Featured Iron Butterfly: Joshua Levy


You have read several stories by the dynamic and enthusiastic Joshua Levy, Executive Director of Joshua’s Stage. Three years ago we learned about his organization, Joshua’s Stage, which is a premiere performance center for children ages 3 to 18 and adults with a wide range of special needs. Last month he shared his perspective on the polar vortex in his hometown of Austin, TX.

Joshua’s world view tends to be optimistic in every way. However, like most of us, he too, has times when he experiences fear about the future and takes time for introspection. Today, he reflects on “…and it would have been enough for us” during the Passover holiday.

As always, he gives us some “stage directions”  to help himself, and us, move forward.

Let’s keep flying forward with Joshua!!!
