..and, once again.

Being funny is a strange thing.  I'm a storyteller by nature.  I'm not a one-liner kind of gal.  When I tell a tale - and that's usually what it is - a very exaggerated, but goofy rendition of an incident which I find funny, I make people laugh.  It's a great feeling to make other people forget about their worries for a while and double them over with laughter.

What I need to do is remember this when I'm on stage tonight.  I'm not there to "impress" the other comedians.  I'm there to make people smile.  I think that's what I've been missing...this is where I've gone wrong.

Re-shift.  Back-up, place in neutral, feel the idle, concentrate, focus on what's important, and move forward into first at a gentle and steady pace.
