THE ONES THAT MEAN THE MOST

by PJ Walsh on February 28, 2015

Last night I did a show at a cabin in the woods for 14 Purple Heart recipients who were on a weekend hunting retreat. I feel like I’ve done pretty much every kind of show, but this was my very first just standing in a living room next to a warm fireplace while a group of burly dudes in camo spread out rounds of ammo as they sat at a kitchen table or living room chairs.
As a performer I’d say the “conditions” were not the best. Ha. As a person I was truly inspired by my audience. They could not have been cooler to some guy (me) who showed up, stood up and started talking. Trust me they’d much rather had a stripper and I completely agreed she’d have been a more welcomed performance. But good luck getting a woman to drive over an hour into a mountain to meet a bunch of dudes in a cabin… even I was getting a Deliverance vibe by the tail end of my travels.

I’ve noticed over the years that the performances that mean the most to me are the ones that have me really thinking on my way home. The ones that stay with me, make me ponder, and possibly help me grow somehow. Last night I witnessed a group of men bust their asses to take care of a group of men who’d risk their asses with consequence. The hosts were determined to make sure these guys were having a great time. The guys themselves all smiled, laughed, gave each other and myself sh*t while being polite, fun and thankful. That doesn’t happen everyday.
I say this often: The world I see presented in front of me on/in the news or social media is not the one I experience. It’s a pity that anger and harsh opinions are more likely to infect our society’s information cycle than to create inspiration and thoughtfulness. Because my drive home last night was filled with the latter and it’s one I won’t forget for all the right reasons.
Thank you, gentlemen.

2015: HOPEFUL NEW YEAR

by PJ Walsh on January 1, 2015

Here’s to the coming year being less polarizing, dehumanizing & argumentative. I’ve witnessed news and social media present a far from accurate representation of the individuals I meet daily across my country and around our world. May those rise who inspire, touch, and amaze.
Much Love, Peej

When we travel to certain areas we’re here/there […]

VETERANS DAY: AWARENESS

November 11, 2014

Being a Veteran for me is a constant knowledge that out there right at this moment service members are in harm’s way, living in discomfort, far from home and those they love. Individuals who’ve made an oath and sacrifices and shoulder/execute the unimaginable. It’s seeing my own young eyes wearing a uniform. Taking to heart […]
