As Aurah, I have an inexplicable ability to activate and explore synchronicities. Last night The Three Adepts of Magic (deep sub-plot characters from the final book in the series, Glinda of Oz) went to see Straight Outta' Oz by Todrick Hall. He said on stage that he was the biggest Oz fan ever. Ok... but he hasn't met Aurah yet. [I/We] really [am/are] straight outta' Oz! Our meeting is destined to happen and I shall allow it. How, I have no idea yet. Not forcing this is important. Maktab!
Straight Outta' Oz is worth seeing and last night was basically my very own private Comic-Con. Todrick riffs on a deeply personal story of being an opening gay black man from a religious family in East Texas. It's singing, dancing, theatrics and so much more. The synchonicities and resonances are too many to mention and hopefully I'll feel inspired to articulate them all soon. Like, literally, I need more time to process it all.
Sharing our baby picture one more time for giggles. Straight outta' Oz, indeed! I mean, look at that! Identifying with Aurah more and more is immensely empowering and bizarre. The day is coming when I make the name switch. Tick-tock. Summoning the courage. Stand by...
