“Depression is Rage Turned Inward”
This expression best illustrates Depression in its most common sort. For though you might feel fatigued and depressed, your strength is all but gone. What has happened, by way of time, is you might have acquired to redirect your energy badly within just the human body. That is to say your liver meridian is away from equilibrium. Subsequent troubles might arise these as headache, tinnitus (ringing within the ears), chilly hands and toes, mild or severe tension- specifically in the chest and ribs and irritability. This is certainly commonly adopted by periodic outbursts of anger or yelling. For girls, this may manifest notably all around menstruation, as cramps, irritability, breast distention and depression usually tend to arise. After the cycle is over, having said that, the indications enhance. The release presents an opening for vitality to move.
The liver procedure plays a crucial job in governing the right amount of blood and energy on the rest of your internal organs. Therefore, about time, a liver that governs poorly will impact all other organs. Most acutely nonetheless, may be the depression that occurs from this mismanaged power movement.
According to Chinese medicine, the liver governs the emotion of anger. Improperly expressed or neglected indignant inner thoughts will bring about what we make reference to as Liver Chi Stagnation (an exceptionally frequent phenomenon listed here during the US). This basic blockage arises for a variety of factors but while in the scenario of depression it often arises owing to mismanaged thoughts. From an early age we often find out to suppress our anger which keeps all those all around us happier. This will likely have worked while in the previous even so the ultimate price to pay during the very long run is inappropriate power flow, deep inside of the human body. It is just a persistent issue which can practically tear at your insides.
Many folks have defeat melancholy through acupuncture and Chinese medicine by addressing the liver system instantly. The secret is opening the movement together the liver channel, harmonizing the liver and placing one back into harmony. Right needling and organic prescriptions assistance the patient release stagnant stream, alleviating depression and enabling blood and strength movement to appropriately nourish other aspects of the body. Adjunct strategies may be taken into consideration such as meditation, workout, nourishment and lifestyle practices.
Depression just isn’t something you will need to dwell with. In truth most depression can be handled a lot easier than you could feel. The good news is you’ve got the strength and you contain the will. What comes subsequent is your preference to aid it move. By releasing this trapped strength, you begin to rework stagnation into path, improve anger into motion, hopelessness into leadership.

Hello out there!
So this blog has gotten a bit out of date I’m afraid. Why, you ask? You see, the play is up and running! Did you know that? We’re down at 3LD performing almost every night of the week! Have you come down and checked it out yet?
We also have a facebook page that we are much better at updating with tidbits, video clips, and all. You all should just head to facebook and join the Fan Page.
We have been having an amazing time performing so far. We hope to see you at the theater soon!
signing off for now,

So, oddly enough there are a series of books which came after The Diary of a Teenage Girl, titled Diary of a Teenage Girl (no “the”) which are Christian books focused on bringing high school aged girls closer to Jesus… or that’s what I can tell from their website… Here’s a synoposis of one of the books: Chloe Miller is a free spirit with funky clothes and dramatic hair. She struggles with her own identity, classmates, parents, boys, and—her biggest question—whether or not God is real. But this high school freshman definitely doesn’t hold back when she meets Him in a big, personal way. Refusing to change her image to fit into the “stereotypical Christian preppy mold,” Chloe expresses God’s love through the girl band she forms, Redemption.
Yeah. Really couldn’t be more different from what Diary is about. And someone brought up to me recently, that perhaps they created these books in direct response to THE diary of a teenage girl. Interesting thought. Phoebe’s work has been banned from certain libraries, and many people have been scared by the honesty that they read in her book. She’s kinda the Harry Potter of teenage girl genre books… spooking the right wing by her honest metaphorical story about teenage girls which clearly promotes witchcraft and mocks authority, and lures young girls into demonic thinking. Hmm. Not exactly. Amazing that such an honestly told, brave story could make people so scared.
At least the pope hasn’t condemned The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Yet.

We’re excited that people are getting excited because we couldn’t be more excited and couldn’t want others to be excited more. EXCITED!

