It certainly is challenging keeping up with a blog. Recently I have been working on illustrations for a long poem that I hope to release as a book. It is the retelling of the original Little Mermaid tale. I am ecstatic to say that the images are done! In the New Year I will tackle publication.
Last Saturday was the wonderful raffle and poetry reading at Out of the Blue gallery. Chad, Tom and Lynn worked very hard to make it the success it was. If you haven’t stop by the gallery, do so now! It is a wonderful resource!! I read at 1PM. The set went very well and my good friend Paul accompanied me on the Middle Eastern drum (see picture on Performance page). Unfortunately, the crowd was small; none of the people I invited attended. But when that happens, you must treat the small audience with love and courtesy and give the best show you are capable of! It was a kind and attentive audience!
I look forward to the start of the New Year, and my break from the day job. The first item on my to do list to write a new novel. I am a little nervous, as it has been a while since I started a long writing project, but in the middle of the butterflies is the delicious sensation of excitement. Happy Holidays and success in the New Year!
