After yesterdays great time of rehearsal it was only right that it continued to day. I woke up had a breakfast and went to the “Freestylerz min Summer get Together.” As artist there are times when we enter places our expectations are to find large groups. I sat with the host Keisha and we vibed on everything from politics to poems. Beautiful conversation starting in Brooklyn ending in the UK swaying into how she loves her community and trying to give outlets of encouragement involving many to finally find their voice.. Halfway into this conversation another young lady walk in and it just add more brightness to a beautiful conversatio. Lynn showed that she was a ball of energy and Keisha balanced this as in the same since as there interaction was like two sisters never skipping a beat. A former school teacher and a published poetLynn was not one to want to talk about herself but her humble beginning is a great spark to help me in wanting to try and become a published poet as well. There you have it three of us talking,vibing and able to share thoughts without feeling restricted on time. In the end one of us wasclosing a chapter and beginning a new in a foreign land while the others continue to blosom here. I say this with understanding that as artist we are dreamers and believers to another level. Our words speak volumes on paper as well as in the existence of the air and Keisha and Lynn i want to thank you for an intimate play on words and i hope to someday hear outside of little space to see others take in the power you revere.. Thank You
Yesterday was the beginning of rehearsal that almost didn’t happen. For a few days I was trying to contact someone over at 1812 to let them know we have the check for the studio and to see if someone was going to be there. I never received an email or call to reaffirm because I already had the dates time and cast coming I figured I’d rake a chance on someone being there. It was hot as all but an easy travel but when I got to the building it was dark and my feelings and emotion went into panic mode. Inch by inch step by step as I got closer my emotions were running high and then boom the door opened and rehearsal was on!
