Improvise Your Life

Blog by:  Dionna Griffin-Irons

Life is about living, playing, being in the moment and giving yourself permission to play. I put these valuable tools to work in two of my favorite places -on the stage and in jail. (three places if you include the labor room.)

In return, I experienced a freedom I never imagined. This blog is about those truths and my seriously funny way to keep that best gift and give it back to you the reader, friend and fellow blogger.
