Saturday night came & punctuated in stride every of my reinstigated enthusiasm for poetry, community, fun. Again it was occurred before me and immersed, each of the poets better than I understood, a type of edge that is best.
Joshua Moore, Bill Brown, & Kristi Maxwell were all astonishing, and the ricochet, set of priorities each suited to each and crossfire, interrelated, among. To them, thanks, to those showed up, goodness, such immense time conjoined into us. It is that I was excited to be overwhelmed and probably biased but no less enthralled and made whole to be present then, astonishingly.
& Thanks to LOCATE Arts for showing us outward and join with. What a great resource for visual arts in Tennessee, don't forget them and their grand databases of events and openings in the Volunteer State. Lain York's contributions to the evening were apt, and focal, determined by an intentionally narrative conduit, opened to, and by the literary in the historical. To him, the thanks too.
& then the Angel Olsen show, ran to with wine bladders, scooted in crowd stairwell slant and bump, therefore into new record for us, perhaps still amazing.
The weather is changing nicely.
