It’s been years since I went to a poetry reading. Tonight I went to the Griffin Poetry Prize Readings. Elaine, who came with me, had never been to one.
I can’t even remember where I read about the Griffin Prize or about the readings by the poets shortlisted for the awards but I remember thinking that it really wouldn’t be that different than a playwright reading a play. A performance.

So, having a baby rocks! Really. I love it. But it has elements I don’t like, for instance, the fact that I don’t get to see nearly as much theatre as I’d like to.
In light of that, I figured I’d let you know what I’m sad to be missing out on this weekend.
