say that the Macy's and Associated Press they say that may see Santa Claus is not going to greeting. Consider its flagship New York store because of the Wrona. This is 160 year long tradition. More than a quarter of a million people go to Macy's just to see Santa, they said. It's gonna be hard to create a safe environment during a pandemic, so because you have to have being tight quarters, and it's like a maze through Santillan and his toy trains, and L since that scene was not going to get the Chicago or San Fran stores, either.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be fully optimized for the Xbox Series X and S
"Halo the masterpiece collection is getting out of positions for xbox series x answers US Allesandro Barbosa at Gamespot with the launch of the xbox Jerry's ex answer is just around the corner Mexico's continually adding to its growing loser exclusives they'll be enhanced for its new consoles Halo. The question will be included to support for one, hundred, twenty, five per second and up to four. K.. It had a collection will receive an update on November seventeenth a week. After the console launch, they'll optimize the entire catalogue of hill classics. The capabilities of the new consoles that means one hundred twenty FBI support in both campaigns and multiplayer as well as four K support and additional split straight out traditions on the. Other although the tweet makes mentioned other capabilities, a series experts of the game. The update will be free, of course, include SMART, delivery program. The game also included an Xbox game pass on console and as well as game PA- XBOX game streaming on android. Brand have you have you partake in? This collection at some point. I haven't it's been on, you know a very long list of twos, but I able to probably won't come anytime soon but I do love Halo and I think it's awesome that they've continued to. You know obviously take their main mainstay franchise in keep it updated. You know when they remastered that content. Great but now In, lieu of being launched with xbox series snl it's going to be nice. Hopefully have this. The lean on an saw that hale marketing we see out there is. Kinda. True. They're they're really on Halo for like showing their new thing like when Was it three sixty backwards compatibility. Only worked with Halo One and two at first and then. And then like. Part of backwards apparently, this time around has been halo, and then again, this this as a smart delivery centerpiece, Halo a lot of sets. It is cool that led. They're like they're going forward. They're going like, Hey, let's do because I time they said like. Sony or Microsoft Says Floor One, hundred, twenty, five pm like. Yeah, sure. Rally that. There are actually gonNA show it like, Hey, this is what you actually do. Need the by two point one, four than cool. I'm glad that like they're doing that was something. Yeah. It's nice to have actually like a legit. You know salad multiplayer experience running hopefully at a consistent hundred and twenty. Frames and for you if you buy that new TV to be able to actually see that because I don't know what other multiplayer games shooters are going to be one twenty hertz at this point I don't know heard of any yet. I'm sure there will be some but I. Don't know that there. Well, showpiece I. Both platforms the fact is is fully optimized. It seems to be saying it will be one hundred twenty frames on both, but only be up to four K. on the series x little. There's like heavy details on this though by the way, the tweet zero, it pretty much just a tweet with some check marks and like wearily somebody else tweeted it like just before the exact same tweet, a couple of minutes beforehand. So myself set the league or something. Yeah, but is it is cool that doing this I don't expect most games. We'll do it in the future. I expect that like maybe some remastered here and there. But like we're not GONNA get one twenty F- on Mike? I would if we get a hundred twenty F- bs on. More. Than Twenty Retail Games I would be shot. In the whole generation. Yes. I don't think that'd be because I think that you're going to see people start the. Co optimize like because I. Feel like we're going back to what got me like a lot of hot water the last time I was on the show just reminded people that like, Hey, if you buy a three hundred dollar machine versus the five hundred dollar one, we'll you might want to be aware that it may not be as powerful as the five hundred dollar one that's always trying to say between the S. and the X. Right and there was just a slew of comments like Fran is an idiot and Get. It my point I, was trying to make was you'll see like this is up to four K.. It's awesome that you're going to see one hundred twenty optimize on an older game. But where I'm going with this I do think you'll see a new games that maybe on the the. Again I'm just speculating I'm not saying S is not capable depending on what they do, but it won't be as capable US how it works. Of course, not of course, I wouldn't people Nydia like. The processor is going to be better, which is the main thing, the frame rates, GonNa depend on and like to be clear what I'm saying like. Twenty Games. I mean like games built for this generation not like games that were from last whipping up right. When you say the process you better you're saying in the s any X, right? Yes both. Share the same process or Family. They do. Yeah. It's a slate under clocking. Yeah. It's just a few. You know point to hurts difference basically right but we're to finish the thought what I was saying is. I do think you will see what's get to the point where coastal lake to see where it's like Oh. Yeah it runs in. I'm just GONNA use the analogy like medium settings on the xbox series x and it'll be a hundred twenty I. think you'll see those opportunities almost certainly on the series x we'll. We see it as often on the S I don't know and I'm not knocking it for that I. do think it's incredible value. It is unbelievable value. I should actually say I've said it many times it's unreal that there's a three hundred hour console that is going to be as powerful. And Slick, as the seems to be. So

Don't you have any friends your own age? It was really funny. I was here first, and they all came in so anyway. Having his friends love what I did certainly gave me a lot of credit.

And I remember the morning of the bike marathon I was with my friend Wendy and a couple of other friends and I said to all of them. You know what I said. I'm not going to finish this, so don't worry about that. I'm going to go as far as I can go maybe about ten miles and then I'm going to drop out the. Don't you worry?

