Sunday in the Park with Abby

| 1 Comment

On Sunday, I trekked to a different part of Brooklyn to go see my old friend and former improv coach Abby Sher. Abby lives on a beautiful street that is quintescential NY...lots of brownstones, lots of trees with autumn leaves--lovely. I hadn't seen Abby in a few years--not since we did Don't Spit at UCB over 3 years ago, and it was really lovely to spend a few hours with her and her adorable daughter Sonya.

The sweet and very wise Sonya.

Sonya and Abby
Two beautiful ladies.

We walked around the neighborhood catching up about life and love and the past few years.

Me and Abby
Here Abby is wearing her special "KOKO misses me TONS" shirt that my improv group KOKO made her after she moved back to NY from Chicago.

Abby just recently had her memoirs published, Amen, Amen, Amen, Memoir of a Girl Who Couldn't Stop Praying (Among Other Things). I just started it last night and it is wonderful, vibrant, and utterly heartbreaking. I can't put it down, yet I want to, cause it is hard to read about the pain and struggle that one of your loved ones has shouldered in her life. I highly recommend picking up a copy at your local bookstore.

Oh, Sonya is BEAUTIFUL! I'm so glad you got to see them both! I'm going to get Abby's book this week, but I know it's going to be hard to read.
