It might be the 56 Days of August, but I’ll take a break from writing postcards for a moment to read at two local cultural events that I’ve been part of before.
Margin Shift: Friends in Poetry has been a “movable feast” for the better part of a year now and much the better, finding venues to partner with including the Seattle Theosophical Library on Capitol Hill. Located inside the Quest Bookshop, this was a place I visited many times after moving to Seattle in 1988 to get feed my growing interest in the metaphysical. To read there will be a joy and an honor. Friends Amy Hirayama and Eric Acosta will participate along with four other poets in what is shaping up to be one of my summer highlights. In preparing work for this occasion, I remembered that MANY of my haibun from the book Haibun de la Serna have references to my daily Rune divination practice and that is consistent with what I expect will be covered on this occasion. The details:
What: Margin Shift
When: Thursday, August 3, 7pm
Where: Seattle Theosophical Library, 717 E Broadway, Seattle, WA 98102
My thanks to Matt Trease and Deborah Woodard for inviting me again, for their efforts in keeping the series going and for the remarkable introductions they write for each participant.
