Next Wed. I have committed to slamming in the first White Plains Public Library Slam of the season. After that, I will be attending a choir rehearsal every Wed. starting Oct 8 until the end of June and I will so miss the marvelous community of folks I have met over the incredible 14 years of this poetry series. This seasonal music gig as a paid mezzo/alto in a church is my only job right now and I cannot afford to not go back. I do enjoy the work, just wish rehearsal was some other night. Rehearsal gets out at 9:30 p.m. or so. I will head right to Molten Java from there and try to catch the very tail end of Q&A.
I plan to take up the slack by going to other poetry events around the area and to music open mic nights at several local venues.
