There is a video HERE, please follow the link.
(for those of you only wish to see me, check at 1:13. I am standing in the far left with an orange scarf. And also at 1:20 again and at 1:33, too. I guess it is not much of a pain to watch between 1:13 and 1:37)
The paintings are cool and some of my favourites are shown from 2:10.
As for the recital.
I had three poems to read and I almost learned them by heart. At the peace of my empty home, when no one was around I was able to recite them almost completely. Like... I had to check one or two times.
I learned to play with the words in order to convey the message or let the words shine more. Or more obviously.
At the event however, I was a bit nervous.
There were so many people around. There was a microphone.
I looked more than two times into my papers, but the feedbacks and congratulations indicate that I was able to recite loudly, clearly and to the audience (not onto my paper). My husband said that I seemed to have immersed myself into the poems somehow and that my reading was lively.
I really tried to do my best :)
