How can we distill and refine our mission to convey what is most important about our message? How can we align our bodies, hearts, minds, spirit and movement to bring you a performance that not only entertains you, but transforms you? How can we awaken the stories of inheritance within us, and within you?
It is a wonderful time to reflect on the past year...
On the gratitude we have for our friends with benefits...
On why we weren't producing burlesque shows...
On Sinner Saint, the Business...
On our first lineup...
On the seeds that were planted to become Inheritance...
On why we are putting on this show...
And, on how we wake up every morning thinking about this show.
Each day we wake, we get closer to bringing you the show that is Sinner Saint's greatest and most important production yet. We want to share this poem with you today, on what to remember when waking.
What to Remember When Waking by David Whyte
In that first hardly noticed moment in which you wake,
coming back to this life from the other
more secret, movable and frighteningly honest world
where everything began,
there is a small opening into the new day
which closes the moment you begin your plans.
What you can plan is too small for you to live.
What you can live wholeheartedly will make plans enough
for the vitality hidden in your sleep.
To be human is to become visible
while carrying what is hidden as a gift to others.
To remember the other world in this world
is to live in your true inheritance.
You are not a troubled guest on this earth,
you are not an accident amidst other accidents
you were invited from another and greater night
than the one from which you have just emerged.
Now, looking through the slanting light of the morning window
toward the mountain presence of everything that can be
what urgency calls you to your one love?
What shape waits in the seed of you
to grow and spread its branches
against a future sky?
Is it waiting in the fertile sea?
In the trees beyond the house?
In the life you can imagine for yourself?
In the open and lovely white page on the writing desk?
