Back to basics

So I’m trying to rest my voice today. Hopefully I can keep from using it.

Yesterday I went to see my art teacher from high school and get a little inspiration going , dug through some of her old sketchbooks and brainstormed some things to come.

This is what I imagine I look like trying to relax between projects 

A painting , not sure if gifted or original

I’m gonna try to put up things she wouldn’t mind me sharing 

Like I said she used to teach at my old high school 

Pretty sure this one is her’s, a sketch of the hallway inside my old highschool

She taught me a lot about art, taught me to ask a lot of questions I hadn’t asked myself , and though I can’t draw or sculpt to save my life, I applied a lot of it to my writing.

I also think this is her’s, that handwriting was consistent throughout the sketchbook

I should probably note that I’m not sure which photos to attribute to her , and which ones old students may have done 

I kind of snapped these as I read and didn’t have a chance to ask her.

For now though, I’m preparing to host tomorrow night at The Dock in Fort Worth , you can click here for more info.

I’ve also got one show booked for October and one in November,  more info to come on that soon.

Talk to you soon,  

Sin.

Welcome!

Happy monday!

I’ve noticed a few new subscribers lately, thank you all for joining!

Now I’ve been maintaining this blog for a few months on a weekly basis. I’ve kind of just winged it and posted what was on my mind the minute before the week was up,

whether it be videos of my poetry, think pieces, show dates, interviews etc.

So I’d like to take a second and ask those of you that are reading, what would you like to see more of ?

Should I keep my random schedule or tighten up a bit?

A bit about me while we’re here: I have one poetry project out, working on a second….I’ve done a good amount of gigs in the local poetry scene, even did a short tour for my first project. I’m looking to prep and go to a college conference like apca next fall and eventually turn a living touring the college circuit and afford myself the luxury of working on my art full time.

Right now the purpose of this blog is as

1 A creative outlet

2 A platform I have full creative control over, and general hub for my followers/fans

3 A working resume or sorts, as much of my shows, interviews and poetry

All that being said, I’d love to hear you feedback in the comments!

Take care,

Sin.

Spoken Jazz Vegas

My Saturday

10 A.M: flight from DFW to Las Vegas 


11 A.M (Vegas time): touchdown and errands 


3 P.M: Powa nap

6 P.M: Get ready at venue 

8 P.M: Showtime

11 P.M: Dinna

1 A.M: Flight back to DFW

to touchdown at 6 A.M (DFW time)

And it was all worth it! 

We had an awesome show, and a healthy crowd for labor day weekend in Vegas.

I know there was some video taken, and I’ll be trying to track that down so check out my social media @sinspokenword I’ll most likely have it on my Facebook page

Critique me 

If I could paint

I’d lock myself within blank walls,

stare at your photograph

That is on the back of my new bookmarks (a recent marketing attempt on my behalf, my social media info is on the other side)

What do you think? 

Is it a poem ? 

Why or why not?

What does it mean?

Does it mean anything?

Is it simplistic ?

Is it lazy?

There’s an eternal debate over the importance of a creative’s intent on the meaning of their creations, and I most definitely know what it means to me, but I don’t intend for it to mean the same (or anything in particular) for you.

Does that make a difference? 

Comment your responses, I’d love to know what you think

Or hit me on social media @sinspokenword

My therapy tour is wrapping up this month so if you’d like to come hear me ask a million questions live I’ll be at 

The Dock Bookshop in Fort Worth TX Tuesday the 2

Franky Diablos in San Antonio TX Sunday the 14

And the Baobab Stage in Las Vegas NV Saturday the 27

Pictures from shows coming soon,

Til next time
