I lost a dear friend and relative yesterday. My great aunt Sue. She showed me a bond I haven’t had with much anyone in my family, it was just different. My talks with her, although somewhat limited and later in life, were always truly open, inspiring, and honest. She made me feel things and ways that were new to me. I had a show to put on last night, just hours after her passing/me finding out and in my head, it was for Susan. I love you
Thanks Brett Naucke (not featured in photo, because I like the one and I’m not super squinty) for the show, friendship and trust. Thanks to these wonderful strong, intelligent women who provided support to Brett with me, dr Whitney Johnson and Natalie Chami. Thank you Constellation, the most beautiful venue in town for us locals, and others. Thanks to everyone for their friendship on this night of emotions, and every other night. Chicago surely makes me happy.
