Last night Jorie Graham came to Wilde Boys to talk about her new book of poems, Place, and I also spoke to her about a variety of topics like poetic form, being awake and present in the world, writing from the body/writing from the mind, how scientists are turning to artists in thinking about environmental problems, poetry and politics, and much more.
Jorie was luminous, generous, and stunning. She changed the energy in the room. I am so grateful to her for coming to my salon. It was a gift.
Here we are. All smiles.
