Way back in August 2015, Lisannette Adelaida Dawson-Ruiz told a story that truly encompassed the "Detours" theme -- a story about the detours offered by personal choices and the uncertainty of life, and how those detours sometimes turn out the be the path you should have been walking all along. From Lisannette's Odyssey bio:
Lisannette Adelaida Dawson-Ruiz hails from the Bronx, New York. In 2007, bored with the constant strain of not be being able to afford a living, she randomly moved to Tempe, AZ in search of adventure and self. She met her future wife and followed her to Tucson when she got laid off during the recession. Now, she's a Tucson convert in love with sites and sounds of the city and its vibrant culture, she's built a lovely nest on the southside with Robyn, and their kitties, Aladdin and Jasmine. When Lisannette's not super busy with her epic social life, she enjoys volunteering for local non-profits such as the Body Love Conference, and salsa dancing, especially with the university's Rueda de Casino Club.
This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, Arizona, on August 6th, 2015, and was curated by Carolyn Langford Hussein Fort. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