And then when I descended down the last half of the bridge and I could see the finish line Fran. It was the greatest moment of my life I was gonNA. Do it I said Oh my God. I'm doing this I'm doing this. And when I crossed that say this line. It was the most triumphant. Day of my life, because not only did I finish the marathon. It represented finishing and crossing the finish line with cancer. And I remember. My friend said to me. You Know Valerie I.

Our show is about cooking. Our show is about. Italians are show is about family and the importance of family. I miss a off family. Minestrone was always like this. It didn't matter if you were our blood family. If you somebody brought a friend home or whoever and you know it was come sit down. Have some pasta. We're about to sit down to eat. Stay that's just what you did. You didn't turn people away because you they were hungry. Everyone's always hungry doesn't matter so you assume they're hungry and they need to be so you feed them. That's what you do. I'm taking a bite him discussing. I just thought speaking of exactly and and in good faith because the good faces. You're hungry someone will do for you. That's just the way that we grew up. You know. In general parents want the best there is. There went their kids to always be fed have shelter and the arts are certainly not a stable base neck. You don't have that security that some nine to fibers half per se. But in my opinion. I don't even think that nine to find fibers have the security that they think they do anything so. We got a little bit of perspective. I I started going into beauty pageant. Were and my voice of I. Don't resist it away. She wanted you know me to pursue more. Get secure things but at the same time. She's still supported. I says as her children and his people and she wanted us to to follow our dreams and follow a heart so there was like this sort of clash between. Oh No. You shouldn't do in that. You should be doing this. 'cause that's safer but at the same time they were like over brings you joy so it was a little bit about his a little bit about and it kind of grounds us to where we are today with your show. It's it's our crippling of comic light support. Judge to try and get people some happiness and joy some laughter connection into until we can come out of this social coma do and I mean we. As humans have an animal instinct to congregate touching interact lost right now more some more than others because of being living alone versus living with family. You know I live with my sister. The brother John Stairs. That's so Carmelo's complaints all the time about certain physical touch that she don't forget about to get some touch right now. Woman inspect stuck with the sister is a blessing and a curse. Talia this show to be away for people to have some comic relief make them laugh right. Laughter's Best Medicine. Have THAT STRESS RELIEF. Right now it gets real bleak for people. I'm sure you know we get messages. some people say. Thank you for doing that. I was looking forward to it all week or this was a tough week and that was a really right and it was a big bright spot and people are very appreciative for it. People are very you know. We're also do. We have other efforts going on right now. Given the given circumstances so appreciative of those as well. So what the only reason why we keep pushing even with our stance out the things that we would hear her one woman say that is came up to set a meet and greet after the show and she said I lost my daughter over two years ago and I haven't laughed since and I just spent two and a half hours laugh at my fight off so she said something like that was so important to the thing is in the face of adversity. These kinds of experiences are so important for people in terms of a coping mechanism. We would do the things that we met you at And so we were doing greet. Afterwards people take pictures and there was a big crowd of people and then the crowd started to part. It was like a red seat and this little woman with really short cropped white hair came through and scrammed my hands and she goes. I already crying. She was and she says. I just had to meet you and say thank you because you were videos on youtube or the only thing. That got me through Chemo. For everybody's crying at that point but it was so lovely to me. You know at that point. We were having a hard time than the run of the show quite naturally and physically and you goes like in our dressing room like this why you keep covering. This is why we do it. He was right there because it does make a difference. Even our silliness makes it different. I really believe that the arts are a spiritual gift to help us to heal to be all that we can be. You know what canes is there. There is a reason why people talk about the news. That is that you're talking about. And then all of a sudden that divine inspiration as they say pick you and suddenly it's connecting to that spirit training and the arts have always been a way for people to talk about what they're going through whether it's emotional weather. It's about social political. It doesn't matter it's always been used as a way to get a message across to communicate to have to deal with major issues. You know something Carmelo yet. You're saying something that's really important. I I totally agree with that. Because one of the things that the arch do is. It gives us perspective kind of forces us to see things of somebody else. That's what makes art such a gift. You have it like a song that you really love singing million we do. I mean I think it's we put in our first show but I say case awry.

It's really just about knowing that there's GonNa be a bright spot in someone's otherwise crappy day you know what I mean. Have you heard from any of the nurses like do they know that you don't attach our name to it because the donations coming from so many different people and again really not about the recognition? It's just about providing a spot so you know what I mean and so we just send them back. We just send them back. We could you know. We know that there's no way to truly say.

