This past weekend, I had the honor of attending a poetry workshop with Afaa Weaver, beautiful person, wonderful poet and profound teacher. We did a couple of exercises and looked at each others' work. The Gibbous Moon Collective hosted the workshop, and afterwards, we all headed to Sam's BBQ for dinner. Good times, indeed.

I'm on the road for the next couple of weeks. Heading to Kansas City for Creating Change - NGLTF's yearly conference. There will lots of great people there. And I hope that in addition to a book signing, I'll be doing some sort of open mic with the folks of color...maybe Thursday night.

After Sunday, it's onto NYC for me. Old haunts and all. I'm really excited to see people and to participate in a couple of events. GC was kind enough to offer her home for a book party. I'm really looking forward to that.
