sharronmatthews Gala Closing to a wonderful festival. I know I have said it before...but what an amazing thing to hang around in this community of tested and tried road warriors, watch them do their thing and then chat about the business. They welcomed me in with open arms! Pictured? On the left the fantastic HAMILTONIAN Patrick McKenna (I make this face because Tom Lee, from Hamilton always asks me if I see him out in the business and reminds me how successful he is...and he IS a wonderful dude...and wife Janis is a peach, as is his son Brendan) and Tazz Norris (Big Daddy Tazz) what an amazing set he did!! And so many people not pictured...Mary Walsh, Susan Kent, Cathy Jones, Harry Doupe, Tim Steeves...who I got to spend time on and off stage with. These are the kind of experiences I treasure...as a girl who spent glorious years in musical theatre...and then tried something new...being included in a group such as this is always a thrill and a joy! Thanks to @crackthecapital for having me!! 2d

sharronmatthews I have to say, before I fall back asleep for a spell, the thing that gave me pleasant pause after this amazing event last night was being surrounded by all of these iconic Canadian comedians who came to watch our show...and it was not just the wonderful fellowship that followed but at some point almost each one I spoke to casually shared a challenge that they have wrapped into their lives...ADHD, Bi-Polar Disorder, PTSD...and as a gal who has dealt with panic and anxiety for years, it is refreshing to hear successful artists sharing this information without fear or shame. Thanks to this wonderful event for highlighting and supporting Mental Health...and to it's artists for demonstrating what kind of life can be lived with mental challenges. #crackingupthecapital #weareallthesame #shamenomore @crackthecapital #gratitude 3d

sharronmatthews Things I really like: Canada. Canada on the train. Gigs that are fun and have social merit. A great travel partner/accompanist (@markselby NOT pictured...I did not want to bug him...he is watching a video). This check shirt. A sunny day. Adventure. Possibility. The day after my roots have been done. A fresh mani/pedi for $30!!!! (And it is a good one...) Things I miss, even for a day: George. Buckingham. Also, obviously NOT as important but I still miss it for a day...lip balm. Oh...and The illusion of control. #Viarail #musings #ilovethetrain #exceptforthewifi #beautifulday #thinkswithmusic #gratitude 4d

sharronmatthews Dear Universe, Yes...it is not #tbt or #fbf but how about #checkthishitouttuesday ? Nunsense. 1992. Muskoka Festival. This features a kookoo cast of characters here! Susan Greenfield, Sara Dickenson, Michael Maclennan, Steve Pitkin, Steve Thomas with pornstache...and David James...who JUST became my friend of FB...which is why I am featuring it!! I cannot remember (and please forgive me...I am old) the names of our fierce as eff stage manager. Missing from this picture (sadly) is Barb Mantini!! 1992. Holy fuck. I remember this summer was a lot of fun. I also remember that I sand the best version of "Do Right" I have ever sang at the Atherly Arms karaoke night...attended by us and three of four disgruntled locals. 7d
