END OF AN ACT
I'm back from beautiful St. Lucia and wanted to share with you some memories from my last poetry event "Poetry in 2 Acts" What a week that was, so I never had the time to sit down and write!
It was a cold night in February, but friends and well-wishers came to share their time and offer support for "Poetry in 2 Acts". My friend Terri-Ann, the lovely mezzo-soprano, set the stage for the evening with her wonderful rendition of the negro spiritual"Nobody Knows". I continued with poems expressing both visible and invisible pain, loss, rejection, identity and love. Alex, my guitarist friend, was there again to accompany me in poetry performance.
And the best surprise of the night was Jada, Alex's daughter, who I invited to provide us with an impromptu jazz rendition.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support this fundraising event, and to those who, even if they were not able to attend, supported this effort in other ways. Enjoy some of the photos from that night!
