Defying Gravity

Last night at my weekly performance at Marlena’s Bar in San Francisco I performed a number that has been in my head for a very long time.  In previous months my daughter, Victoria Glass, and I have performed the sentimental song For Good (from Wicked) for the crowd and it is always a pleaser.  This time we tackled the high emotion of Defying Gravity.

Now you may wonder why this drag queen is rambling on about a number from a drag show.  I always try to perform things that say something……Defying Gravity has a message in it that is so strong and really is the theme of the Broadway smash hit.  It talks about not letting anything get you down.  In our current world and climate this is extremly important to remember.  NOTHING should ever hold us back or bring us down from reaching for our goals and dreams.

My favorite line in the song is…..

I’m through accepting limits
”cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!
Too long I’ve been afraid of
Losing love I guess I’ve lost
Well, if that’s love
It comes at much too high a cost!

This is soooooo true.  So as you go about your day and get ready to start your work week – please remember – It doesn’t matter if you are a good witch or a bad witch you still can Defy Gravity in your life!  You can do it by bubble, broom or any other way – Just Do It!
