How are you?
I hope you're good and life is treating you well, but that you're treating yourself even better!
Okay, so a few months ago, I announced that I'd be taking a break from performing for a while, whilst I sorted a few things out and tried to get myself back on track. Well, I have sorted a few things out, messed up a few others, half written some new material, thrown away both old and new material, been to a lot of poetry events, seen a lot of talented artists, co-run Rum Punch and Poetry in the Park with my Partna in Rhyme, Saran Green, as well as devise a plan for a new event (shhhh, it's still a secret), painted the town Pink and Black with the ONiT! logo and decided to hit the performance stage again with a vengeance!
What ARE you on about? I hear you ask... Well, I'm blogging to let you know that I'll be back on the performance circuit as of October 2010. I had a semi-decent break (doesn't feel like it was a break, but hey!) and now I'm good to go!
I can excitedly tell you, that I've agreed to do CLOSE UP with Comfort - Art without Apology, which I am ULTRA nervous about, even though it's not until 10th November!! MANDiNKA, you have a lot to answer for! LOL If you've never been to a CLOSE UP before, it's a live showcase, with band, featuring a main artist - almost like a mini concert - supported by a selection of additional artists. Please save the date... I have a surprise in store (which I can't tell you about yet) - you'll be glad you did!
Tonight, we have the return of Rum Punch, the monthly invigorating blend of entertainment, at Rudys Revenge, which I'm really, really excited about, and on Sunday, I'll be taking part in the 5k Adidas Challenge. All people keep asking me is "How's the training going?" to which I stare back at them, with a vacant expression... I'm hoping it's been a rhetorical question! LOL
Also in the exciting (Black History) month of October, I shall be participating in some very interesting events that I'm simply honoured to be able to be part of.... watch this space!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot! Last week, I was filmed by Wize Entertainment for a new feature called Poet's Lounge - check out the video:
Well, that's all for now... I'm broken! Off to bed so I can make sure I can get up for work in the morning.
