It is an honor to be part of this year's festival!
I remember reading Lorca the first time as a teenager! "But like love / the archers / are blind" I was HOOKED! There was a photo of him and another of a street in Madrid-- a place and a person that gave us such rich celebrations of the imagination!
Although I was excited to visit Madrid in person, I will be conducting the workshop online.

I am spending time with friends in New York the weekend before New Years Day 2020. There is going to be a heavy rainstorm, as much as an inch and a half of water. This approaching storm is PERFECT for a ritual cleanse to prepare for the new calendar. There is a secluded section of the yard where we can each spend time privately standing naked with head back, facing the oncoming water, arms stretched as high as we can reach. We are going to build the ritual ingredients, but the focus is around each of us getting time in the storm. We will be writing notes for the poem before and after the rain, but also explaining what we want for the coming year without words. It could be drawing, dancing, whatever we want to communicate without words. We plan on having 9 ingredients, and these are just two so far. HAPPY NEW YEAR! MORE POETRY! MORE CREATIVITY! THEREFORE MORE SOLUTIONS FOR THE WORLD!
I LOVE to celebrate my birthday (I will be 54) at The Poetry Project in NYC for their annual fundraiser. Please join us, they have an enormous amount of poetry books for sale in the back room, as well as delicious food, AND OF COURSE the most amazing TALENT all day long out on the big stage! SEE YOU SOON! FULL SCHEDULE AT THIS LINK!
