I headed over the river to take part in an open mike at the Library, basically to get out of the apartment during a very, very slow time in my schedule. It seemed to be more of a spoken word session with various poets reading their works. It was refreshing to play a tune or so in this situation.
I decided to do Jelly in the Dish and it worked really well and was a nice break from the poetry. The audience was quite responsive and enjoyed the interaction. As we went around a second time, I did It’ll Be Me since it features some nice imagery, though I didn’t nail it like I should have. I guess I was thinking too much.
It was a good break from the norm, and I delighted in surprising some new folks.
