I am just back from an amazing Erasmus+ trip to Georgia! Organised by Millennium Georgia and Bauhaus Café CIC.
A ten day workshop, it focused on the tools to turn creativity into careers, featuring seven countries! Erasmus+ fund amazing projects and are so worth getting involved with! Here is a vlog about the whole experience featuring some amazingly talented people!
It is the week of the video, here are two videos recorded recently. The first was recorded by the wonderful Buckle Up Films. It was filmed at The Woodshed Gallery and written about one of the works in their latest exhibition. The poem I creared was called Reflections on a Vase and written about a vase created by Laura Froude. I was honoured to be part of the exhibion in this way.
The second was filmed at the Stag Coffee open mic when I was honoured to be joined by Russ Davey on saxophone. A dream come true! It shows the joy of open mics and experimenting!
This is the second video from In Bloom.
I would never have chosen this but as I looked for poems I might read, the surrounding environment itself selected the poem when a leaf fell and landed on it. It felt right so I went with it. It’s a poem about a breakdown and the following recovery.
Watch the other half of In Bloom, Dawn Blossom, here.
Here is the next episode of the vlog. Please comment, like and share these vlogs and anything else, if you would like to. Oxygen is a celebration of breathing and the simple joy of it all. It is filmed in the grounds of St Eanswythe Church in Folkestone, Kent. It is also an attempt to over come the awkward feeling that comes with filming outside haha. Read the written version of Oxygen here.
And here is episode six complete with terrible framing! We live and we learn… This one is about the power we all have and the goodness we can achieve through little actions. The Rain Never Came is an old poem I was inspired to read for this due to the day that had been.
More ramblings and poems. This week it is a poem about dancing and the inter-connectedness of all things (and the amazing series Dirk Gently). More than this though it is about how it just takes the effort and intention that is making the first step. The rest unfolds as it should because of us intentionally and a little positive chance doesn’t hurt either, but it just takes that first step! Here is the original in written form 🙂 I hope you like it! Like, comment and share 🙂
Here is my latest vlog, filmed at the open stage I run at the Lime Bar Cafe, Folkestone. It is about homelessness and the fact everyone has a story. Is too easy to look and make a judgement when we can never know what has led someone to their circumstance. The written version is here.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for watching 🙂
Here is the next episode of the vlog, I am getting into this and I hope you like it to. This is a celebration of Folkestone and home. Whether the day has been good or bad, tomorrow is a new one and there is beauty in the world.
Like, share and comment. Here is the original poem in written form. I hope you like it!
Here is another vlog, and a poem on the joys of reconnecting and grounding. Read the original poem here that features here.
I have started a little vlog, I’m not sure what it will be yet but I feel like it will be a poem and the inspiration for it or thoughts about it.
Who can tell? Hopefully me eventually. Anyway I hope you like it! This weeks is around the poem I published recently, A Different Way Of Seeing and I ramble about creativity for a bit.
