Six months ago, I quit my job.

I loved my co-workers, and it paid the bills, but I felt ready to find purpose and legacy in a creative career, where I could grow into the leader I wanted to be.

For now, my own voice is what I have to work with. It’s my starting point, it works for me in exchange for food, it’s my way to get to that place where I am doing better for me, for other women, and all the people who are filled to the brim with unexpressed grief.

So, what did I quit my job to do? Well...art….basically. As I went through the mechanics of setting up my business, called Storyborne, things began to take shape. This week, I’m celebrating a milestone: a performance event I describe as a “multimedia personal storytelling extravaganza.” Members of our community are stepping forward, almost all of us for the first time, to express personal stories in a way that feels true to the teller, whether that be in spoken word, poetry, mime, dance or visual art.

To me, this work feels necessary, and while I find the business model that can keep this engine running, I am looking for support. Your contribution will lay the foundation for more events where personal storytelling in its many forms thaws the frozen feelings that keep us from feeling alive and connected.
