Digbies! Glimmerglass!

Lynn Digby's seagull
Paul Digby videos of my poems...

Paul Digby has just recorded audio for a brand new poem of mine called "The Flower Girl," which he plans to make into a video, some day.

So I am thinking about how much I appreciate all his audio and video work, as well as the way his love for making things pours out into music composition, singing, pictures, gardens, house and frames carpentry, knitting, and much more. And he reads beautifully.

Here's a link to his six prior videos for my poems:

And look at the prior post for news about Lynn Digby's small paintings blog... It's interesting that even in odd corners of this huge country, people are striving after beauty and wishing to make a life in the kingdom of the arts.

A week left to throw your hat in the ring...


Every one helps make the book a tiny bit more visible in this big, colorful world, so please lodge a request!

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
