Never did I think I could be more nervous than I was at Martha Stewart’s Show, until I was invited onto the Today Show. ~ My 4 minutes of fame, part of the incredible experience at the American Made Awards, was spent next to fellow honoree Lena Quack and Martha Stewart’s lead as host of the party. Martha’s comfort level in front of the camera is an amazingly solid beacon of hope for me, as I race to remember my name, why I’m there, how I do what I do, & who to remember crediting among the network of artisans I work with while doing my work.
I think it’s impossible to ever live-out the brilliance you think you can articulate from the script in your head the day before. But the chance to practice speaking your heart on live TV is one I’d never turn down, despite the mild panic attacks and enormous surrealism that challenges that reality.
I really thought I’d faint,.. Or have a public melt down. … but I’m glad the irons work was well within sight of me, just to help keep it all real amidst living a dream.
