A major milestone

by Radio Somewhere

Well, I finally did it! At the beginning of the year I made a promise to myself that I would do an open-mic at a poetry/storytelling meeting. I found a local group and attended a meeting last month, not to read, but just to listen. It was pretty amazing, and I spent the last few weeks summoning the courage to have a go myself – and did so last night. There were some rather talented and seasoned poets in the lineup, but the audience was very forgiving of my neophyte effort. After getting the butterflies in my stomach to fly in formation, I rather enjoyed myself as I read just the one poem:
You Think It Will Last (set in Seattle, by the way.) I’m very happy to have this milestone behind me:)
