  Remembering Laurie

I know it sounds trite, but I'm more connected to my feelings. After all, over the past few years, I've had an in-your-face existence. There's less artifice in what I do and I can bring myself to the work more totally--not as an escape--but as an affirmation of being alive!

-Laurie Beechman, as quoted in TheaterWeek, 1995


Should your days be filled with storm,
Should your nights be chilled and windy-
Find yourself a rainbow
And let it sing you a medley of its colors

If it be too dark to find your way,
If the road be frightful and lonely-
Turn your eyes to the rainbow
And worry not where your feet should lead

Dare to embrace it with your heart
Surrender to its magical glow
Dance onward, entranced
Never looking down, never looking back

When the showers subside and the rainbow must fade
You might find by your side a pot of gold
Yet how much a treasure or a miracle
can be a monochrome object?

Celebrate the rainbow forever,
Let it live on in your heart
And you will always have a guide;
You will be richer than you'd ever dreamed

poem by Faith L. Burwasser, 1999
