Please forward this to Judith, Carolyn Wright and whomever else was responsible. I am sure that includes Meredith, the grand dame of hosts.
The 100K Poets for Change reading at SPLAB this past Saturday was a fabulous event. Each reader’s voice, culture, experience and craft were well worth the time and so much more than the donation. The readers represent this city and the great diversity we celebrate yet often, do not see. We saw, we heard and were well blessed by this active community of poets.
SPLAB consistently raises politics to the level of art and creates art that transforms time. We obviously need change around the world and these voices help all of us understand why and feed our souls for the continuing struggle of justice for all. It was ironically fitting that a tribute to waste was among the readings and it made me proud of the City of Seattle, the Public Utilities and the artist. Everything recycles and in the end, we are waste again.
The sponsors of this event are to be commended and the curators lauded.
To all of you who brought such excellence to Seattle, thank you so very much.
