The Gazeebo: New is Good

Hello all! It’s been a little while since actually providing some information on me.  For one, I’m back with Safeway, again working as a Courtesy Clerk so I guess that’s cool.  For Christmas 2011, I got an acoustic electric guitar, which is an absolutely beautiful black, along with a guitar case, strap, picks, and a book to get started with my learning the guitar.  I’ve actually learned how to play “Sparkling Stella,” which I swear sounds exactly like “Twinkle Little Star,” “Aura Lee,” which I actually learned on piano last semester, and “Amazing Grace.”  It’s really fun playing the guitar and hope to become so much better this next semester when I’m taking Class Guitar 1.  Oh and by the way, I get to take the class with my mom so that’s pretty cool 🙂

I now have a Facebook page of myself in order to try and get my name out there more 🙂  As an artist that is trying to make something of themselves with that artistic skill, you kind of have to advertise yourself because no one else is really going to do it for you so I’m even debating on adding some videos on YouTube of me reading my poetry.  Naturally, it’d most likely be just my voice and a video of the actual words of the poem so people can read them as I’m reading them 🙂

Finally, and I’m not all that sure if I mentioned this yet, but I’m part of a zine called “Everything but…” – we’re a collection of creative writers, all who enjoy writing with a massive passion and we recently got a blog up and running to advertise ourselves and the zine itself.  If you’re interested, this is the website, and this is the Twitter account of the zine.

Now, as I usually do with my blog posts, here’s a poem I just wrote today. Continue reading

The Gazeebo: Finales are Like New Beginnings

Long time, no post…

So I’ve been kind of busy lately which is why I didn’t post since around June 15th lol.  But, I guess it’s not a bad thing because I learned a few things over the past few days so it’s a good thing 🙂

Well, on another subject, last Thursday was the finale show of “Pirates of Penzance.”  The entire thing was amazing and I’d say that they really did their best on that final night, as it should go 🙂  But, a final congrats to my sister who was Mabel, the lead female character in the show!! 🙂

Anyway, that’s all.  Now on to the poem… again it’s not one of mine; it is one of my most favorite poems that I remember from my childhood.  It’s by Langston Hughes and I found the copy here.

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
