My OHSU writing group is officially 2 years old today! And every week, I'm so happy it's a thing that exists, and that I get to sit around writing stories with wonderful people who find new, really cool stories to tell all the time. This week I learned one of these peo...

Basically jumping right off the plane and right into the woods, I'll be performing at Pickathon again this year! My show is this Sunday morning at 9:30 on the Woods Stage, but I'll be bumming around all day Saturday as well soooo if you are there you just might see me...

So… yes… amid my play’s numerous performances…. I left town and went to the Czech Republic.
