Hello Blog Family,
Well, as you know, my art show and sale was last Saturday. It turned out ok, about
19 people showed up, it was a first-time success and great networking with people in the AZ area. It's so diverse here, reminds me a little of NY but less stressful, of course. Although, I didn't have much sales I had a great time with my guests who got to eat and dance to Haitian and Salsa music, lol. They polished the floor all night until 11pm.
I had a friend of the family make the yummy lemon cake, he said it took him 4 days to prepare and he refused to give me the recipe, it was sooooooooooo delish and huge, lol. I put the rest in the freezer. As for food, I had appetizers from fried griyo which is fried pork, turkey meatballs, fried plantains, salad, chips and nachos.
I had 2 art tables, everything looked really nice. Didn't get a chance to take any extra pictures, was too busy entertaining. I plan to have another show in the spring...
Sorry but I can’t
Don’t make me choose…
Cause I won’t
Thanks to those lyrics I’m able to take away the bad feelings
Why carry such negativity like a cadaverous face ravaged and brittle by osteoporosis?
Without lyrics you’ll leave my hips broken
My brain will shrivel
Even my walk will look funny
I’ll be the only one pigeon-toed with an overflowing beltline
No mental or intellectual lines
artless I will be
A murderous death, my suicide
With my lyrics I’m the painter
the philosopher, a rhythmic thinker
You can’t carry my cross
Its all mine, it’s in me
The day those lyrics touched me
I was rattled and survived
I will say it again I won’t choose
Without it I will die
