Had a fantastic turn-out to the reading last night. At least 50 people. Many of them were strangers, too -- and it's a shame we will probably never know exactly how they heard about us, because we didn't think to put out a sheet to sign up for more information, or something like that.
I really love reading out my stuff. I would have done it for an audience half the size, or a quarter. Or even less, tobe honest! I did 5 poems: "bird broken wing", "Alternative Lives, #1", "Magritte's Mother" (a work in progress I will post soon), "Uncle Dean" (that perennial favourite), and "Hole".
Unfortunately, I have no photos -- technical malfunction. A friend, Margit, suggested afterwards too that we should have made a recording.
Definitely something to consider for the next time.