Oh my gosh I miss you so much do you you miss name of criminal. Here's how much do you miss me? I miss you flush Atlanta packing hung around the neck And a barrel and a screen. There's Oh did you ever play that role. Friend all my. Up Perfect is Adelaide. I know it's been on my bucket list among many other things so girls. I had not seen him since. I did that. Show in Philly and I got to catch your act and you know that was quite a while ago so much time. I made a little stuffy so I have a Cappuccino in front of me and some some discussing you know like bring enough to share with Fran. I well this is virtual little coffee. Klatch thing has an actor. I this is sensory details so I will. I just communicate to you as we're talking. I'm having my Cappuccino and day because you get married. You know girls that I I don't cook but I always so funny. Considering you come from an Italian fairway I know one a ten and I just did not want to learn how to cook. But I do know how to make my mother's discussing and that's to die for so we're GONNA be talking about favorite recipes in a minute but first I wanNA find out. What have you been up to since your cell and silly. Oh well I mean a lot. We were still traveling. The country obviously with our state because we have ten of them more than ten of them now all over the country with we went out to California and we opened up Boston. You know you on Long Island at studio that Reuters. Yeah Lizard Hearse. Yeah I know you're so. Tell me how the shows evolve. I mean do you suck with Recipe this is somebody who doesn't know how to cook. So how do you cook up these ships Kelvin? Basically what happens as I mean first? We got a million ideas. I mean you're talking to some very creative people so we come up with a basic idea of something that would make a good subject. Matter for instance we have our wedding show that you saw you also have all he's saying. Sakala marry sisters where we actually have to cater a Jewish Shiva. Not that that would happen. But it's a great idea right so we take and we have a creative team that works every closely resigned and so our main writer director. His name is Jay fell down. He actually writes our first three after and then brings it to the table and we all read it through and we. You know talk about some ideas. There's an actual script which I'm surprised at as an audience member it just. It seems so organic and just like you were just doing this on the spot. It's kind of like a blueprint you start with back now except there's a script we don't always follow it but as I'm sure what we also do and it was actually during that time that we first met you and is they used to call him. I sisters started out as sitting. Shiva with the calories. This and we actually get a reading of it right there at the theater that we were doing where you were doing to. Your mom moved joining the wedding show. We always test them with the reading. In front of an audience. We get their feedback. We implement some of the feedback into the next draft. Girls get experience. Wouldn't it come from your so talented Well mean first off. Flattery will get you everywhere so. Thank you remember honestly. It grew up from my experience growing up with talion family. Our family generations. You know the matriarchs passed down there cooking techniques and all of that even more important is just define that we always had in the kitchen. You know the kitchen is the hardest house so our our grandma passed down stuff to mob has and we were always in the kitchen. We're always playing such fabulous Italian place Jean Rosemary. Clooney you know some Sanchez. And that's why I'm so shots Fred. Like when you grew up in your tank family wasn't wasn't everybody always in the kids pro and yes and my mother used to get so mad because it was the smallest room in the House and I'm one on one attention everybody would be in there and that's my mother's making the source would start early in the morning on Sunday. And then we go to math and then we come back and here. But during the course of the Celeste cooking and the meatballs and we would be eating the doll and she would be slapping trying to get out of the kitchen and this was what I grew up and then I. I didn't think I was Italian. Just thought I'm like oh. My hand is like everybody else and then. I found out it's like not every culture does it. So this is my experience and this is what well then you James. Hey you can cook now. Well you know what I grew up in the sixties and seventies so I was My you had small kitchen. Did you guys have to kitchens? You have the kitchen downstairs kitchen upstairs with just one catch now. The only had one kitchen. Yeah we have we have the two I mean. Now it's now it's a little brother's little apartment 'cause slack but yeah how'd you're probably doing no Lazy Lazy? He loves this. He was always wanted to stay home. Video Games commercial going on right now where they actually use the word couch potato tree and has gleaned. Dong that and he's knowing I'm like yeah. You've been doing your civic duty for the past thirty years. Yeah Yeah you know family. You can't live with them and or without him. I think that's the way he won't touch. Let me tell you. He said he's social distancing himself from the gifted how you doing your show. I mean I saw some stuff on facebook and you will have some technical difficulties. I'm trying to be kind of hear. I hear it did very tail. We are about live event. That what we are. And that's what we do you adapt during this time but we aren't technical. You know what I mean but and and the reason we're doing it just because it's making a difference. People are having a good time. People are saying it's a bright spot in their week and I said I told them the last time I was like only for you people only because we get so much. Are we willing to fail? So colossally on a weekly basis. Yeah really it's rising to the occasion. I mean we can look at that situation if you open your heart and you just pass it forward..

