Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Monday, March 12, 2007

Hello Everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather was nice, upper 50's and the sun was blessing us with its rays so I couldn't complain. On my way to work this morning I rushed to the newstand and grabbed myself the April issue of Essence Magazine to see if my name is really on it. If you all get yourself a copy, my poem "Morning Birth" is on page 187 of Essence, with my name "Cathy Delaleu". I was jumping up and down as if I won the lottery and I showed the street vendor the magazine, "Hey, i'm famous!" I shouted. He looked at me with this New York nonchalant attitude.

This is a great way to start the spring.

The poem is not in my book so you will need to get yourself a copy of Essence :) hehehehe and my next poem which will be featured by them again is "Confused Being" on page 119 of my poetry book.

Well, well, well... my famous friend. This calls for a celebration. Fritay ak kola lakay pou tout moun!! LOL

I'm very proud of you my dear.

PS: Your script is burning! Wouldn't it be nice if it came out in December at the same time as my second book? After all, "l'union fait la force!"

Hooray! Celebrate the day, the year a life ;) This is very exciting! I smiled imagining you celebrating on the street with the vendor secretly in awe. Congratulations! Yes, you are not sleeping, no need to pinch yourself, just keep writing...

Fabrizio said...

I'd fly to the Big Apple just to buy Essence, Cathy!
These are great news!

Hi Cathy,

It's charming. I like the grandiose images. My perspective seems to be from some point high above ground. Interresting.
