Aloha! Summer & Surveys & Rewards!
It has been strange to be away from all of you and these updates - I have missed it!
All of the donations are moving from Amazon to See Me Naked's account, so we are moving happily ahead with rewards. I just sent out surveys to all of you who donated and chose rewards, so look for those in your email boxes. I'll let everyone know when coffee cups and T-shirts go in the mail! (and if you chose no reward, but now want one - or don't want part of what your reward tier held - I understand! Minds change! Just send me a message so I know what to order.)
Expect another update with news of the Naked Pizza Party soon - I'm expecting that will happen in July or August (when it's nice and warm).
On an artistic note, I have been buried deep in another project, teaching playwriting to middle schoolers and coordinating a wonderful festival of their work. It's rewarding, watching young imaginations take fire and seeing their words come to life. It has consumed me for the most part, but See Me Naked bubbles slowly on a back burner in my mind...
for those of you who know the show, the character's life off the stage is growing. Her relationships and place in the world. I continue to scan the world for ideas and thoughts about nakedness, nudity, what it means to different people. I just read a somewhat heartbreaking article about Marilyn Monroe and her last nude photos. One of the photos is such an amazing piece of art, full of life and beauty and sadness.
I don't know how much will land on the page and stage, but it'll be cool to find out.
I am going away to write a couple of times this summer, in early July and early August. Someplace with no family, no internet access, privacy - and maybe other naked people around. I'll keep you all posted.
Until then, enjoy your lives, every moment of them.
