so….this weekend i did my first spoken word!
i did my usual writing in my cafes, reading for my new class, and a bit of work of course as well, as well as spent a lovely time perusing the junk stores and eating a killer burger, but the best of the best was definitely getting out there with one of my favorite bloggers for the first time and standing in front of a mic at the local cafe.
these are photos of some of those whose words, music, artistry we were able to experience. it was quite humbling being up there. just the act of saying the words, opening myself up to the audience, being that vulnerable, was tremendous. my throat caught with emotion at the end as i felt it all stirring inside me. it was good, it was comforting.
and like an awesome roller coaster, i can’t wait to go again!
