UC Berkeley Lunch Poems 2014! Video Update


UPDATE – 10/30/2014

So, just in time to frighten myself and you all, the video was finally posted of the kick-off reading this past September. I’m towards the end, but the entire cast of folks were awesome, especially the Maya Angelou works. Hopefully, it’s worth a watch and a listen. Please forgive flubs and shakiness! The words f*cking nervous doesn’t even come close! :) My only solace is that the older I get, the more I resemble my mother, which makes me smile. It’s been 8 years since she’s gone to the other side, so I hope she’s proud!

Well, after years of saying no way, I took a chance at my first poetry reading. However, keeping with the event’s history and tradition, I didn’t read one of my own. I chose to read two favorite songs by Pearl Jam, as their songs are poetry to me.

Video to come, if it’s not too terribly embarrassing! :)

New Release!

It’s live, people, it’s live!

In pursuit of the goal to learn the ins and outs of independent publishing, I’ve taken the first step, finally. Check out the first release from Noruda Publishing, The Quest For A Warrior – Love Poetry Collection. Currently, it’s only available for all the Kindle devices or its various applications, but coming soon to the other retailers.

Check it out from my Author Central page, and send me a comment if you like!
