Live the #LovePowerLife
This past week was great especially from a creative standpoint. Monday I linked up with my homeboy Reice to bounce some writing ideas off of each other. It was a lot of fun to share ideas because we appreciate the same type of humor and have know each other for a while so there's a nice comfort level. I got to do the same thing on Tuesday night with a new acquaintance named Clint which was very refreshing because I usually don't share my ideas with strangers unless forced to do so (don't judge I'm shy;)) He had a lot of great ideas as well. He invited me to his improv troupe's rehearsal on Thursday, and let me tell you, I NEEDED that. Just to get on my feet and play with other actors is always a treat for me. Friday I was in studio with my homegirl Leniea recording the first two episodes of the podcast FlavorPhillia on Studio C Radio that we will be co-hosting together. We did a lot of interviews and during which I ran into an old M.A.C. co-worker of my Stefani and caught up with her a little. She's doing awesome stuff with her company Lost Blvd. I'm so happy and proud of her. Later Friday night I was supposed to see fellow thespian Sir Irving Williams' play The Messengers but my assistance was needed at UrbArts because it was the opening of Billy Bill's exhibit "Freedom AIn't Free 2" , STL Poetry Slam right after and the 1st Friday Art Walk in Old North was happening simultaneously so we where packed to the gills. I finished my weekend festivities off on Saturday night by attending Ngoma at UrbArts. They were celebrating Black History Month with music (fabulous drumming), poetry, history, great food and vendors. It was really nice. I slept in and relaxed after that busy week that left me excited about creating more works, which I worked on a few poems (gearing up for Idris Goodwin's event on Thursday) and pulled out my hip kit to practice. I needed this creative jump start. I think I'm going to find one weekly external creative outlet to keep things going because I do thrive being around other creatives.
What kinds of things are your creative catalyst? Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear about it.
Spread Love. Be Love. Live a #LovePowerLife
Ever since I was young, I wanted to make a difference in the world. As an activist at heart and a flower child of sorts, my mom would constantly ask me "where did you come from?"-haha! Now that I'm older I have a clear understanding and I'm confident to say that I come from LOVE.
