Pigeon loved being in the company of Lotus Classics as they played a variety of soulful tunes both modern and old classics. The crowds flocked to listen and watch from the railings above. For a moment in time as thought time had stood still, it was silent and all you could hear was the beautiful soft sounds of the individual instruments.
Eight years ago I saw a pigeon with tangled feet, then I noticed a pigeon watching an opera singers busking in Covent Garden’s piazza & an invisible force of pure joy & excitement flowed through me. I began to write. I haven’t stopped! Pigeon was so excited to be snuggling up to his favourite sound, which he likes to call the ‘tra la la la laaaaaa’!
Enjoying some positive Wednesday vibes by sharing this book review about The Tap-Dancing Pigeon Of Covent Garden on Foyles bookshop online.
Is there anything you have done that you never imagined you would do in your life? A year ago, I would have never imagined I would be invited on BBC Radio London. I am so glad that I pushed myself to go on Sky News live as this gave me the confidence to say yes to my invitation on the Jo Good Show. I immediately warmed to Jo Good as she was full of kind, positive energy and she adored Pigeon. I will always look back on this moment with warmth and joy. It was also a huge honour to meet Margaret from Alligators Mouth. A lovely children’s bookshop worth visiting in Richmond.
The Tap-Dancing Pigeon of Covent Garden had a wonderful day out on Friday 7th February. He flew into his favourite cafe called @cupcakestories and bought a beak-watering vegan chocolate cupcake while watching the #operasingers #busk in the heart of #londontourism in wonderful #coventgarden where you can experience a delightful mix of #ballet #operasinging #tapdancing.
I hope you all had a chance to celebrate National Storytelling week in your own special ways. Pigeon and I visited a sweet nursery in London called The Playroom. Greeted by lots of smiley faces and some beautiful pigeon crafts they had created in honour of Pigeon’s visit.
Nothing ventured nothing gained. What a great saying. The Tap-Dancing Pigeon and I are thrilled to announce that we have been invited to Sharjah to take part in their annual children’s reading festival in April from 13th to 17th April. I will have the chance to inspire children to fulfil their dreams, live in the moment, believe in themselves and visit their schools and perhaps be not he radio and television. I feel honoured.
