David Razowsky is one of the most thoughtful, mindful, generous people I have ever met. Set aside his unbelievable resume for a moment and look at the person. I spent an afternoon outside of workshops and shows and got to know him. I was able to learn about his life while I watched him really listen to what I had to say, react with real emotion and connect with me. I felt like I was talking to an old friend because when I wasn’t talking, he was still listening and watching. He knows people because he is aware of them always.
I can be more present. I can be more mindful. I can listen even more. I can be more like David and hopefully one day I can operate near his level. I choose to apply improv skills to life and life to improv skills. It’s as close to a religion as I will ever get and it’s a pretty good one. Especially since I’m allowed to bend the rules when I want to bend the rules. Because, there are no rules. David is a great instrument of improv and I will cherish the opportunity he provided to us while he was here. So, that happened. I can’t change it, but I’ll be changed forever.
Last night’s show was one of the best times I’ve ever had in my life. We have more work to do.
