My Version of a #Selfie for Breast Cancer
I will not be posting a #Selfie of myself without make-up. I did my own version last night when I took part in an open mic session at Sankeys. I performed a poem dedicated to and about Susie Wallace who is no longer with us due to Breast Cancer. This poem has appeared on my blog before but it was the first time I had stood in front of a microphone to perform a revised version of 'Sorting Susie' and publicity state that I am a writer to mostly strangers. The poem signifies some of those wonderful aspects of Susie that I miss. A contribution was made to Marie Curie Cancer Care. For me, sharing the words that run through my head is just as daring, as I often write without make-up. Hope you all understand.
If anyone is interested in reading the full poem, please comment and I will reveal all.
