I'm so full of gratitude, joy, hope and a strong feeling that the insane decisions I've made this year were so so right. I don't have words big enough. My friends are the most fantastic people on the planet and whatever I did to earn their presence in my life I will spend the rest of my life making it worth their while.
We sold out ten minutes before the band even started. I've never felt love from a crowd like that. And I didn't even know ALL of them!
I have the Love.
And in the words of Geoffery Tennant: How? How do we make it like this every single night?

WE MADE THE KICKSTARTER!! This means the Red Nose Revue will be a real fundraiser and I won't have to pay the cast and crew and band and space out of receipts! If we sell out I could make an entire month of being alive in Blue Lake. Squee.
The best part about the whole thing is the people who donated. They donated for 2 reasons.
a) They are personal friends of mine and believe in be. What could possibly make a soul feel better than that? My strapped for cash friends with their own dreams and trials carved out some change because they love me.
b)Some donors were strangers, which means people care about this kind of work. They want to see it done. It still strikes a chord, which validates and vindicates everything I'm trying to do with my life.
It's so hard no to use all caps and multiple exclamation marks. It is an all caps and exclamations kind of day.
