Happy New Year, All! Let’s all put good energy and intention into manifesting a really good 2021, despite all the madness and bad juju that the world is hungover with after the worst year in modern history.
To that end, I went out today and bought a new 2021 planner. It’s now sitting atop my desk, clean and shiny with all the optimism I can currently muster, ready for the Universe to fill it up with good things that allow good people to gather around, just like all my pre-2020 planners did.
So far so good. It felt great to enter my first public (though still virtual) event in the Saturday, January 9th block. It’s the first SALA of the year and it’s going to be a great one, coming right on the heels of our most well-attended event last month. I even got to experience the thrill of watching legendary labor and civil rights activist, Dolores Huerta, dance to my deejay set. She tore up and closed out the dance floor–as many have said she does every time!
The Beloved Party Crew (BPC) and I are overjoyed that she has agreed to return as the keynote speaker for this weekend’s event, set to make opening remarks on the timely theme of ‘new beginnings’, as well as her thoughts on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in advance of the national holiday in his honor.
I’m also thrilled that my pal, Latin reggae artist Tone Irie, accepted my invitation to come and sing some songs for us between the poetry and dance party portions of the night. AND…if that weren’t enough, my amiga, Pilar Castillo, has been booked as the featured visual artist. I can’t wait for everyone to see her recent reinterpretation of the U.S. Passport book.
Be sure to grab the Zoom link from the SALA Facebook event page spread the word and be ready to keep up with Señora Huerta on your living room dance floor!
