As I write this, I am sitting in a local coffee house on open mike night...or rather morning, as it's now past midnight.
I came here to use the WiFi for a few minutes, to have a cup of tea. That was two hours ago. The music and poetry have kept me in my seat, fascinated with the words and music before me. Such a gift I am giving myself tonight, sitting here, listening.
Why do I forget how much my soul craves live music and poetry, letting weeks, sometimes even months go by without a night like this?
Some of the performers.... JWordsmith, Crystal, Jester. Most of them on MySpace. All of them here, sharing their music and poetry.
Such a gift I am giving myself.
