    Hi, Ricky, I very much enjoyed the night. Oh, you were captivating with your poems. I liked esp. your version of John Lennon's song. Thank you.

    1 · February 10, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      Thank you so much, Maria S! It means everything to me, to us, to hear what people think of the poetry, the music, the evening as we give everything we can to you in the spirit of love. That song has carried me through many a difficult moment, and I'm happy to know that I did it justice.

    Oh, My god, two posts from me, almost identical, only remember making one, temporary demon possession-only logical explanation.

    • Ricky L.

      both beautifully writ any which way you cut them, Daniel! and more like poetically and angelically possessed if you ask me!

  • Juliann

    Thank you for another FANTASTIC evening, Ricky, David, Nancy, and all the poets and friends! The varied voices you bring continue to fascinate and inspire! I truly enjoy the supportive and energizing environment; you make me feel as if anything is possible! Thanks to your welcoming open mic, you help me give life to my words and my characters. Here’s to 8th Day Arts!

    2 · February 8, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      Here's to you, Juliann, for having the courage to share your words! More please for the next salon!

  • Shantel

    Had to end the night early. Had a wonderful week, yet I was starting to fade and needed to drive home and get there safely. It was a lovely night of poetry with some very brave and creative souls. Thank you for the lovely rose Ricky. A nice surprise for the ladies. Good night all.

    1 · February 7, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      Thank you for joining us, Shantel! So glad you enjoyed the evening and hope to see you at our next salon in March!

    A glorious night sky was filled with silver shooting stars. A rare nighttime rainbow appeared on the blackened horizon. Animals spoke to humans, demanding their civil rights and planned a march on Washington. Plants complained loudly about the drought. Tomb stones tumbled over as the dead awoke and excitedly recounted the spectacular poetry, wine and snacks served that evening. All things living and dead want to thank Nancy for her being such a kind and generous host, David for his brilliant violin performance, Ricky for taking us on a poetic (Homeresk) magical journey with his MacArthurish genius. And now all this magic will go underground until the first Friday of next month at the Cat in the Lotus. If I over sleep, kindly wake me up then.

    A glorious night, sky filled with silver shooting stars, a rare rainbow appeared on the horizon, animals spoke to humans, plants complained loudly about the drought, gravestones overturned and the dead arose, wanting to sharing their stories of how great San Valentino's 8th Day Arts Poetry, And Wine Salon was. All things living and dead want to thank Nancy for being such a gracious host, David for his brilliant Violin play, and Ricky for the magical journey he took us on with his MacArthur Geniusish poetry. A shame that all will rest and only awaken the first Friday of next month at The Cat in the Lotus in Glendale. Good night, wake me up then, please.

    Hey, everyone! So sad I can't make it out! Wishing I was with you broken-healing-and bursting with love--big hearted folks! Enjoy the poetry!

    February 7, 2014

    • Shantel

      It was a good night of poetry and music. Enjoyed. They are there the first Friday of each month. Hope you get a chance to experience it.

  • Shantel

    I hope it's ok to join in tonight if you're not broken- hearted. I'm kind of in a sweet place and feeling very good about all things, even the possibility of a good connection when I least expect it. Tonight, let there be good poetry, good music, and good wine. Let the eve begin......

    1 · February 7, 2014

  • Ricky L.

    Good folks, please take the lead from our fearless Free Concerts Organizer Lionel and let me know if you'd like to read a poem or share with us one of your talents. Please keep it to a poem or two or 5 minutes in order to accommodate others during open mic! Thanks! -RL

    • Shantel

      Yes, absolutely. :) Looking forward to it!

      Glad you enjoy karaoke Ricky. We may just have to sing a duet at the next LAFC event. Love the fun of the karaoke experience. Tonight let the poetry begin! :)

  • Rolando

    Talia, my buddy Art and I will be there. Cesar may come too.

    2 · February 6, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      It's great that you, Talia and Art are coming. But I don't know about Cesar. He's just such a cold mess right now. I don't know if he'll have the emotional fortitude to to withstand all the poems about heartbreak. It's too bad. He's a good guy just looking for a good gal.

      1 · February 7, 2014

    • Rolando

      I think the mess and the broken heart are a thing of the past. He said he's attending tonight's reading and will sit in the "lovers" section. He just wants to go to a place where's there music and there's people and they're young and alive.

      2 · February 7, 2014

  • Evie M.

    Im new to this group and Im very excited about meeting you all, was even going up for poetry reading tonight, but I may not be able to make it. Please do count me in for future meetings.

  • Juliann

    If I’m feeling inspired, I might want to read a bit of prose I wrote that is thematically relevant to the evening!

    4 · February 6, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      Juliann- Please do as we'd love to hear it!

    I would love to share a piece of free writting. However I'll be arriving late. Is there a way to appoint myself for 8pm?

    3 · February 6, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      We'd love for you to share your writing with us, Evie. I'll call you up after you arrive.

      Thanks for the pic props, Denise! I work hard to give everyone the flavor of what we do, and this one will be as star-studded and all about the ups and downs of love!

  • Juliann

    Last month was my first evening at the 8th Day Arts Poetry and Wine Salon. It was an amazing evening, and I'm really looking forward to the February event! There was such a range of emotion in January; I'm sure that San Valentino will inspire even more at the next event.

    1 · January 29, 2014

    • Ricky L.

      Juliann, It was such a pleasure to meet you and have you join us last month, and to know how much you enjoyed it! David and I and the rest of the poets give everything we have because there's no other place like the Cat in the Lotus fair trade boutique and no other event like the 8th Days Arts Poetry & Wine Salon where people can freely express themselves and feel the support and love of our community. Love is the theme for this month, and we will not lack for it. Looking forward you to seeing you again on Friday, February 7!

      2 · January 29, 2014

  • Lionel

    Ricky Luv is a wonderful gift for this group. Every first Friday, for many years, he has shared his passion, his genius with us. And for free. Ricky Luv is our POET LAUREATE.

    • Ricky L.

      I'm honored and indebted to Lionel and this Meetup Group to have me as their Poet Laureate! Please join us for an unforgettable evening of words, music and wine!