"Having a dialogue about it because this dialogue is revolutionary and I hope you guys realize they would like to open up this dialogue for our audience question. Disseminate this information to the medical professionals there are articles and we also. This is a common Topic that we have at our national conferences. It's a it's a big issue and we do have In fact we've had several national conferences just on this particular topic but it. It's a it but remember we're reaching the able of the specialist. Is the other people out there that they may never get you all patients with these symptoms. Get to an epilepsy specialist. But there there is a lot written about. There's books on it. Maybe maybe go one more question way back there for a completely different angle. I have a question about the beautiful gender bias. I'd just been on the stage which I think is fantastic off. We're talking with experts artists who are old women and I think that's a CJ. We should all curious. The EXPERTS IS THEIR GENDER BIAS. In this field at is are you is there is there a preponderance of this affliction in women and girls as opposed to minute boys excellent though that could be desegregated that will? I don't think the exactly the answer. There is a perception that this problem is more prevalent in women but there is something we call gender differences in coming in in basically letting people know what your problem is or or or or leading the problem out so as experienced all kinds of somatic symptoms earlier than men in their twenties and thirties. Wants a mini heats the sixties seventies. Maybe fifties all says Asian problems. Come on and because there is a gender difference in kind of a living problems out. It's very hard to know the precise answer what they perceive answers that they are more common in women. How truthful these is for future to tell because as the new generations come up the gender differences are less so the younger men may decide to so much cise earlier and this kind of a gap me. Now vote just worry about the. Ptsd minute boys who are coming from the Catholic Church. Is this coming into your work? So I can speak a little bit about in terms of prevalence rates of child sexual abuse. Typically the the rates are one in four women and one in six Voisey's and so there's an issue with under reporting and there's an issue with cultural issues that prevent people feel for from feeling comfortable disclosing right so it's hard to say and I think there's a lot of cultural variables that prevent men from disclosing their sexual abuse and from seeking treatment. I think it's a big issue. And there's a great website called one in six dot. Org that speaks to this specifically that I think is really important. Unfortunately this is just the start of a conversation. We will continue outside in the lobby. And you'll have an opportunity to ask questions if you didn't have that opportunity now and you can also visit the brain trauma brain project website and send your questions to there as well but you have some other announcements to make. Oh I don't know if it's an announcement but thank you. My name is Marissa Cavani and I'm an artist as well as an advocate. I'm the founder and CEO of an organization called healing tree stands for Healing Trauma. Resources Education and empowerment. So I'm sure that a lot of you watching tonight has been going. What do we do about this and and sort of? Where do we go from here? Because this is a huge issue so our mission is to transform how society responds to abuse and interpersonal trauma. I chew was diagnosed with psychogenic non athletic seizures after some trauma and had a complex post traumatic stress disorder. I made a recovery. After having somatic experiencing amd are other types of trauma focused treatment. Modalities and I thought well you know. I looked around and I looked at all of these. People do also had symptoms related to some sort of trauma and they were not being diagnosed with trauma they were being told. They had a brain chemistry problem. There are being told they had genetic issue that they would always be this way. Here's your medicine cope with for the rest of your life and I thought that was wrong and there are a lot of people who agreed with me in the trauma field and that field was not integrated with mental health and medicine. Which is what we're talking about tonight and so I just wanted to volunteer with an Orange. Us doing something about it. I couldn't find one so I started one so we have some resources. So if you're interested in learning more of this we have We WanNA connect survivors and their loved ones with resources necessary for healing rather than hoping so there are lists of articles tons of articles about all sorts of abuse through a trauma. Focus Lens and all sorts of physical and mental problems through a trauma. Focus Lens there's videos. There's a recommended reading list. There's an approved care network where we can hook people off with therapist to get it. And then there's Education. We give us to doctors to help them understand. You know more about the the trauma side and then there's the arts the empowerment pieces really art so excited to be tonight because what better way to kind of change society's response to something then topping the arts so awesome brochures if anybody wants to connect and you know just if your interest is piqued or somebody else's is needing help. Hopefully we can point you in the right direction and also to continue the work that has been started here. Donations will gladly be accepted.

"Conversation. So hopefully we can bridge that chasm we can create education. We can create that dialog and I would also offer that it's not the doctors don't know what's wrong when a patient presents with unexplainable neurologic symptoms. There's not a drug for it and we can't do surgery if I had a Maiko and traffic right now. There's not a drug for it. It's out there. It is theater and we can read you. Know raise awareness through theater so in thinking about my scrape different part of this. I am a feminist relational strength based psychotherapist and the way it relates to how I work is really thinking about Dalians resilience. You know I think. Everyone has the innate capacity to heal when given the right circumstances right. She's a strong woman as are so many other survivors and so. I just saw great strength and her journey in her thirst for her own healing. And when given the right circumstances the healing did happen and is happening now. So that's one thing that stands out for me. The other thing is as a relational psychotherapist. Dr Judith. Herman is one of my heroes. And she has a three stage model of healing rate and the third stages connection and so. That's what daily on is doing. Now she is sharing her story and connecting and inspiring others survivors. So I think just to add on I do. I'm a body based therapist but from my lands that you know strength. Based given the right circumstances we all have the innate capacity to heal and the importance of connection and sharing story is really important to me. Thank you. He'll actually even I. I read this play. The most important sentence that captured me was who beautifully Communicating the experience of dissociation