Outside there are choices
Colors, warmth, and giving.
If I could just get out there I'd be very good at living.
I started writing "FULL" last October after a particularly trying day of treatment. I was walking home and images, sounds, and lyrics filled my brain. I fell asleep writing that night. I don't care what higher power you ascribe to, but I know at that moment I was experiencing something divine that I never had before. It was like ideas were pouring out of me and I couldn't move my pen or strum my ukulele fast enough. Monday night, with the help of some of my best friends in the entire world, I was able to share my creation for the first time.
I have been having trouble truly putting the experience I had on Monday into words, but I will say it was one of the best nights of my life so far. The love I felt inside that room was unlike anything I have ever felt. And that is because of all of you. For helping me write this story, for your interest and kind words, for your support, and for your excitement...thank you will never be enough. And the most exciting part? This is just the beginning!! Monday night was the first reading. In the words of Harper: "This is not the final page, I know that there is so much more." Yes, "FULL" is my story...but it is also everyone's story. Everyone has a demon that they have to fight. Everyone is the hero of their own story.
Kelly -- Thank you for pushing me to do this. Your support and love has been everything to me and it's because of you that I really dove into this with both feet. I could not have done it without you...and not in a creepy Emily way, in a you are the best and a total badass way.
Taylor, Susan, Jim, and Miriam -- The love I have in my heart for you is indescribable. I could not have asked for a better group of people to present this story! Thank you for holding me up. So...next step Broadway? Great.
Matt, Eric, and Jim -- Thank you SO MUCH for letting me do this. I am so honored to be a part of the freeFall family.
There is no rest for the obsessive...bring on the rewrites!!!
