Live from New York...
So where am I? New York City! We drove up yesterday and have been enjoying the city in preparation for the Shorty awards on Monday night, where One Stop Poetry is up for the #arts award.
Last night we went to the Nuyorican Poetry Cafe for a poetry slam. For those that don't know what that means, think competition poetry performance that is very crowd interactive. We waited in line (in 30 degree weather) for 90 minutes just to get in the door. To hear poetry, how crazy is that eh?
It was the semifinals in determining who would represent the state of New York in the World Finals. They rocked my face off, sick good.
All this to say, sorry I was not around yesterday and I probably wont be around today either. Thank you to all of you that have supported One Stop and given me/us this opportunity. And for all of you that each day encourage me with your words.
See you tomorrow and maybe Monday I will post some pics of me and Keifer Sutherland (for you ladies), Ms America (for you guys) or Justin Beiber (for the kids). I look forward to the ones with some of my friends I met here in the blogosphere, whether we walk away with the award or not.
ps. for those that did not pick up on it yesterday, i am trading postcards for poems.
