While recording my latest vlog I started talking about my latest Spiritual Evolution. This blog is a personal exposition about Awakening.
I was depressed, my foot was broken I was in a big clunky boot. I took the opportunity to learn how to be creative while injured. The answer was making Zines!
Zines are a really exciting creative outlet. I can push myself in both writing and designing pages. There is no right or wrong way to create a zine. There is the act of creating itself.
One of my passions is reading/performing poetry, spoken word, the words I write. While delving into the culinary world took me away from the microphone, I’ve finally found my way back.
It’s been a slow re-entry, with an introduction into the modern world of zine life back in 2015, and after having a few pieces published in a Phoenix zine, I decided to step back into Poetry Open Mics.
I celebrated National Poetry Month in April by recording and sharing “A Poem A Day” on YouTube. For the last few poems, I went out to a lake/park, just for a change of pace. I also decided to make a vlog out in nature.
Recently I took part in National Poetry Month (April). For some poets, the idea behind NPM is to write a new poem a day and publish it on one of the many platforms available. I decided to take a different path. I made a video poem a day from the extensive collection I’ve written over the years and posted these videos on my YouTube channel. That meant creating 30 individual video poem, one for each day of the month.