started. I retreat into my bottle and I found that sentence like priceless and then the second thing I really liked the body of ease so obviously sharing experiences of having multiple images on oneself our consciousness when not traumatize every moment makes the image of me fused with the previous images and introduced me my image as pig now if I had trauma I would have multiple images I don't not for us and I will go back and forth between it happens and if I have. Epilepsy might temporal and my temporal lobe is discharging normally just like Marie said memories can flash art and go in up in now and that would be epilepsy however if I had trouble and physiology is not playing. Sir All right. I can have having abnormal discharges in the rain very similar experiences. Different images of different ages are popping off. And I'm not able to make a ques- image of myself at this moment and I felt like this was brilliant that somebody was able to write it so beautifully to add to that somewhere in the production. You hear her. Say That's girl does put you need to do so. She's talking to her little girl self well. That's really remarkable because what we strive for And smack experiencing bodywork is not to have the person just in those gut wrenching feelings because then you just in it but the idea about being able to be in touch with that but at the same time that the rational thinking brain online so you have the observer and that's something we usually need to educate clients about so when they come into this even just asking the person just to notice what's going on in their body is asking them to use their mind so for her to be able to say okay girl at you need to do this. And she didn't learn from work together. Is Billy extracted? She'd been doing that since a very young. Yeah look at what she was saying which was just extraordinary. How she could bring these instinctual feelings gut level harsher feelings and also a mind. That's making sense out of it. She thought that she didn't learn that in therapy. She brought that up. So how do you as practicing physicians and psychiatrists? How do you use the resources that you have to help patients to get better? Where do you start? Well I would start with with the relationship and so one thing. That's really important with working with trauma. Survivors is using invitational language. Asking questions when you're traumatized you don't have a sense of control and power in the situation and so it's really important to say. Is it okay if we talk about this? When I did the grounding. I said I will like to invite you to do this. If you're comfortable and so I think giving a sense of control back to the patient is really important inviting them as well as sharing with them. What you're doing so the psycho education is really important. And that's part of empowering them is understanding what you're doing think a lot of traditional psychotherapy just expect people to kind of know what to do. I mean I sit here and listen and you talk. It'll be fifty five minutes you know. Tell me everything and this you want to educate them about trauma the nervous system healing and the work that you're doing and so I think with that then trust begins and safety and I think you start slow and you start. Were there at well. I just want to add to that because I was thinking about you. Know what about helping people identify resources right and it just seems so timely need to rights to people to come forth this just you'll so timely and also a few of us were together yesterday and the excitement about what happens neurologically and then also speaking with pat when she said about even non epileptic seizures and I said Oh role or no I would never take client on. Who has seizures? Well why not because I have this idea right that someone's going to convulse on the floor and what to do and so the idea about being educated about just how to learn to do that so just so you know the the multi collaboration and if we just it just felt like such a luxury but so necessary to have these conversations if I may add to that so somebody comes perks. This events of shaking the tree the the first step is to diagnose this epilepsy or Non Epilepsy. Seizures was on epilepsy. Seizures is diagnose usury tests called video. Jv Avenue and the G B look at the episode itself. You look at the brain waves and if you have the episodes in the brain with showing normal individual we say okay. This is a non epileptic seizure. Just me as my brain is not abnormally. Discharging patients having attack. Then the second step is a giving you the news to the patient. Obviously we all want to give the news in the way that is not traumatic to the patient. The patient can listen to it and accept. Td regard having to relieve some the same experience without having psychologists in the room. So it's very important to patient feel respected. Have them woman then? The third is step combs the treatments and that is where all the hardship comes kinds of the most common treatments and approved to treat the underlying disorder onto depressant sent for CBT or coordinated behavioral therapy after that many times. The patient doesn't respond to any team and this is when these treatments that are currently not necessarily studied or approved. Become a question. Should the patient use them? Why under on record? Why not if everything else fail? Just like to add my first experience with non epileptic seizures. And I hit that name because if you do the abbreviations penis we've never come up with a very good name for it is pretty terrible. Basically my first experience was actually seeing a patient in the epilepsy. Monitoring Video. Eeg Dr Africa's referring to and the patient is reliving the trauma through public thrusting. You could just like the in the east. He doesn't show. Any abnormal abnormal flipped over maladies and their eyes are closed there in the reliving. And you can just see it. And it's pretty tragic and traffic see fairly pethick demonic for psychogenic non epileptic seizures. And the. There's so many challenges you get patients. Most patients aren't on my selene phenobarbitol anymore but they can be on upwards of three to four to five medications when they come in and see you still seizing and then the other thing is education. Because what happens as soon as you put the cycle. The PSYCHOGENIC nyah politics diagnosis in their chart. They go to the ER and they're told they're seizures or fake fake seizures and I hear that a lot and so I try to educate patients that this is not something that you have control over. This is not your fault because then there's an open a whole other thing of guilt that comes with that so it's so complex it's beyond complex and I'm so excited to be here.

