think i’ve said it before, but this whole covid lockdown business, has given me opportunities to do / be at certain things that i didn’t think were ever going to be possible.
its a no go for me atm .. kinda above my pay grade for now.
but during this whole pandemic i’ve managed to make 3 seperate ‘concerts’ that i otherwise wouldn’t have been able to attend.
the first was an erykah badu concert .. fuck me, what a kick that was!!!
the second was an erykah vs jill scott ‘concert’ type thing on IG. it was like 3 hours of all their music and singing and reminicing & it was fucken cool!!!
thats me in the middle .. just hanging out and shit LOL.
the 3rd attendance, was a Smart Funny & Black comedy show thing. if you follow amanda seales on IG at all, then you’ll know about this beautiful creation.
its something i’d absolutely love to go to but knew i wouldn’t be able to .. & then …
thats right, they did one online!
yes i bought a ticket and yes i ‘went’ and yes i laughed my ass off for hours!!!!!!!!
& its not just the attendance thing really .. for me, all these things were so fucking healing & liberating & normalising & empowering .. they’ve completely changed the game for me .. its part of whats flipping the shit atm.
its a beautiful beautiful thing.
