AWESOME poetry and music, an intimate community of words that connect like fibers to the heart and latte to the spirit! Open mics follow featured readings.

All shows, part of
Kiss The Earth
Environmental advocacy and awareness to calamity disaster relief action in my home country of the Philippines. My organization, Traveling Bonfires, helps a far-flung community in the northern province/s. Please come to the show with a little keepsake (books, canned goods, knick-knacks etc).

I hope to get my book, "Red is the Color of my Night" out before spring. But I have chapbooks and a CD, too. Meantime, I will be in Myrtle Beach from Oct 20th to 27th... This little writing saga and the road chase of the muses of plumes... Any poetry open mics in town, where I could share some of my words? And probably book a show with local singer-songwriters in the coming months? I'd like to open for musicians or be the intermission number. I can be funny, too—when I am not trying to. Or I can share my culinary magic, as well--like I can make a wok disappear, and then surface a honey glazed salmon in front of you on a sizzling plate! Ha! (But you need to produce the wine, yourself...)

Find me and both Mind Gravy and Monday Night Poetry & Music on Facebook.
