Love is...

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I want this as a poster, any one know where I can get one?
No it's not Jay-Z and Beyonce in 2060! It's the stunning couple Geoffrey Holder and Carmen De Lavallade. This equally talented couple have been married for almost 60 years! Both were renowned dancers in their prime and beyond, as well as finding success in acting and the visual arts...and still going strong!

Black Book Swap Event

I ventured up to the London borough of Islington yesterday, to attend this book event. It was well worth the trek! I swapped two books (both on my very long bucket list of books) as well as buying another at a very reasonable price!

RESULT!

The place was packed with readers and prospective writers, mingling with published authors such as Sophia Acheampong. Unfortunatly I had to leave half way through but managed to catch most of the speakers including Alex Wheatle and Eva G Headley, who both spoke positively about their own experiences as writers and the option of self publishing.
Hope there's another Black Book Swap event planned however they will definately need a bigger venue!

Thanks to the organisers for an enjoyable afternoon!
