Good-night Mitzi Shore

mitzishorecollageOn Wednesday, April 11, 2018; Mitzi Shore, Co-Founder and Owner of The Comedy Store comedy club passed away at the age of 87. I did not know her; I never performed at the club and I personally know just one comedian that performed there. Her relationship to me is one of providing many other legends of the 1970s and 1980s comedy scene that impacted culture and influenced my dreams of stardom in my youth.

It’s not likely that era will soon be replicated. For that, her absence will affect future comedians more than they probably realize at this moment.

That bastard, Time, keeps speeding things up on us.

“Sunday Thoughts”

food-drive-12“Even if it’s a little thing, do something for those who have need of a man’s help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. For, remember, you don’t live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too.”

–Albert Schweitzer

“Easter Sunday Thoughts 2018”

“Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.”

–Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

“The practice of resurrection, or re-manifestation, is possible for all of us. Our practice is always to resurrect our selves, going back to the mind and the body with the help of mindful breathing and walking. This will produce our true presence in the here and the now. Then we can become alive again. We will be like dead people reborn. We are free from the past, we are free from the future, we are capable of establishing ourselves in the here and now. We are fully present in the here and now, and we are truly alive…

…The practice of resurrection should be taken up by each of us. When we practice it with success we will also help other people around us. This is the true practice of being alive. Whatever we do in our daily practice — walking, sitting, eating or sweeping the floor — the purpose of all these things is to help us become alive again. Be alive in every moment, and by waking up yourself, you will wake up the world…

…Redemption and resurrection are neither words nor objects of belief. They are our daily practice. We practice in such a way that Buddha is born every moment of our daily life, that Jesus Christ is born every moment of our daily life”

Thich Nhat Hanh

May We All Rise Today and Begin A New Day With A New Light
