Spoken word performance, story telling, word play. There is something magical that happens when I am up there at the microphone, looking out into a packed room of language lovers and fellow writers. The gratitude that I feel when I am reading my work aloud to an audience, is so immense that sometimes I have trouble getting the words out…but the words eventually come, the breath, the living sounds, the light…all of the reasons why I’d written that story come flooding back and I want to share it with everyone!
