Got just three pics here from this past Friday's participation at the FESTIBA event in Edinburg, Tx. One is of myself, and the other two is two authors and me.
Ordinarily, I would post these photos to my social media accounts without much fanfare, such as writing a whole blog post about it. But when you get locked out of one of your main social media accounts, the one which you invested so much time in updating with new profile pics and such, only to be ignored by the handlers of said social media outfit when you ask, beg, plead, and scream for their help, you realize that you had been going about this whole thing wrong from the get go.
That's the lesson I took from this experience. Never again will I invest great quantities of my time and effort in updating a website that I have no control over when something goes wrong. My friends and supporters who follow what I do will have no problem, I'm sure, coming here to see what's new.
Of course, I'll share the post links to social media, but people will need to click to come see the updates. Social media will work for me, not the other way around. :)
And with that said, below are some pics of myself, me with Kathleen Carlson, (a great poet originally from Aruba), and me with mi tocayo Gabriel Gonzalez Nunez (another great poet originally from Uruguay).
You can check out Gabriel Gonzalez Nunez's blog if you CLICK HERE.
Kathleen doesn't have a blog page yet, but she will soon.
Y me falto Wendy Lara, una gran poeta y actriz a quien admiro mucho.
