Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Thursday, April 16, 2009

I am BACK to reality...I was away for almost 3 weeks and it was all worth it. I can't begin to tell you what a blast I had between promoting my poetry book, art and also spending time with friends and family. I don't even know where to start, but gladly I'll share pics of course.

One girlfriend I went to school with in Haiti, reunited after 24 years of not seeing each other.

My booksigning in Florida

Delaleu all bundled up on the Q train to Manhattan...hoooorray!!

My first poetry booksigning and art sale in Florida at Margate was such an eventful night, I will never forget it. It was the first time my father and his wife saw me perform on stage, including my cousins and aunt, my sister was also there and they were elated. Of course I took them by surprise with my sensual poems :) hehehehe
After the show, my father came up to me to say how proud he was. This was my first performance in almost 2 years, cause as many of you know, I had a stroke last May and had to move out of NY due to my battle with lupus. But, I've gained my strenght back, both spiritually and emotionally and with the support and love of my family and close friends. Sometimes, life bites you in the butt for a reason and only for a season in order to appreciate the moments you take for granted.
Mom and I at my cousin's wedding reception, it was a beautiful sunny day in Long Island

Reunited with friends I went to school with in Haiti over 20 years ago, I left Haiti at 13 years old, so it's been 24 years since I last saw those was a great reunion. I didn't sleep at all. We ate at a Cuban restaurant in Manhattan and stayed there close to three hours, chatting the night away.

Timesquare was a blast, I played tourist as if I've never been to NY or never lived there.