But I am sorry. I am getting a lot of inquiries about what is happening with the project these days… and I am sorry I have been so bad about updating the website.
But rest assured, things are moving forward. We’re thrilled with the phase of development we are in these days. We are planning a video workshop for the summer where we will experiment with the multi-media, video aspect of the project and get ourselves ready for production. We have been meeting with video designers and video artists and are so excited to break open the ideas for how to bring this project to life.
Thanks to all of you who are out there silently rooting for us (yeah, you)… We need that support and I promise we won’t disappoint.
And I’ll try to be better about updates.

I have no good excuse. But I do want to report on what has been happening with the play. Things have been going so well!
We did our reading in LA at the Zephyr Theater… and it was an amazing success. The team of people who work at the Zephyr and for the Zephyr Reading Series were so wonderful. They made the entire experience so easy. We flew in (Sarah, Rachel, Aaron and I) to LA and did a couple of days of rehearsal before the actual reading. The big news of the weekend was that Phoebe Gloeckner was coming to see the reading! (oh my god… everyone went into a bit of a panic) She was flying in and it would be her first taste of the play. It was a bit intimidating, I’ll admit. But so exciting.
So, the reading was packed to the gills (that’s a phrase right?) and there was a ton of anticipation in the room. And the whole thing flew by like a whirlwind. But through it all I could see Phoebe leaning in from the audience. But that could mean a lot of things. Turns out- it was a good leaning in. She really loved it. AMAZING! (don’t believe me? check out her blog here: www.ravenblond.com) She and I spent the next afternoon together and talked about her experience of seeing her beloved book up on the stage. She was so generous and complimentary. It was more than I could have ever expected. And then she and I went back to her hotel room… the exact hotel room in which Janis Joplin died (not a coincidence of course). I was with this amazing woman who I so admire, paying tribute to another amazing woman we both admire. It was one of the best days.

So… we’re doing a reading in LA in October. That’s pretty cool, huh? Yep. We think so. It will be at the Zephyr Theater on Melrose.
Hopefully this will be our last reading that focuses only on text. The next step is going to be doing some sort of workshop that incorporates the video element. That will be exciting.
We did a reading of the script the other night, just Sarah and Rachel and I. We just wanted to hear the new draft out loud and I’m overly proud to announce that it came in under an hour and forty five minutes. That was the goal. And I think the script is getting better and better. It would suck if it was getting worse, wouldn’t it?
Well, that’s the report. Things are going well. Things take longer than I want them to… but they’re moving in the right direction.
July 23rd, 2008
Well, THAT is a good question! Thank you for asking…
I am in rewrites these days, attempting to cut down the script to possibly live without an intermission. Which means it needs to be an hour and a half (an hour and forty at the tops!). It’s a task, since at the last reading I think it clocked in around 2 hours and 5 minutes or so. But the work we did in the last two readings has made certain cuts very obvious to me.
And the biggest changes have come in re-imagining the multi-media aspects of the play (letting them really represent the progression and development of Minnie as an artist). The drawings, film and photographs represent her internal artist’s story, and the story live on stage is her personal teenage self story. Sometimes those two aspects progress together, and sometimes they are in direct contrast.
The good news is every time I take a week long break from the script, I get back to it and see some new or changed parts of the script that I had forgotten about. And every time I’m thrilled. The script keeps getting better and funnier and more poignant. And that feels great. Sometimes I think I could live and evolve with this script forever. But, I want it to be in production too badly to let that happen.
Well, that’s the news from my brain.

Hi out there…
Well, I’ve been spending a lot of time contemplating the future path of Diary… and I’m happy to conclude that I’m still spending lots of time contemplating that. It’s wonderful and confusing to have options. But I do know that a series of readings are in our immediate future. One in the bay area, one in LA, and perhaps one more New York reading. It’s a complicated task to take a new play like this, and find the best trajectory for it. And I’m so committed to creating a fantastic production that does this story justice, that I want to make sure we step carefully (but not too carefully).
Either way, the latest good news is we’ve gotten some interest from LA to do a reading at a theater, most likely in October. I think it will be a great opportunity to expand the base of support for this project. There are many other potential opportunities popping up… but I’ll talk more about them once they’re more real.
“Don’t get nervous in the service, kid!” As Monroe would say. There’s lots to do.
Still just saying yes!
