I haven't seen BABYGIRL around in a while---but she was right about something.

My New York City tour, scheduled for October, is going to have to be postponed---and probably won't take place until January (after "Diary of a Lost Girl" comes out at christmas).

The reasons are varied, but mainly...(1) I continue to be ill--having lower back pain, headaches, lack of appetite and crying spells (because of the back pain), not having energy to take my walks anymore--which the doctors claim are all "psychological" and NOT my kidneys, and I also refuse to take medication, so I'm just not well enough to deal with a tour of New York--a place where many of my worst enemies reside and I would need to be at my optimal best. (2) I need to finish "The Sexy Part of the Bible" very desperately now that so many houses are waiting to read it--and I want to be with a major house. The book is very complex, and has to be to my liking. (#3) The poem that I wrote for John Garang's funeral, "Choll Apieth", has become such a hit--that it established some of the prestige press that I was going to New York to court (for instance--I've been asked to give a recital at Columbia University just because of that poem---and major newspapers in Kenya, Uganda and South Africa have all published the poem----AND----a legendary black male writer who once cursed me, wrote an apologetic note saying what talent I have).

For those who care about such trivia...here's some of the PRESS for the poem:

Kola Boof? Are you ever going to do a tour in Florida, or be on any nationally broadcasted AM radio shows? The speakers on my computer don't work, so I cant listen to your clips, but I would love to hear you speak. I know that your words are powerful on paper, but to hear it directly from your mouth, is probably even more captivating. I live in Miami, so if you're ever in town, don't forget to post it up on here.

And, is there a place where I can go to find out more about your tour and such? because I don't think your website has any info on when or where we can hear you speak.

Peace To The Black Man, The Original Man:
Much Luv, Stay Strong...

Edenson, email me your address---and I will autograph and mail you a CD of one of my radio interviews.

I should be coming to Miami in 2006---once you're on my email list, you will get emails telling you where I am and what I'm doing.

OWWW. Could they be kidney stones? even if it isn't try drinking pure cranberry jiuce for the next couple days.
Oh it could also be stress-related. Get as many opinions as you can, that's all I can say.

Love the poem.:-)

Kola, I shall collect on my winning bets post haste...

But truly, I regret that you have not been feeling well and I wish you a very speedy recovery.

As well I wish you much success with The Sexy Part of the Bible (a very engaging title by the way).

So, until the next time we lock horns...stay blessed, my friend...
