Bye 2017! Friends, thank you for a wonderful 2017 and for all the wonderful birthday wishes. Of my twenty years on this earth, I have grown and learned more this year than ever, and I am so grateful for and to each and every one of you. I hope we can all continue to grow in love, and that we can all find a compassionate, forgiving inner voice in 2018. 💕
When you make it to Sunday and it’s your fifth performance of the week... 🙃Thank you, dear matcha, for keeping me going all these years. #IsaiahRunsOnMatcha (Come hear the Chamber Players today at 4:00pm, Werner Recital Hall!)
"Dehumanizing and holding people accountable are mutually exclusive. Humiliation and dehumanizing are not accountability or social justice tools, they’re emotional off-loading at best, emotional self-indulgence at worst. And if our faith asks us to find the face of God in everyone we meet, that should include the politicians, media, and strangers on Twitter with whom we most violently disagree. When we desecrate their divinity, we desecrate our own, and we betray our faith." ~Brené Brown
It's not often I'd call a book important, but @brenebrown 's Braving the Wilderness is so so important and very timely. It's a quick (but dense) read, please pick up a copy!
Had a great week playing for Mindy Kaufman and Bonita Boyd at Eastman this week! 😊 And I got to play with some of my favorite flutists, especially my partner in fluting, @fluttituttiviva! ❤️👏 #flute#flutist#flautist
