Hi Hi Hi!
I’ve been away, for two weeks performing poetry, it was dream come true for me, I sold a bunch of books, and I want to tell you all more about it but, I’ve been soooo busy! In the mean time read up on our last show, it got a write up from the Long Beach Post.
“If Hernandez tells you that he doesn’t remember much of the evening, you can assure him that he kicked butt. Literally. His posterior jokes drew belly laughs from the more than 250 people who attended the Sister Spit spoken word showcase at the Icehouse on Saturday evening.”
This was our last show, and I think one of our best shows, Los Medanos College was also incredible. It was tough, a really tough show for me because early that morning at like early in the am I think, I went to the ER and had the most painful 8 hours of my life. I’m fine, I think, (if you’re super curious, I don’t know, and the lovely Kaiser doctors also said “We don’t know, what happened to you.” so no need to ask) But after the ER I was only able to lie down for an hour, shower, and then we went to the show. I was delirious, still feeling the morphine, drained, exhausted, but I told my self the show must go on, and when I thought about sitting the last show out, I thought, life is short, what if this is the last time you get to perform poetry, just go up there. And I did, and I think my set went really well.
“As to what caused Baruch’s medical detour, he figured it had something to do with his addiction to donuts.”
LOL! I do remember saying something like that.
