Walking to CBC, standing in a queue listening to people talking about the taping show, taking an elevator, going to a studio…  that is how we become part of something larger than self…

The studio is dark, lots of cameras in each corner, some wearing black invisibly guiding you to the room… the room and its aroma, its catchy lights … equipment all around… new and old rusty, dusty, and shiny…

Watching self in the room, as a witness, in this new making… moments of being part of a production…

No matter if it is a talk show or a music show or a comedy show, you are part of a repetition of events … every time it gets repeated, it is better understood… you learn to be present non-judgmental…  mistakes are made, personal /technical glitches with no negativity attached … it is like life- moving, floating, making, and remaking itself …

You are an outsider but a contributor…. your emotions- laughter, sadness, excitement, disgust and joy- count … each word, each punchline, each melody is an invitation to be part of…

The world -small or big- is a stage, is a taping set… we are guided by others to take a place in this world; we play a part, we perform with consciousnesses or without, we are part of it if we feel included or not, we are in it…

it is up to us how to make it; it is up to us to help remake it; our part matters, our presence matters, we are significant in this room, in this world…

Do your part …

Happy possibilities!
