Extreme Entertainment in North #Florida. @PTTWakulla & @TWAMFlorida #SmallTownNotSmallMinds #LocoForLove


PalaverTreeTheater_TheaterWithAMission_BohemianBabushka

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Aqui esta BB,writing this post while working the box office during Palaver Tree Theater's Premier Season. They are performing Topdog/Underdog to a full house. FULL HOUSE.  
To that, Babushka can only say- ESO!!!

If you weren't aware, Babushka is into teatro. Quee?? Obvious because of BB's over the top personality? JU SO FONII!!That's being Cuban, not theatrical.


The reason this post is called Extreme Entertainment is the range, the different types of offerings between these two troupes.  Palaver Tree Theater is a true community theater, using its voz to share the history of Wakulla/Crawfordville and select dramatic offerings to open the conocimientos, mindsets of our bella part of the mundo.  


The MISSION STATEMENT:


Palaver Tree Theater Company is dedicated to the strong belief that theatre is an instrument of communal transformation. Our founding principles are to be inclusive, accessible, educational, and a relevant source to all – regardless of cultural or economic backgrounds – by providing opportunities to witness forms of artistry that validate and reflect the human experience.

#SmallTownNotSmallMinds









And ahora, BB's Beloved TWAM- Theater With A Mission

We are Theater with a Mission, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation made up of actors, scholars, and cultural explorers based in Tallahassee, Florida. We’re united by one quest: to rediscover history by reviving plays from el Siglo de Oro, the Spanish Golden Age.

Our Mission
Theater with a Mission (TWAM) creates and performs plays that explore milestones in Florida’s history.  Presented in English spiced with historic Spanish, in period costume with authentic songs and dances, our original scripts and new translations carry audiences across barriers of language, time, and space, into face-to-face encounters with Florida’s Spanish roots and history’s great ideas.

BB has been part of TWAM for many years, now part of the Social Media Team as well as acting. Aver si no ven a Babushka in this promo filmstrip for the Loco For Love Festival, Sept. 13-16.








Babushka loves those two worlds/troupes, pero saben what she loves mas? 
When the dos meet in the middle; it's magia.

Florida's Best Choice @AndrewGillum #AdelanteConAndrew #GillumForGovernor #BringItHome

This is NOT a paid political endorsement. This is an endorsement earned by Andrew Gillum through the years Babushka has personally known him. 100% heartfelt and sincerely written by BB.




HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

For the most part, Babushka tries to stay out of politics. Ok Si, living so close to Florida's state capital, Tallahasssee, it's hard to not notice the rallies, and for this opinionated, passionate CubanaAmericana impossible not to join in the ones she truly believes in. Women's Rights, Immigration Policies, State of Latinas, Environment, all these BB has marched for and covered.  All these have been parts of the whole. Bueno Beautifuls, it's now time to consolidate, to find the candidate que cubre all that is special and importante; for BB that candidato is Andrew Gillum.


 

What you see there, is the Andrew Gillum  Babushka knows. His essence, his core beliefs, his frankness about his childhood and the gratitude for all his blessings, that is the hombre who's felt like home to BB.  Notice the first thing he starts with is familia, his children. That's the main focus of his vision, what he has brought as Mayor of Tallahassee. It all starts with the children, their future dictates our own. Give them a solid, safe start and the odds are in their favor, our favor. Initiatives , events Andrew has started, endorsed, continued-

AndrewGillum_BohemianBabushka_FamilyTLH

Please note that this shows 3 years, de lo cual BB has been very feliz to have attended.

Tallahassee_Gillum_Business_Initiatives
Tallahassee Future Leaders Academy, Business Leaders Breakfast

Now we all know that without funding, the best of initiatives will never turn into realities. 
Andrew makes sure businesses are included and lets them know the win/win of joining.
When we focus and start our children off right, it's a plus for everyone.

LongestTable_Tallahassee_Gillum_BBabushka_7PoemedyZ_LaPoetaChina
Host 7PoemedyZ , dinner by artist/poet La Poeta China

Pero it's not only about the tangible he addresses. Programs like "The Longest Table" brought dialog and dinner to diverse members of the community, to open conversations and eyes.  Real questions were asked and solutions called for.  Otra cosa BB admires about Andrew, he never thinks he has all the answers. 

And sometimes he knows he doesn't have any.
 

 "When trust is disrupted, it's bad for law enforcement but it's also bad for the people they vow to protect," Gillum says.

2016 deadly shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Texas-
Mayor hosts Tallahassee Community Vigil
  
For me, Andrew Gillum is very much "one of us", and every action he does, every fight he launches, BB believes in them, he believes in them, so Babushka must believe in him. In BB's ojos he covers the justo in ways that make sense and  are real. We have the same concerns and ready to luchar for them. Some of his fights are the very ones BB has rallied for.

Women's RightsAndrew believes Florida must have Equal Pay for Equal Work
https://andrewgillum.com/issue/womens-rights/

Immigration Policies- As Governor, Andrew will continue to fight mass deportation policies that threaten to split families and hurt Florida’s economy.
https://andrewgillum.com/issue/immigration/

Environment- Andrew believes that the best way to address the impacts of climate change is to embrace a plan to transition Florida to clean energy as rapidly as possible. Achieving this goal will put us on a path to a completely clean energy economy, creating thousands of new jobs in Florida, and cleaner air and healthier families.
https://andrewgillum.com/issue/environment/

The list of issues he believes in are on his webpage- https://andrewgillum.com/issues/

Andrew_Gillum_background

Andrew believes in us, the people of Florida, because he is truly one of us.  Knows what working hard to adelantar is, the constant strive to get ahead, how family values and culture sustain us, and how together we can strengthen our communities.  And now a little ejemplo of how down to earth this man is.  Mira how pendiente and one of the people he is, when his car was in the shop he took an uber. Imaginate- the mayor, candidate for governor taking an Uber. And even more, the Uber driven by Sweetie. Si, Sweetie happened to be the one who picked up the ride. He said Andrew was very courteous,remembered Babushka  and sent his saludos. 


