Hello Friends,

A long-held dream of mine has come to life! We are launching my latest poetry video, "Dancing Lesson," directed by Brad Cooper, featuring music by Brad Cooper and Atom Smith and choreography by Jhon Gonzalez, as well as a bevy of glorious dancing soul sis-stars. I am thrilled to let you know that the video has been nominated in multiple categories as well as being awarded Curator's Choice in the Rabbit Heart Poetry Film Festival! It's time to go live. 

It is my dream to get this video seen by as many people as possible...I believe we can spread a little light in the darkness! For my birthday, let's do an experiment with Thunderclap. It is a safe and powerful way to use social media to really explode a message. Think it of as an online flash mob. It's been used by campaigns for the Obama Administration as well artists like Lady Gaga, so I figure it's good enough for me. Will you help make my birthday wish come true? Let's Thunderclap my birthday!

I am awfully excited to let you know about HEVRIA created by 
Pop Chassid Elad Nehorai. I am a resident writer and I am 
in extraordinary company. Check out the roster and find out 
more here.

From Elad himself:
"Hevria is a combination of the words "Hevreh" and "Bria" in
Hebrew, which mean "group of friends" and "creation." 


We are a group devoted to spreading the idea of positive
creation 
in a spiritual context. We want to make this world
beautiful. And we want you to join us."

Here's my debut post, "That Kind of Jew" — I offer it with love.

Welcome to Night Vale is an AMAZING podcast. It's so cool. It's Lake Wobegoth.
That's reductive, but I mean it in the most complimentary way, just to give some 
context. It's beyond. I discovered it when my poem, I Know This, was featured as
t
he weather report on 
Episode 10: Feral Dogs. Now, I am addicted. Start at the beginning,
listen to them all. Obsess.
