Well, last week was Pride week in Halifax and I was super gay.
Lesbian robot sex on stage after weird and hilarious skit
Dressing up and singing an Annie Lennox song, with back up singers! (No more I love yous… those high notes were high but audience members assured me I did a good job, I supposed it worked fine, in Tanya Davis style, when I just breathed the high notes instead of actually hitting them
All of the cute gay boys that made me wish I was a gay boy!
Plays at the Queer Acts Theatre Festival
Rding my motorcyle around town.. oh, wait, that wasn’t a part of pride week.
Performing my new pride poem in front of the mass of people gathered after the parade
Going down the giant blown up pirate ship slide! 6 times! The first adult ride I have been on in years! Amaaaaazing!
And now it is just another week and there is just some more construction outside my door
and I am justanother poet waking up on a monday wondering what to do and what it is for
I should write lists on sunday nights instead of monday AM’s
But, still, I had a nice time at the coffee shop planning to plan things
Watching my pen move across paper like it had an important task to do
Trying to remember that time is just time and I don’t need to run so fast. Meditation helps, a bit.
Last night I had some fresh air and then played the piano for a long time. I recorded blips on my phone that I hope to go back to
turn them into songs
and then I started a new one on the guitar about fidelity,
spurred on by a beautiful married woman
and also flirtation
and the nature
and how we pass tension
back and forth
like it’s a dish to savour
yes please, more please
There are no clouds in Halifax skies today
my motorcycle is running fine
and there are lakes nearby
and probably I will put myself in one
The bicycle beckons as well
either way it’ll be me and two wheels and a body of water
After some more planning, that is
after a bit of poem-writing
spurred on by life’s poetry
and also some granola
and some house-cleaning
In an effort to remember that life is happening all the time
and not just in my dayplanner
I have vowed to do one house task a day
to settle in
to keep my feet on the ground
Yesterday I clipped the lawn (I can only afford a weed wacker, not a mower, so it is a slow process…)
Today maybe I will re-pot that plant that is falling over
Oh, summer, you’re so good
Also, I commited myself to a fringe play here in Halifax in early September!
So I will work on that. I mean, it’s not a play, per se. But it’ll be something
OK, random randomness
What is this blog about?
It is representative of my current state of mind – scattered, many focuses (focii?), high on coffee…
