Thursday Night Poetry Salon January 10, 2008

Dear local poets and friends,

We look forward to seeing you this week
at our Thursday evening gathering.
Poetry Workshop 6:30 to 8:30
(dinner served throughout)
followed by 8:30 to 9 P.M.

Musical entertainment will be a continuation
of the historical flute demonstration Rick gave, this time
featuring duets on copies and
original flutes from renaissance to 19th century.
Our friend Harry Bower from San Francisco
and Rick Wilson will perform. A special treat will be
duets on two renaissance bass flutes (you have not seen
that flute yet). Few makers have constructed
copies of the bass renaissance flute, so the fact
that both Rick and Harry own one,
made by a friend in Paris-- putting two in the same room...
gives us quite a rare experience. You will love the
haunting sound of these elusive instruments.

Bring 15 copies of your poem (if you need copies,
we have a copier here, try to do this as soon as you arrive.)

We have copies of Justin's great magazine
"Behold the Pirate Pig" available
for $10. (Several of our members are
included) Also a poem by Pauli Dutton was
recently published in the delightful
Shakespeare's Monkey Revue, issue #2.
We have one copy here for display, and I have
ordered more --they will be $5 each.

See above two photos from last week. The first shows some of our
poets during the workshop. In the last you can see our much
appreciated friend Harry singing "Some Old Songs" with his ukulele.
His Indonesian inspired tempeh curry and salad, followed by black rice
pudding were loved by everyone.

Our new ideas for commentary have been wonderful, and as long as we
all cooperate by being brief and aware of time, we see them demonstrated
as adding a rich level of interaction to the workshop.

Hope to see you all soon. Thank you for your happy participation
and wonderful poetry.

I love these poets (Kath)

Someday I'll have to visit CA just to see y'all -- it sounds like you're always having fun!

Drop me a line, Kath, so I can send you that drawing (I emailed you about it before Christmas, I think, but didn't hear from you.)
