Thursday Round-up

I’m still aglow from last night’s SPEAK UP! reading at Tatiana's Restaurant. It may have been the most fun I’ve had reading my work. (Well, the launch party ranks #1, but this was a close second.) The audience was full of storytellers, so it was more like a conversation than a poetry reading. I’ve never had a group clap after each poem. And when I read “Sex and Pizza,” a gentleman gave me a pizza box!

Tony Toledo runs the SPEAK UP! readings and open mike, and is a fine storyteller in his own right. He does an amazing job of cultivating the creative community—this is a reading series I encourage you to seek out. Thanks Tony!

And, for those of you wondering what underlife means … The word underlife has been listed with Urban Dictionary for four years, but now it has a new definition.


Yes, I am redefining language! *smile*
