amazing year, new goal

I honestly have been living my list. This is why I've been slacking on posts. But... I have a new goal to add...

I have spent the last few months doing the artist thing...and loving every minute of it, but... My new goal...

I want to do a feature set at Nuyorican in 2014. So, I added it to the list. The universe has honestly been working out some amazing things. I am already 5 features in for 2014. And I'm working hard to get better at this poetry thing. I never knew I would love this life this much.

So, NYC get ready for Genius...

Where Have You Been...

Haven't forgot about you friends... I've been working on several of the things on my list.

1. I am 2/3 of the way through a 30/30 (tried in November and failed miserably, but restarted in April during National Poetry Writing Month)

2. I'm in the last stages of attempting to make a National Poetry Slam team-- my last shot is coming up in about a week and a half. This is what I've been doing most of the time I've been away since it required a lot of travel

3. I am in the last stages also of finishing off my first book of poetry--should be done by next month (fingers crossed)

4. After a really awesome conversation with a friend the other day--I've inspired him on his list and he has inspired me, so I'll do better with keeping up the blog (which was on the list)

Meanwhile... I will leave you with a few pics from last night. I won tickets to a Living Colour concert--which wasn't on the list, but DEFINITELY inspired some new poems and ideas.

(Can you believe these dudes are still killin' after 25 years!)
