boneverse: (cat haikus)

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.

It sounds like a really good night hun and I'm so glad you are going forward with your poetry.

*sticks tongue out* Whaaaaaat? I loved the buzz you get from doing theatre, but just don't have the time to get involved with that atm (rehearsals are incredibly time-consuming).

Thank you for being all supportive and encouraging <3

mmmm, performance high. nothing gives me the feel of scary superhuman omnipotence like performing to an audience. *___*

I hear you. I used to do amateur theatre several years ago and loved it, but just don't have the time to get involved with that at the moment (thesis writing and rehearsals just wouldn't work together...) But! Poetry reading totally feels like it's going to fill this hole :D

It was really good. I think poetry reading is something I could easily get addicted to.

So, so glad it went well!!

The icon is fabulous though I think they culd have slowed it down a little. I'm a fast reader and I'm still struggling... I shall save it and play it on Fireworks.

Thank you, it was an enjoyable experience.

Yeah I know, it took me a couple of cycles to read them all properly...
