Words for spring and summer…

STAY WILD – one shot from the “world as notebook” series – more here

Ladies & gents!

Been a long winter (doesn’t it always seem that way…?) but I am ready for spring and summer in full force.

You must not fear, hold back, count or be a miser with your thoughts and feelings. It is also true that creation comes from an overflow, so you have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness. The fullness is like a tidal wave which then carries you, sweeps you into experience and into writing. Permit yourself to flow and overflow, allow for the rise in temperature, all the expansions and intensifications. Something is always born of excess: great art was born of great terrors, great loneliness, great inhibitions, instabilities, and it always balances them. – Anaïs Nin

And so – thus! Here are some wonderful things I would be so honored to see any of your beautiful presences at in the coming months…

Reading at REZ Reading Series, March 7 – So happy to be reading at the re-launch of this Kew Gardens series! Here’s their Facebook page and a new article about the history of the series and plans for the future.

(APRIL IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!)

NATURE OF THE MUSE, April 4 – My reading and live writing event RETURNS! Celebrate the end of winter and invoke spirits of warmth for spring, one more time by the fire at LIC Bar – can’t wait! Featuring local writers: Aida Zilelian-Silak, Tim Fredrick, Joe Yoga, and Greg Kirkorian with special guests Siobhan O’Loughlin and Tam Lin/Paul Weinfield, music & more! 7:30pm, more details here.

Hosting at Boundless Tales Reading Series, April 18 – One of my favorite things to do ;) I hosted for Boundless‘ founder Aida twice last summer and am reprising the role – my participation in this series has led to so many amazing friends, opportunities, and connections and I am forever grateful and thankful to be a part of it!

Reading at Oh, Bernice!, April 20 – Another relatively new reading series in Queens – Oh, Bernice mixes it up and has a great following! Further details soon (general info is here), but I’m excited to be reading for them in April.

Coney Island Oasis event, May 11 – New frontiers! Designer/gift shop maven/Coney Island royalty Miss Lola Star and I are teaming up to bring an oasis to the Coney Island beach this summer! All free – featuring a yoga class taught by the amazing Dina Ivas (who has just embarked on an adventure in fitness fashion blogging!), spoken word, music – and a vegetarian potluck! All on the beach to kick off the summer in one of my all-time favorite places in NYC. More deets to come!

Hosting at Boundless Tales Reading Series, June 20 – AGAIN! :)

Reading at NYC Poetry Festival, July 27/28 – And speaking of.. I am so, so HONORED to be reading at the Poetry Society of New York’s NYC Poetry Festival (!!!!!!) on Governor’s Island thanks to Boundless Tales! Aiming to rep Queens and make ’em proud!

I PROMISE there will be more surprises in between in the coming months.

Don’t let anyone impose their limits on you. Be free, be you. Create in the spirit of love and bask in the warmth of possibility…

With gratitude always,

XO a.
