Cape Town

In Cape Town on June 4, 2011 at 4:22 am

In 3 weeks I’ll be setting off on my most exciting journey to date. I’m moving to Capetown, South Africa for the summer. I started this blog to capture my experience, but this is much more than simply travelling to another country for 3 or 4 months. It truly is about living out your dreams and having the courage to just, escape.

A little background.

My name is Titilope, I’m a spoken word poet. My alter-ego, my “Clark Kent” is an Engineer. I am at heart, a story teller. In a little over 3 years performing I have had a taste of what it means to have a dream and actually see it come to life in ways you could never imagine. I’ve managed to juggle my job and my art for a few years but after a conversation with a friend about an opportunity in Cape Town, I had a radical thought. What if I actually did this. Take 3 to 4 months off work, leave behind my family and my home and just…go.

Much like any idea I’ve ever had, I became obsessed with the thought of it. The idea that I could practice my art uninterrupted, that I could travel and be my most authentic self for 3 glorious months. I had to do it. Once the decision was made, every step, every process seemed to open up to accept me. I could see the universe quite literally conspiring to make this happen for me.

So, three weeks. I can honestly say I haven’t been this excited for anything except the birth of my amazing nephew. So this is where all the awesome will go. Come with me?

love, love, love,
