GPI’s open mic in August

Monday, August 31st, 2015

We had another wonderful time at our open mic in August. We were so inspired by each other’s words and energy that we stuck around afterward at Bossa to listen and dance to Cheik Hamala’s band. Good times all around! Here are some highlights:

Luis brought us the beginnings of his oil paintings…a melange so he can go on with that calm through his whole day (your mind is on another level, never should you settle).

Eunice reminded us of the phrase that rang long in the minds of her people, as they fought apartheid: united we stand, divided we fall.

Later you will discover the wind and John’s qualifications to be the wind.

Jess warned to be wary of Facebook, our psychotic love.

Tonight, Michael plans to murder his life–grief, sadly his only friend, will be in shock.

Suriya’s sunrise sustenance punctuates words straight to the blood stream, no chaser.

David has strawberry fever, love without love…the key to its success is eating the rest and knowing there’s more to come.

Sly said breaking up with someone is kinda like writing a poem; make love to paper like you will never write again.

Chris wondered…is society measured by what’s down at the 7-11?

Please join us at Bossa (2463 18th St. NW DC) on next second Tuesday of the month, 7-9 PM. See you there on September 8th!
