From opening night of The Bandstand and over 100 played performances of Bandstand: The New American Musical later: Two Drama Desk Awards, one Chita Rivera Award and one Tony Award out of twenty award nominations, several for Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Orchestration. A cast playing their own instruments on stage, an ensemble “boasting some of the most spectacular dancers on Broadway”, and leads giving the performance of their careers. But most importantly, countless of veterans feeling not only honoured but also heard and seen and saved and their loved ones and many other people feeling comforted by this incredible musical.
You love, and tremble, and burn. Do not let any of them tell you who you are. You are the flame that cannot be put out. You are the star that cannot be lost. You are who you have always been, and that is enough and more than enough. Anyone who looks at you and sees darkness is blind.
I’ve been experimenting with taking pictures with my DSLR camera instead of my phone, what do you all think? Are they better quality? Sorry for the low lighting, I didn’t get a chance to take some pictures until late afternoon.
This is how I’m keeping track of the September challenge by @journaling-junkie and I’ll probably do something similar for October.