"Having and how she'd had this form of therapy that had been helpful to and I was in the middle of getting ready to put on my twenty six annual conference for neurologist in and nurses and people on the front line of Kiribati. Lipsey and one of the problems in epilepsy is that we often have to diagnose people with non epileptic seizures that look just like seizures but are coming from underlying the conflict in minicamps. It's people who have been abused as children. And in fact about fifty percent of the patients on our monitoring you to turn out to have not have believed exceed yours and I feel often. We don't do a very good job in getting them the help they need for many reasons but lack of resources lack of insurance covering those kind of therapies. It's a problem so when Dale and told me about this a wounded for the people that I follow in my conferences I wanted. I knew they needed to know about this so I asked her and I asked her with his tation. Because it's a very personal thing. It's not nice to ask people those things but I really wanted to help my people and so I said Elliot. Would you come and be willing to speak about your experience? And she said I'll think about it in three days later. She called me and she said I sat down and wrote this up as a reading in if I could get some Broadway actresses to come to your meeting in Houston to speak to do to perform this when that work as oh yeah. I'll take me interested and I always have very different things in my meetings as as some of you will. It is that I think people need to know about the whole spectrum. You know I'm trained as a psychiatric social worker and in my fifty years of career. I've spent most of my life actually looking at at abuse in trying to help people who've been abused and witnessing the incredible impact this has on individual on a family on a society. It is incredible. Impact physically biologically socially psychologically and finally in fact. I want said one of our first conferences. We had on non-olympic advance. I said if society ever figures out the cost of abuse. They'll go after that just like they do cigarette smoking man. And that's a good start. Thank you Jane Dr Jane. Yes some Dr Jane and Dale and really allowed this to happen. Actually well let me start from my background. Trained psychoanalysis and hypnotherapy and somehow stumbled upon somatic experiencing and the idea about bringing in the body and having people aware of their experiences. Nessin sations and how just bringing awareness to what you experience changes things so imagine you could feel really horrible. But did you just be present without reacting and just notice what you're experiencing just follow it? It helps titrate really helps the body able to restore and the brain to recalibrate anyway so dale and stumbled into my office because she knew that. I was interested and work with body mine. That's about it and she was very responsive remarkable client because as as the play demonstrates she was so determined and of course people are determined but what she did. That often people don't do is that she would push people often get afraid of these. Gut wrenching heartbreaking responses mean. That's what trauma is that. You have such experiences that the order nommik nervous system shuts down PARV brain shuts down. Because you're overwhelmed. And the idea about working with the body and touching the body in certain ways is because you need a physiology to support feeling and so she was very interested but as I said she was so determined and she wanted the table usually takes a little bit long for people to really feel safe and her body shaking out trauma and there was trust that we developed. But the body knows when you're free to be able to absorb getting caught now in my sight about what happened so that's my experience with Dale. And she was remarkable. And that's how the project Tom read year. So let's continue along that line. I'm Dr Marie Collier. I'm an epilepsy. Tallest neurologist also trained in integrative medicine I actually just completed a a yoga teacher certification getting the issues out of tissues and I flew in from Grand Junction Colorado. I run an epilepsy program there in a rural community and in a rural communities. We don't have a lot of the mental health support that we have in in larger cities. And so you see a lot more Samat Ization though I see a lot of non epileptic seizures and I met de Lan in Houston three packs program actually last year. I spoke with him last year. I spoke at the Workforce Program on the role of integrative medicine in epilepsy. Patients with epileptic seizures also have non epileptic seizures. And so one of the things I WANNA do not only help my patients but also help my colleagues. I'll be forthcoming here. And give full disclosure. My biggest obstacle was. I'm fine right going to help all these other people that are sick. I'm fine and and so one of the things that Yoga and integrative medicine helped me discover was how to help myself about one million patients. A year are losing their doctor to suicide and if doctors can't hill themselves how can they help and he'll patients and it's it's tragic because when you when you think about medical school residency training nowhere. No one ever said Hey. Why don't you work on your own issues before you go and put your hands on another patient and try and help them with theirs? So you end up with doctors like Dr Finger. Heaven forbid so. I'm here to support Dale. And I went up to her after the program and said where do you want my statement? Or do you want me to put in my testimonial. And she was I right on the front of our website and it is a catalyst for change the catalyst to heal our disease care system and we're going to help each other and it's not like I'm the doctor and you're the patients we all up need healing as a community and so I'm here to be a part of that and I'm honored and thank you all my name is Dr Bianca Hardin. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and somatic experiencing practitioner. I'm very big into healer healed. I heal thyself. And it's really important that we think about the impact of the work that it has on us and so I'm a big believer not as well I've been working with child. Sexual Abuse in my clinical practice for over twenty years and I'm very passionate about preventing child sexual abuse about shining a light on sexual abuse sexual assault giving voice to people's stories and narratives and there's a conspiracy of silence that happens where people are silenced. And this is. Why is a part of this project because this is giving voice and this is very meaningful to me? So I've been doing the work and something was missing. And it was the wisdom of the body so I came across some attic experiencing and I it changed me. It rewired me. It changed my work and I've seen it do amazing things for the clients that I'm working with last fall. I got an email to be invited to be on this panel. I looked at the email and I said how can this be possible that I could be a part of this amazing project? Of course I'm coming. Yes yes and yes and then I sat watching it the first time and then I sat on the panel and I thought this is what I meant to do this. This work is so important. I feel like really emotional but it was so moving. So amazing and daily onset. I think we're going to go to New York to do this. Do you WANNA come. And I'm like yes. Of course I'm coming. And so the performance is riveting. The panel is amazing. You all are bearing witness to something very important and I'm just really honored to be here and I'm honored that you all are here as well and I'm so happy to be a part of daily journey and I'm just a long ride and so happy to be here so thank you so much thank you.

