last night i read my poetry at Steeps Open Mic Night. it was a great night to read in front of such a warm tea drinking audience filled with other poets and musicians. my friend took this picture of me. there i sat enjoying the rest of the night's entertainment. i find it very inspiring to sit and listen to other artists. after last night i am seriously thinking about picking up a guitar. like i need to add anything else to my list. nonetheless it would definitely bring some life into my poems and songs. next year... because the waiting list is that long... Steeps will be presenting my artwork for a month! i just got confirmation today and i can not tell you how excited i am.
