Words permit one to cross into the life of the other.

For months and months (and months) 100 creative visionaries across the country have worked tirelessly in preparation for the upcoming two weeks, when they will host their own LTYM Show. Thanks to the internet, our words and lives intersect online. Emails, blogging, social media, webinars–all of the technology–enables us to collaborate and deliver LTYM show to you and your real life community in time for Mother’s Day.

Many of us–directors/producers, cast members, auditioners, and audience members alike– come to LTYM as a result of words typed from our hearts, as we press publish and connect with other people doing the same. Our words serve as a bridge–an opportunity to cross over into each others lives. We meet at the crossroads of our stories and our journeys intersect. Sometimes we simply pause and listen, receive with “I see you.” We might choose to follow that story for a bit, companion along that journey. Maybe we recognize each other and share a laugh–the kind of laughter so hard that you don’t even make noise at first–your shoulders just shake. Often we leave one another feeling less alone, and more hopeful, validated, and inspired.

LTYM now extends that bridge to you. Please join us at one of 38 shows, and allow words from your neighbors to cross into your life, and feel transported to a stronger sense of community and celebration.

Every year, I fall deeper into the commitment to LTYM shows. I feel the intent, the mission, with my entire being. Thank you, to everyone, who brings these shows to life.
