Today after the best best night of sleep (and I was exhausted), I met with S. Erin Batiste and Elena Velasquez, my So Cal writing group. We workshopped for a few hours at S. Erin's cottage and got a lot of work done. I left energized and excited to re-write.
Then, I went straight to see La Bruja perform at the Centro Cultural de la Raza. I am disappointed that San Diego turned out so few people to see her. But the audience that was there had a blast. Her performance was one of the best I've seen in years. She was really funny, heartbreaking and inspiring. I wish she was performing another night so I could tell everyone I know to go see her. I'll never be able to head Rihanna's "Umbrella" again without transposing La Bruja's hilarious lyrics over it.
*sigh* What a life. It doesn't end. I have a ton of work to do this week too and haven't even thought about it. More poetry. More applications. But tonight, a hot bath, a glass of wine and well-deserved, and needed solitude.
