Last Thursday I put on some nice clothes, got into my car and drove myself to an Open Mic I’d heard of at Pleasant Valley Brewing. It felt like it was time to just put myself out there, stir things up. I didn’t let the fact that I had no accompaniment stop me or that it was just me, a lone black woman, in a small New England town bar deter me.

Glad to report that much fun was had. Everyone was amazingly welcoming and I had a great time. Heading back there this Thursday!
