Wired Coffee Open Mike Reading

10:00 p.m.

We just returned from Wired Coffee, St. Louis Writer's Guild's veneue for open mike readings. Debbie brought her mom, and read an outstanding piece. Faye brought us to tears, Ashley always makes us laugh. David wrote great poetry and Marcel read from his book, Story of a Lifetime. Long-lost Gerry showed up and read an hysterical piece, Farewell to My Wife, the punchline was priceless. He had everyone laughing. And that is just a sampling of those in attendance.

Each piece we read aloud is like turning another page in our lives; whether it is prose or poetry, we reveal a little a bit about who we are. Even though we may see one another briefly at literary events, the fondness and friendships evolve into intimacy, and we really do feel like one big welcoming family.

Tuesday evenings in St. Louis...so many literary events.
