Crazy Enough

And after seeing Storm Large perform a monologue mixed with her incredible singing...I don't feel so crazy anymore! Lol! My dear friend, Thea and I went to go see the play Crazy Enough. I was thoroughly impressed!! Storm Large (and that's her real name if you can believe that) is so talented. It's actually kind of hard to explain but it was basically a stand up monologue mixed with songs she wrote herself. The monologue is about her "crazy" life and how her mother's mental illness affected her in both positive and negative ways and in the end.....she realized life is, indeed, CRAZY..but it's also all in how you decide to write your life based on what's handed to you. Great lesson, although it sounded like a rough life for her BUT in the end, here she is. She's incredibly talented, on stage, making appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres show and using the talents that were given to her. All this amidst the discovery that mental illness runs in her family and amidst the death of her mother just a few years ago and how she came to terms with that. WOW. It was emotional to say the least and extremely funny and the same time!

Here's a snippet I found on YouTube of her doing her rendition of the song by Olivia Newton John, Hopelessly Devoted to You (the stalker version she calls it). It shows the comedic side of her. Lol! Don't forget to turn off my player below!



And now.....I am grounded for the rest of the week!! I need home and down time for awhile. :) See, even Quincy is demonstrating how I feel. :)

Oh okay, maybe a short horse riding lesson. Nah. We'll take a break. I don't want Mr. "Funk" to come knocking at my door. :)

While you are laying around 'grounded' tee hee, with Quincy skip on over to Tickleberry Farm to see her latest post of a country~style tailgate as featured in Country Living. She's thinking of having a Blogger tailgate.

P.S I believe in dreams...and that God speaks to us in them.