"Here in New York City along with the actress singer Songwriter then basically born and raised in the Philadelphia area along with Los Angeles Tyson and New York. So I'd like to say I grew up in and Philly Los Angeles New York and it's also spent my childhood years. Well true in Philadelphia Area and Los Angeles where I was trained at the conservatory. That's where I got my acting training. Which really led into my writing training as well when I moved to New York because it was very thorough at this fellow either conservatory and I that that experience typically changed my life I had. I went from sports. My College here is a business background. I have a finance degree but it was really never something. I really actively pursued or wanted to. I just didn't really know how to pursue fear until I just said I wanted to do it. And there's a long story behind that but when I moved to Los Angeles we're straying at the spill Adler it was a monumental change in my life because the very first time I was really exposed to the arts more so than I ever have been before I went to at that time. Twelve years of Catholic schools. And if this really wasn't a lot of that kind of arts in schools and even in high school years that I recall maybe some that we're such a sports oriented family that I really didn't know how to go about pursuing theater necessarily until I became a little bit exposed to my college years outside of the university setting so when I was trained in La. I was exposed really the great plays and playwrights of all time from Eugene meal to August Wilson and we can go on them on sets and shepherd Tennessee Williams and I was really breaking down those plays and acting out. It was a huge influence on the in in my life when I moved to New York after spending several years in Los Angeles really when I started to actively right and haven't stopped since and that's been nearly twenty years I've been here your mission for your show. I Know WanNa talk a lot about how that influence led me into teaching and other areas of arts and education and along with writing the plays actively pursuing acting career in music. I have had the advantage and a really distinct opportunity to work with some a lot of really great schools here in the city Abraham Lincoln High School I taught at play writing acting For a couple of years Wagner high school and all that I got a certificate to arts and education at Manhattan College and I know from that experience after all the things I was able to learn and experience in writing profession while still being active in pursuing it my myself. I had the opportunity to teach play writing. Acting students have have them write their own place really giving them a thorough training in the pond. I was at those schools. Expose them to just great place that I was exposed to. It happened right in cereal and coming from their own backgrounds and how that influence them it is wants them eventually because I think for you. Many of them for the very first time didn't know possibly that they had the ability to write. Or how do I go about writing a feeling that I have inside me whether it's a song or poem or play or Scream? I I never really forced in this more China ideas and thoughts and feelings down on the page and then trying to create something totally new. That has never been there before intentionally acted out. I also had subsequent opportunities to teach at various other places around the country because my play on the day of the days that followed which was about nine eleven was picked up at various high schools and grade schools and colleges. Here's your and I was able to be flown out to some of these areas. Teach creative playwright courses and a couple of colleges here and they're being guest lecturer and certain times it was just so that's as much of my background or some of it anyway in in some of the arts and education experience that. I've had if you touch one person. I feel as the way I was touched by studying where I studied specifically in late fell out in. La You don't know where what that will lead to. I mean I've bumped in my acting teacher air ten or so years later. Deborah chemists remain. I said Deborah changed my life. You don't realize how much you changed my life consensus huge profound way and so I didn't smoke there all day long in two years. You know then you don't light goes on and suddenly bumped into somebody who is at such a significant influence in your life. Then you had. The opportunity thanked him as she'd actually coming from. I play the violin coming up weekend. Wonderful tough talk about this latest project. That's fifty nine hundred fifty nine. Yes exactly we are. Incre- is right now. We started September seventh show opens October fourteenth. And it's violinist and the end of the play and it is directed by Joe District is a wonderful director. And what a cast that. I have been able to work with Robert lupone. Who was up for the Tony Award for Chorus Line Several years back keep Brad? Perry and I saw Lounge out the cast and they play Gio and bobby and Terry respectively. The and I need to say as well. It said a director's company and shadow catcher entertainment production along with fifty nine fifty nine which is an awesome. Then you know so far. We've had nearly full houses for reviews and the response of play has been absolutely outstanding. I'm very very very very fortunate. And blessed working with such a great group of people all the way around. It's been an experience really Seattle. Weekly my life so far. It's a wonderful wonderful time. And the fact that the play's been so well received it's been very very rewarding to have that opportunity. I'll give you a brief synopsis of the play. And I just actually happened here. So it's when Bobby Terry and Geo two hapless brothers and a world weary Taylor fight a seventeen ten stradivarius violin. We're four million dollars in the backseat of New York. City calf looks like opportunity to change their fortunes landed in their laps. Shot after dreams however will mean some quick decisions testing loyalty and family ties irrevokable consequences. So there's a lot of humor in of all but there's a lot of drama involve and that kind of balancing act. It is really a very very funny. That very dramatic and very meaningful to the audience as well to me and everybody's just involved with it so I'm helping your audience and the odd king conceal show about the violin and I made today and I we want before I send you off on your way. Where did this inspiration for this play? Well I know you awesome. I play a homeless and how we got that we talked about that too and I sort of get this question. A fair amount in regards to what some of the influences are. All I can say on a broader scale is that I write every single day. I feel like I have been given a gift to write. I don't take that get for granted at all very very hard and writing. Something down every single. That often don't know where a lot of stories come from the she's they're planning writing logging that I that I that I have. I'll hear things see things fall of company and I log those things and once. I really decide to start writing. I'm ready to smuggling reading something new. I have all these things sort of popping out at me because able to create lobbies these influences in these little sees that I call them and then from there you. It is just sort of back and forth conversation that I have. I don't know who some of the people are. I don't know many times. They are at all well. What the circumstances are pretty pretty good writing strong dialogue so the going back and forth with me as much as often accused nights going back a call and Response. I go back and forth writing and conversation all of a sudden nine cents sometimes. Like wow okay now. That's what the stories about okay or that. All that from this person might be and then you just start layer it in the majority of my material. I never set out writing at all and the only times. I really try to really get something off my chest where I had I need to write about. This was with on the day. Today's followed which is the nine eleven play and I needed to put that down a lot of people friends of mine who actors. Were asking me Danny whether you're going to write about what it was when you're going to get some and that frustration for me of not being able to sort of tell anything about it. I didn't know that. The chain influence of the starting point of that play actors asking a playwright in dark stage for the words against the we need to say something experience and he doesn't know how to do it. And that actually became the catalyst for for for that play. The other one was recently my play. How take life in Chennai McClintock? My younger brother passed away a couple of years ago from cancer. Those stories were really really something that I I wanted that whereas setups try to write something about those subjects direct material including violin and many many mills homeless. How he got way. I can't really say that. Was John. Set out and try to write a story about this. They just Germany. After planting the seeds starts to evolve. And that's that's kind of what happened with that play and I left. What would you say? This week is the national acknowledgement of the arts and education. Week and to close. What would you say to those people who see the arts as an Amenity as an extra a business degree in finance and I also have a huge influence in arts and arts education? There is no difference in the amount of influence that that this can have in.

