Time to get back on the horse then....well, stage, I am actually a little scared of horses.

So, as we established in my last Diary Entry life has begun (So apparently life has begun). Having said that I am writing this whilst lounging about avoiding doing the multitude of chores I should be doing right now. 

I mentioned "The Artist's Way" in "Amazing what a positive attitude can do" a few weeks ago and one thing this book explores is synchronicity. By this they mean the way things seem to happen just when you need them to. Normally you would put it down to coincidence but "The Artist's Way" suggests these coincidences are not coincidences at all. So imagine my feeling when a friend of mine (my excellent friend Carmen Vass in case you are wondering) started telling me about the cabaret she is doing on July 10th and how she thought there was still a slot free should I be interested in having a go. 

Even though every fibre of my being wanted to say no I made myself say yes. This could not be a coincidence. I have been saying for SO long how I have wanted to have a go at cabaret and how I want to put together a one woman show so this opportunity is surely meant to be. I may not be cut out for it in the long run but too often I imagine doing something but never do it for fear of the reality not being as good as the dream. Not this time! Another thing "The Artist's Way" says is to get into the habit of saying "yes". Which is what I am really trying to do. I think my favourite word, up until this point, has been "maybe". 

So now I am desperately trying to put together 25 minutes of songs and mildly amusing chat that it can perform as part of "Cabaret Confidential" at The Pheasantry (Pizza Express on the King's Road, Chelsea) on Thursday July 10th. It will, in theory, be based on this here blog so watch this space for more details as and when they become available. By that I mean when I actually formulate a few thoughts and put something together. If you are free, and fancy a pizza with your entertainment, a few friendly faces in the audience would be very much appreciated.

Go to Pizza Express Live for more info on what is coming up. However, at the time of writing this, the cabaret night I am involved in is not, as yet, listed.