2017


An example of what I wish for The Grands. He encompasses all the aspirations BB wishes for her children, grandchildren, and her state. Un verdadero hombre, hecho y derecho. A self made man who knows who he is, what he stands for, ready to always strive for better- for himself and those he cares for. And Beautifuls, Andrew Gillum cares for all of us. 

From his Feibu page- About: Father of three. Proud Democrat. Mayor of Tallahassee and candidate for FL Governor. Working with you to rebuild a state that works for all of us.

Vieron?? ALL of us. Vote for anyone else? JU SO FONII!! 
Y por eso, because Babushka has seen it with her eyes, felt it with her heart,

Corazon & Caresses Over Cancer. 💗 #becauselove

#sponsored and special. via becauselove,
all opiniones are babushka's.
💞

ItsBecauseLove Journal & Blanket Cristyl's Corazon BBabushka

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!
In Babushka’s post God's Wicked Sense of Humor and Life Lessons with a Smile, BB shared how her daughter contracting cancer in many ways was a gift.  Naturalmente, there were some dias that it didn’t seem like it. For those moments an actual gift helped.

BecauseLove_Cancer_Journal

There are sometimes you just don’t want to speak. Even- especially to your madre. There are only so many times that as a madre you can say “Sometimes you have to get sick to get better.” “This too shall pass.” Quee??  Ok Si. A madre never tires of saying that, but her children may tire of hearing it. There are times they’d rather be solos, by themselves. Thinking, Being. Pero always knowing that anything they do is ok, that they are loved.

With these regalos from Because Love it’s easy to show your concern and  amor without having to verbalize it in person. Let’s be honestos; how many times have you been told about someone’s illness and all you can think of to say is “I’m so sorry.” Con estos you can say so much more, con thought y corazon. Be their comfort and strength when they know they need it.

Cafe & Carinos
Perfecto verdad? Arona Martin, founded Because Love in early 2018 after dealing with the loss of her close friend to cancer and was inspired to create a platform to help support others dealing with cancer treatment.  En sus palabras, her own words:


This project came directly out of my heart for a very dear friend, Jessica, who at age 31 years old, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Not knowing what else to do, and using my art therapy background, I bought a blank journal and filled it with all the love, sass, and glitter I could find – writing prompts, doodling prompts, get your anger out prompts, prompts to throw a crayon temper tantrum (on the page) – whatever would help her get through the battle of her life. She loved it, and often told me how much it helped her with all that she was going through day to day.

While sitting in waiting rooms and therapy bays, other women asked where they could buy one. She would tell me of these conversations and I would make a few more to give to these women. That is when I decided to pursue bringing the journal to market so that others could feel comforted and loved like Jessica did.


De dolor si puede venir Bellezas- Pain can bring Beauty.  And Strength, and Comfort. It has to Babushka’s first born, with the Because Love Bundle Pack, the journal & blanket.. Tambien the quality,materials, y varieties of these details help the magia in their momentos.
the LOVE HEALS journal is the gift that is as precious to give as it is to receive. more than pages in a book, this journal is a dialogue, a true conversation about the days filled with strength and the nights longing for that strength to return. it’s the perfect size (appx. 9x7) to carry in purse or backpack, and the exquisite design is lovely on a nightstand or desk.
Comes with:
  • over 160 journaling pages
  • 28 journaling prompts
  • 14 inspirational quotes and messages
  • 90 blank pages with space to write, draw, etc.
  • 2 metallic sticker sheets
  • 1 embroidered sticker sheet
  • 2 small envelopes (retail therapy, and inspirational words)
  • 3 gold paper clips tassels
  • silver glitter washi tape
  • 1 embroidered fabric bookmark with purple velvet backing and tassels
The cover is made with a luxurious and soft blush velvet with a gold metallic faux leather closure.
That was to warm their corazones, for the cuerpos, the Big Hug Lap Blanket.
Big HUG Lap Blanket

a luxurious grey knit lap blanket with glittering metallic thread to wrap the ones you care for in love. there are 31 knit holes for you to attach personal messages. make your own or use the 6 starter tags that are provided. it is the perfect size to fold up and fit in a purse, bag, or to carry on a long, hard journey. bring the BIG HUG everywhere!
Size: 28” x 40”*
Comes with:
  • BIG HUG lap blanket
  • 6 grey velvet back tags (4 grey grommet closures, 2 jewel closures)
To know they've received algo de calidad, de valor on many levels. This is love they will feel con todo their heart, in their very soul. They need this Beautifuls,they need to be shown their worth, just as we need a way to share our amor without having to be there in person.


And as if this wasn't enough, if daily inspiration is needed-

how to say, Life- JUSOFONII !!
Feibu Post 
Their IGrammyand Feibu accounts, like their products, son EXCELENTE. Mas que Bueno. Babushka is glad to have found a company that truly knows in all aspectos, what the pain of loving someone with cancer is and how it affects all involved. Should you need the words to convey, the corazon to carry on, Because Love is a digno dance partner. Porque al final, that's all we can do verdad?
