I co-host with Mary Blue on Streetlifefm. She does all the techno work whilst I am the outreach lady. Today was great as per because we keep positive and uplifted throughout.
Some ole skool music today as well; Bob Marley, Alicia Keys, bit of Annie Lennox and then some Pixie Lott off the chart playlist. At 11.00am on came our wonderful guest Nicole Moore of Shangwe Publications. Shangwe means “Celebration”. Nicole read punchy poetry. Yes!
Mary Blue reads poems often on her programme. Today she did a book review and people were emailing in with gusto!
I also came prepared to do a photo journal of Mary Blue at work. Got some good
natural shots and then wouldn’t along come a professional photographer and no-one told us about that. Took it bravely and let the professionals do their bit. We seniors are the new black so fit the favoured demographic in terms of vital montages and movie slides etc. We ain’t daft, know what’s goin’ on.
Love the wind and the leaves cascading in my back yard.
Check out Valerie Bateson’s photos of Epping Forest in the Autumn wind around Walthamstow.
So much going on and to do. Yesterday was a day of Diwali celebrations in parts of Islington and Hackney. I was unable to go out to play/not prepared to travel as a sardine cos of the tube strike choking up the buses. I got over it. Up the workers!
