The theme for my show on Saturday, October 13th was: Beautiful, and claiming that word.
My guests for this show were Jukie Sunshine and Alotta Boutte.
I asked my guests to come to the show and share with me (and our listeners) their "beautiful" stories. I will be presenting/speaking at the Full Body Symposium at the R. Michelson Gallery in Northampton, Massachusetts on Saturday, November 3rd. This is part of the book release event for Leonard Nimoy's book of photographs, Full Body Project, of which myself, Jukie and Alotta are featured as models. (Yes, that Leonard Nimoy).
I want to thank my guests for sharing so much of themselves. I am asking for contributions of "Beautiful Stories", and will provide credit to anyone that provides that information to me. I would like to publish a book of these stories, to provide inspiration for others to create their own beautiful story, and to provide a momentary push-up for those that need a reminder that we are beautiful.
Jukie Sunshine is studying for her MFA at the Experimental Performance Institute at New College and performs burlesque with the Diamond Daggers. She has appeared on magazine covers, on various TV shows and on the silver screen. Watch out world - she's gonna knock you out with her amazing curves and talent.
Alotta Boutte has a lead role in the longest running musical in America, Beach Blanket Babylon. She has been performing since birth - a veritable all-around talent - tap dancer, singer, actress, burlesque performer and just drop-dead fabulous.
Both of these ladies will be appearing with me in Leonard Nimoy's new book of photographs, The Full Body Project.
