Greetings once again,
I wish a very blessed and prosperous New Year to you all!
I have some news regarding my regular reading gigs about town. Firstly, the monthly party, Necromantic, was on an unscheduled hiatus this past January, so naturally I did not read there this month. Time will tell if I continue to read at any more Necromantic parties in future; although I would like to, there are some things occurring that make this a shaky proposition at this time.
Also, although I am still welcome to read at the Absolution party, the club's management has altered the accessibility of the party's patrons so that they cannot come upstairs as early as they are supposed to, or even at all on some nights. This leaves me with nowhere to read, essentially, as the downstairs dancefloor is simply too loud and there's literally no room to set up. However, I've heard through the grapevine that Absolution may be relocating to a new venue soon. That said, the new venue might not have a space for me to set up, either, so I might have to stop reading there. Again, time will tell. I'm crossing my fingers...
Finally, I am still retaining my regular reading night at the Court of Lazarus @ Madame X, on West Houston St. off of LaGuardia Pl., NYC, on the third Sunday of each month. Citizens of Lazarus may attend starting at 8:30 PM; admission for guests begins at 9. If you would like to see me there, or would just like to check it out, please contact me here or on Facebook and I'll arrange to have you admitted. Entrance fee is only $5.00. I set up in the back room, upstairs, in the far left corner, usually by 9 PM. I do not charge for readings at this event, as such; however, tips are greatly appreciated as they help me cover my transportation costs between home and Court.
In other news, the new community-based, Interfaith choral group, Spirit Song Earth Chorus, is still very much alive! We are currently on hiatus, allowing the craziness of the holiday season to wind down and catching our collective breath, as it were, before we dive into a new season. Also, seeing as the core members live so far apart, travel conditions are also a factor; with all the snow and ICE we have, it can be difficult for us to meet up, so we'll be starting up again around Imbolc, which is on February 2nd (also called Groundhog Day, Candlemas and St. Brighid's Day). If you interested in taking part in this group's activities, or merely wish to find out more, please visit our website at www.SpiritSongEarthChorus.webs.com or our Facebook page: Spirit Song Earth Chorus.
So, that's about all for now. I'll definitely keep you all posted on the doings of the Chorus and the schedule of my readings as and when new developments arise.
Blessed be, one and all!
