An image from my #poetsinthewildnyc series for National Poetry Month
The past several weeks.. ETERNiDAY. IAM open mic. UNSTAGED. Latimer Lounge’s Creative Spark. Astoria Stand Up. Finally.. World of Words. And everything in between..
I just want to express how thankful I am – how humbled, thrilled, shaken, excited, inspired, pushed to the limits, broken open, floating on the wind.
So many people I’ve met and dear friends I’ve worked with in new ways.. Performing, dancing, hanging out, rehearsing, brainstorming, laughing, crying, celebrating, watching, marveling, jumping into the unknown.. It has all touched me so deeply.
Getting my hands dirty in everything..
This howling heart has been running, running, running so hard.
Now – back to basics. Viscerality. Collaboration. Exploration. The stage – anywhere and everywhere it erupts. Less typing, more doing. Smiling. Laughing. Time. Spending. Sweating. Burning.. Taking it back.
Reassessing. To move forward, forward, forward – always forward.
THANK YOU ALL for being a part of it.
So honored to announce I’ll be one of the hosts of Mike Geffner’s THE INSPIRED WORD open mic finally coming to Queens! Come see us – enjoy, perform, meet and be inspired by new friends – EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT 7-10pm starting May 7 (I’ll be featured performer, then hosting on May 14 & 28), at COFFEED (37-18 Northern Blvd), right off the 36th St stop on the M/R.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.. – m. oliver.
I. will. see. you. SOON.
Be infinite –
