One-Year at Penny's Open Mic!
"Falling" - song

Thank you to Cathryn Lynne for filming!
And to Penny for a beautiful year :)
"Twist of Fate" (dedicated to Penny's)
We're not alone in this universe
The breakdowns, the break-thrus
The finals straws
And the connections we allow ourselves to make
Once they break
Who can say why I picked that day, that moment
to make that move
Or how any of us do.
Spending that dollar
saying hello to that one person
snapping that photo, singing that song at that time
taking that chance
It all led me here a year ago.
My own journey:
Taking that rent check, spending it on a camera
where I would shoot my first show for fun
where photos would be seen by one person (BZ)
who would then introduce me to a Carnivale of people
who would talk about "Penny's" like it was an experience of a lifetime
that I couldn't miss.
And it is, and it has been, and it will be.
Here, right here, I found the courage to do things I only daydreamed about.
In one year, I have changed, I have evolved, and I have grown.
And it's been a very fucking long year
But I would not have been the same without it
And with Penny's
