I was dead asleep when Thoth woke me up. I hopped up and started doing my makeup. I was inspired to try something a little different again. I tied my hair up and stuck the feathers in and wrapped tulle around it. I painted some random wisps and glued buttons and jewels around my face and wore all my new necklaces and bracelets. It was a bit breezy when we got to the Angel Tunnel. I was underdressed. We waited in the wings and read. John Vincent came and said hello. “The break dancers came down for two shows earlier, but they left ’cause they couldn’t gather a crowd.” he said. “Were they quiet?” I asked. “No. They turned it up whenever we turned ours up. It’s good they left.” John said. Miriam came and said hello before starting to sing. No one came to the park yesterday to play. We set up and Dan came to photograph us. I’m glad he did. “You’re all dolled up.” he said. When Miriam finished, we slowly went to stretch and start prayformance. It was another lovely day. There was a rehearsal going on for a big concert tomorrow on the Great Lawn. We could hear it as if it was upstairs. It didn’t bother us while we prayformed. I’ve notice we stay at a distance from each other when we perform. I suggested we try touching each other and intertwining at points. Thoth is nervous I’m not yet conscious enough with my violin and bow. While we played during “Pentagram,” we he tried to kiss me! It was so cute! We’ll probably do it again. A man said I was channeling angelic frequencies near the end of our set. That’s sweet.

When we finished, Dan and I went out of the tunnel to take some pictures. The other opera singer, Marcela, had been waiting to play, so we turned the space over to her. We walked with Dan to the subway and said goodbye. He took pictures of us across the subway platform. The train was crowded. We got food at the health food store and went home. I was completely drained energetically. I took off my costume, stuffed my face with food and got in the shower. Michael, our drummer friend from the Bay Area, called. I called him back and we talked for almost an hour. I told him about how I’m dealing better with negative people. I was so sad and angry last year. I’ve learned I don’t have to let negative people or situations affect me. I told him I am so grateful things are going well, because I know how bad things can get. I no longer feel entitled to money or compliments, I am grateful for them. I no longer judge or feel hatred towards others, I let things go easier. I’ve learned I can control myself and myself only. I want to be a loving and good person, to smile at everyone. I want to be an angel for others. I told him I know now that if I do good work, I will be taken care of. I trust that now. He was proud of me. Michael is so easy to talk to. He gets my thoughts flowing I get a sense that he really respects us and admires what we’re doing. He used to perform with Thoth in his band back in the ’80’s. We have a special connection. I’m excited to make the new album with him in December. He’s a caring soul.
