Rested all day. I ate lunch late and got in my makeup. We biked to Art Lab and got ready. Almost 50 people came! They were laughing as Jim introduced us! We were planning on speaking in our language the entire prayformance. As Thoth was drinking water after “Anya,” I took the plunge and spoke to the audience. “Ay-yoo teza menz? Voce la coco do vas men za?” I said. It was fun! I spoke to a woman sitting in the front row. People laughed and really enjoyed it. “Such joy!” one audience member expelled. Afterwards we had an hour talk back. Practically everyone stayed! Thoth almost lost our money on the way home! It was lying right outside the gate, thank goodness! He made caesar salad for us again. Jim loved our language. He had suggested that we speak to the audience explaining what we do and what the songs mean. I called my sister last night asking if we should speak. “No. It’s better when you don’t. It makes it more like a theatre piece.” she said. I took her advice. And it was really good advice! I can trust my sister for good advice in that regard. We forgot to bring the camera so we didn’t get to make a video today.
