A Reading: Meditations on Water
October 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Water, too much of it, too little of it. Drought, flood, refreshment, stillness. I will be reading with giovanni singleton and Terri Glass in Sausalito along this theme: Water as metaphor, water as basic element of life. Hope you can come! And please forward this newsletter to anyone you feel might be interested.
