This month I have been able to perform at some events I found out about last year but haven’t been able to make it to so far. I was lucky enough to be offered a lift part way to this venue, which I was glad of, especially after the Ludlow journey the night before.
This event is held monthly at the Centre of Oneness and has a spiritual element to the proceedings. There was a mixture of poetry, prose and songs, it was a good night. I shared my poems about San Francisco, the theme was New Horizons and this is the city in which I found mine!
At the end of the evening we feasted on home-made samosas which were lovely.
We were even allowed to take a doggy bag home!
A great event, a good trek out to it plus an hours worth of de-touring and touring (the town centre) looking for the venue. If you live in Shropshire, well worth checking out! Deborah and Jean’s plan is to make it bi-monthly, although there are some Much Wenlock Literature Festival events happening soon too, in the same venue. The next Poetry Lounge in The Sitting Room.
Great to listen to such a mix of poetic voices, we had 9 treats of a set to listen too. My set went well, despite a traumatic journey (where I forgot even the poems I had chosen!)
Deborah Alma and Jean Atkins, perfect hosts who both made me feel very welcome.
In 2013 I started to hope that by the end of the year I would have 600 blog members… it has taken an extra couple of weeks – but BANG! We are followed by over 600 people! DELIGHTED! Welcome to the waters of the fountain, make yourselves at home.
