Happy Indigenous Peoples Day. _____________________ Today, more than ever, I believe it is crucial to honor those who built gender egalitarian societies—wherein sexual violence was virtually unheard of—rather than the man who symbolizes the targeted destruction and dismantling of those values and societies. I say this despite seeing a quite impressive 75ft statue of the man from my bedroom window in Columbus Circle for over a decade and my 23&me recently informing me I am, in fact, blindingly white. _____________________ I of course love my country, particularly its capacity for change, but when you learn both sides of our history, it’s very interesting to think that many of the values we now view as progressive—gender equality, non-violence, respect for the natural world (the only home we have ), communities taking care of their own, and recognition and respect for LGBT or two-spirit people—are actually as traditional as it gets and predate our nation’s founding. _____________________ Native peoples have been practicing these values and beliefs long before any person claimed to discover this land and began normalizing sexual violence, particularly against Native women. That a conquering mentality toward Native women came with a conquering mentality toward Native land is no coincidence. They are inextricably linked. _____________________ While the legacy of colonialism threatens these values, many non-Natives are beginning to wake up and take action. Historical silences are being broken. Of course there will push back, such things do not come without effort and cost, but the trajectory is clear. Thank you to the courageous survivors and Native activists for keeping alive the good fight, even when it appeared no one was listening. Many are. _____________________ Was going to offer apologies for the long impassioned post, but perhaps the 0.3% Native American in me briefly outweighed the 60% british… _____________________ #violenceagainstwomenact #vawa #vawa18 #protectsurvivors

Hard to believe not so long ago it was a tiny seed of an idea levitating between two brothers’ heads... my my how it’s grown. Shout out to @kurpanek for weaving your magic, you machine of a unicorn you 🇩🇪🦄. What a ride. What a team.
Owen still thinks we’re cool...

Happy 2018, friends. May your next journey around the sun on this glorious speck of dust suspended in a sunbeam be filled with discovery and love. Here’s to yet another chance to get it right and give into the music of it all. I for one have only just figured out what the heck one of my favorite old songs (might ) mean, and I’ve been listening to it for the last five years, so things are already looking up. May you find new beauty and poetry this time around, even in what might at times, like this song, seem expired. As the pastor Robert Franks noted in his profound 1721 New Years Day sermon at Edmunton: “we die but once, and therefore we live but once on Earth...” So carpe diem you crazy kids. Stay young and stay curious. 🔭🌍🎉

Still slaving away over my thesis, but I got my DNA results back and they're telling me all sorts of useful things I never knew about myself, so I got that going for me which is nice...
Big things coming Owen's way in 2017. 🎉🏀🛀🏻
So, on the 8th year anniversary of the opening of my first broadway show, 13, I feel it's only appropriate to post about another magical first for me in the world of musical theater. I'm directing an on-stage piece for the first time in my life, and I could not be more pleased with the artistry of my cast and the material, which is one of my favorite new musicals, Once. I'm pretty sure that we are the first amateur production of the show so it's quite the treat (and quite the pressure ) to get to reimagine the material for the first time. I'll be posting about it more as we get closer to the performances (2nd/3rd weekends of November ) but here's a little vid I snagged during our music rehearsal when it became clear to me that I didn't have much to do. Team Once, you rock. Team 13, I miss you.
