The guest speakers at Ghost Town are top notch. This month, we were graced with the Washington State poet laureate Tod Mashall. He is featured on video #3 if you are interested. Tod is doing very good work throughout the state. I got the privilege of attending a workshop he led Thursday afternoon. He has put out a call for place poems from Washington poets living in Washington. If you think you want to submit a poem, post it on the link to the right.
I hope I can incorporate this way of life into my work, not just on the page, but also with my children, my partner, and work in my future.
Also with the horses I groom, the wild animals I meet, the people that hold anger against me, the people that have needs greater then me. I want renewed eyes to behold them all in words and heart. I want this poetic life.
