Firstly: how amazing is this icon? VERY. Unfortunately, I have no idea who made it or where the cat haikus are from. Still: AMAZING AND TRUE.
However, I actually logged on to talk about the Poetica Poetry and Knitting event I attended tonight. It was better and had larger audience than I expected (yes, I am a 'glass half empty' kind of person). It was, of course, still a relatively small event with roughly 30-40 people in attendance including 10 of us who were reading.
I read the second so didn't have too long to be nervous. I read Kaleidos and in babylon they laugh with broken teeth, and in doing so, to an audience, remembered again how much I used to love acting. And this is kind of like that except better because it's my own words.
Oh performance high, I have missed you.
Anyway, it was a really good night. I spoke to quite a few people, received (and gave!) compliments and got poached into some experimental poetry workshop, which I think I will check out as invited.
