Womansong

It took place in Grande Prairie Alberta in the Douglas Cardinal Auditorium.

I was transported by  the artistry, the tapestry and the majesty of this show

to Massey Hall, Carnegie Hall and the opera houses  in  Europe.

The acoustics were wonderful.

The lyrics and spoken word moving, touching and stimulating.

The performances outstanding.

The performers stellar.

It thrilled all of us seated.

The impact of  the show was not lost on  those who did not attend.

An old angry crone  left to see the show.

She returned as  a spontaneous light hearted woman.

Laughter rolled from her belly

and over her lips passing  her one tooth

 as she amazed  her audience at the  Elder’s shelter

 with the details of her evening.

They were thrilled with the transformation.

The intent of the show may have been to creatively give artists their voice.

One in the audience regained her youth, her spirit and her laughter.

She is  my neighbour.  

Thanks for bringing her back to life.
