My Rockstar Moment


I recently discovered GPP Street Team, Michelle Ward's inspiring blog of creative challenges. I intend to join in on the challenges as they happen in the future, but first I think I'll catch up a little on the archives. So here is my Rockstar Moment. This is a couple of years back when I was one of only two poets performing at the music stage at the Meadows Festival, Edinburgh's best community festival (sadly the festival has had troubles recently and didn't really happen last year and may not happen again). It was slightly surreal but great fun to be on stage between two excellent local rock bands! It was also very sunny, hence the shades!
Since GeL asked, here are links to a couple of the poems I performed. I'll add more if I can, though some of the poems I performed aren't online:
I don't think I'm famous, but I've been stopped in the street on more than one occasion and recognised in restaurants.....

WOW!! I've always wished I could carry a tune, I'd love to sing. What a great moment. Are you going to do some of the other older challenges? I've wanted to do her "Crusades" since the first one, but procrastinated about it. I think I'm going to do all of the others ones, so I'LL feel like I've "caught up" :0) Thanks for the comment!!

HI Kristal, thanks for visiting. Wish I could carry a tune too, I was performing poetry there! I'm hoping to do some of the other older challenges - certainly the playlist challenge has given me some ideas and I may do that several times!

If/when I remove my cloak of anonymity, I may have to still keep my shades on all the time...to cover..well,I'm zipping my fingers. You look at ease. Which poem did you read? Can you put the link here or email me it? Thanks
