Tonight is Open Mic Night at our local library.
A few brave people come to pour out their heart and soul.
We do not compare to Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stephenson, Margaret Mitchell or Elvis.
Nevertheless, we are a few people dedicated to our craft, who are willing to share our words with others.
Hey, it is also good experience for when we are famous and are invited to all those personal appearances and interviews.
Did I mention that we are also dreamers?
At our open mic you are likely to hear poems, short stories, tall tales or ballads.
I have read my children's stories, poems and short stories. I have even read a recollection of a family vacation where we made a few wrong turns, missed a few turn offs, tried to decipher the local dialect and still managed to arrive at our destination - an old family cemetery.
What would you say behind the Open Mic?