"Can you live without it and you live your life without it and if you can't then there is your answer and if you hesitate in the least bit and I'm saying artist. Naturally I was a theater teacher. But I'm talking all kinds of artists from photographers to musicians to Graphic artists to acting to film work. Whatever it is if you cannot if you can't see yourself as doing anything else then you have your answer and if you do than you need to look at another option. I was an English teacher as well. And because my background was in Educational Theatre I always incorporated drama strategies into the way that I taught literature which was always hands on and so for example I was teaching Tequila Mockingbird Harper laid to A tenth grade English classes and the way that I would introduce a book would to allow the students to get excited about wanting to read it so that when I assigned so many chapters to read. Oftentimes students would finish reading the whole book. And that's what you WANNA do. You WanNa get kids excited about reading about why literature impacts our lives and so the first day they walked in when I was going to introduce Mockingbird and I had a line of different shoes on the floor and at that point they knew you know what is What stopped to mcgarry up to here? They they were like okay. What does she go to do today? And so I said I'd like you to you know step inside the shoes and I had them speak based on the type of shoes that we had here and we explored you know what it was about the shoes that gave them clues about who might personify those shoes. And I said when you walk in somebody else's shoes you have the opportunity to Investigate who are they and why they behave that way and I said in Harper Lee's book One of the main characters atticus finch says to one of his children before you judge anybody to crawl around on their skin and walk in their shoes before you make any judgments my point is that the arts using a device like that is not necessarily an end result many people think of pursuing the arts as if it was putting on a play or putting on a performance or finishing a canvas that is and an outcome of the arts but as a teacher. It's the process. It's the exploration. It's the critical thinking that is involved to allow students to think of their interpretation of their world. And thereby become sensitized to people who might be different than them and so through. I online with France. It's my goal to raise awareness of. How vitally important the arts are and I think that through this program we the audience and I can provide an opportunity to connect the dots as it were for people who didn't realize that the arts play such a large role in our culture One of Practical ways that I can have this happen is I created a campaign called the first one hundred stories and what happened was I was reading this book by Chris. Clear called little BS and I won't spoil it for you. I do highly recommend reading at because in the book. It's about a journalist who crosses path with a young woman in a foreign country Who was raped. And she wants to tell her story and the young woman says to her would people ever lesson to May and to my story and she said it begins with your story with one story and that one story can become a hundred stories and so that inspired me to consider how I can raise awareness of the arts by reaching out through my blog. I online with Fran and asking people to submit One hundred stories My goal is to collect the one hundred stories because Americans for the arts which is an organization that promotes awareness of of the importance of the arts and are in the United States and all over and they were saying how they needed stories to support their mission. And I thought HM. This is practical. Let's do this. And so I created this blog and this first one hundred stories and coincidentally I started it The National Arts Education Week which started Was approved in two thousand ten by Congress that this would be celebrated the first week of September. And so I put the call out and before you know it who is my first testimonial but a former student of mine eighty. Falco and maybe through my podcast. I can Reach that one hundred goal and so to have all of these stories from all of these people and that was what struck me. Is that I online with Fran is about featuring featuring ordinary people who do extraordinary things and the arts and there are people out there doing all of this amazing work in all of these avenues and people don't know about it they don't know about it and I have to tell them. I want to know about this. What I see with this podcast. I seek three things. The first thing is I want to hear from people out there and I know you're out there so get in touch with Fran and tell me your story. Tell me all your experience with the arts. The second thing is there are people out there who are doing amazing things. I'm from New York. And we had the New York City Roundtable which is comprised of a couple of hundred arts and education organizations in New York City and they are doing amazing work with young people out there. I'm most familiar with the creative arts team. They just it's just amazing work. That's being out there. So my second goal is to have them come in as my guest and share with our audience about the work that's being done and how they are transforming young people's lives through their program. The third facet of my PA- my objective. Here as I outlined with France is I want people to keep coming back. I want them to say. Oh what's going to be up to next and there's going to be a mystery. Guest mystery celebrity guests and we have one here today. That I'm very excited. Agreed to Fini- into his busy schedule. But we're going to talk to our guest quite soon aren't we?.

"Featuring ordinary people doing extraordinary things in the arts a little background about who I am and what I've done. I was an English and theater teacher for thirty years at northport school district on Long Island New York and then from there I got PhD Educational Theater at Nyu. Where I did some adjunct work with them and their student teaching program for Developing People in the Educational Theatre Program and then my doctoral work which was on the young playwrights festival got me the position as director of instruction for Stevenson Hines Young Playwrights Inc and that was a dream job because I not only got to work in the classroom teachers but also professional playwrights and teaching play writing and teaching and working with all these amazing young people and Talented people until two thousand eleven one funding to the arts were cut and so was my job so I decided to audition and work as a working actor and then became angry because I knew that the arts were a very important part of our culture and I started to blog one of the things that I felt very strongly about as an English teacher and as a theater teacher is that you know you could follow. The professional path was always an option and parents would come up to me and say oh you know should my son daughter pursue this and the kids would even ask me. Is this something that that I should pursue and I always answered their question with a question.
