(NYC update) We won!

Just a quick update...ah I gave it away in the title....we won the Shorty Award for Art! YEAH! It was amazing...will give the full download later...so proud of all the poets and writer at One Stop Poetry and thankful so much for all the support from all of you.

Host by Aasif Mandvi from the Daily Show was hilarious. Met Jack Bauer (AKA Kiefer Sutherland), Miss USA, Jim Gaffigan, and Ali Velshi. My head is still spinning, if you cant tell.

Much love everyone!

While for the win congrats
But meeting Jack Bauer makes me go rats

We've had a two week spring break here, so I haven't been around the blogosphere much. Congratulations on your win. Wow! An old friend, Duncan Shields, was in NYC from Vancouver last year competing at a slam poetry event. My niece-in-law to be is another slam poet who goes by the name Magpie Ulysses - both are available to view on Youtube should you ever be interested!
