I was going to go to the final The Works performances tonight - despite having to get up early tomorrow. But I decided that I really did need the sleep *and* I went to Mike Daisey's "Notes" and it was intense, moving, inspiring, and it felt like the perfect ending to my T:BA:10 since I couldn't go to anything on Sunday - the true final day.
So I'll post my notes in reverse order, since I'm already talking about Mike Daisey. I won't give away the punchlines - this is a work in progress. I found it very moving. I believe what he said that this is still very much a work in progress. I love that. There is an intensity, a rawness, and energy that infuses works in progress that is rarely matched in well-worn performance. The hope is that they keep some of it there

This was a great T:BA festival. Next year I need to plan more time (and less work) into my schedule. I needed the slower pace this year - and I am confident in the selections I made. I haven't commented on everything - but only hit the highlights.
I am inspired. I am alive. I feel. I have received my creativity infusion for this season and ready to do more.
