I did my reading on Thursday! It was so great. I was so nervous but ultimately it was cathartic. K did a run through with me at home and he gave me some great notes. I think he’s a natural director.
Amalia put out a serious spread together for the pre-reading reception. I brought ginataan and it was mostly finished by the end. The reading had a very intimate vibe. I really enjoyed it and am very glad Michelle invited me.
K’s family came. So did Sarah, Steven, and Seth which was very awesome. There wasn’t anyone else in Hawaii that I cared to have there. It was complete.
Sarah and Steven gave me the lei in the picture. It’s a puakenikeni lei. It’s so pretty but it’s also very very fragrant. I have it hanging on the lampshade by our bed. At night, three days later, I can still smell it.
