Open Reading January 2008


WG Reading 1 / 08

Yesterday was hot, for such a cold night. There was a good crowd at Misfits and the Reading were well done.

Chris coming down from Nagano, led off with a handful of his work. One quote from his writings ‘so much carrion and so few birds’

Joe had six readers for his play ‘ Silence’ He described trauma as ‘a oyster onion needing to be peeled layer by layer to find the grain of sand.’

Albert followed with his joke on Whaling that got panned but his Haiku ‘ Bamboo clapping’ went over well.

Sarah read part of her story ‘The Insider’ with a ‘soyi stain much like the shape of Italy.’

Tom hit us with an astroid out of no where, Hitting us right at Misfits.

Ernie read ‘New Year’s Day’ of youth practicing in the cold river, Hell needs a special ring for people who upload to youtube. (Ernie let us not the site where we can see your ticket to hell.)

and finally Leah and her Haiku ‘ The best of 2007’ Her tribute to Max Roach, ‘who between drumbeats, taught us to listen.’

One change for this reading was points were given for dramatic  Introductions, quotable lines and strong endings. The cup winner was Ernie. Many thought it was Ernie’s best work yet.

The wine flowed and audience response was a good cheer. Many more came to enjoy the sound of the words.

Great turn out ! Great Results ! Thank you all.
