Thank you for hosting these 2 amazing poets!
Thank you so much for joining us. I teach Court Reporting, but I write poetry, and your names just came up in my poetry immersion class.

What a great way to celebrate international women’s day!
"I would let you name me"--that's interesting because of power dynamics with naming--seldom does someone or something have a say in what their name is. Speaking for myself at least, when I was born I didn't have a choice to let my parents name me anything. They didn't ask my opinion.
Neat trivia fact: last summer in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, there was a sign that said we were in the homeland of the Nimiipu (or Nez Perce), and in their language there is no word that can be translated as "wilderness"
I think that speaks to their culture not viewing humans and nature as being separate, as humans being "naturally unnatural"
That’s fascinating, Tim!
"....even if I can't write my way to a sunrise." I love that.

Did the doctor really say "Shit happens"
One of my favorites--so perfect for the day!

"Almost free"--it's the "almost" that makes that last line so powerful and chilling
love that one
Wonderful! I interpret that as a very hopeful poem.
I’ve enjoyed your poems and conversation so much! Thank you all for a lovely way to close my day out.
With all the "big" stuff going on in the world, poems about the obsessions, or about the ordinary, etc.--those are very comforting to me.
thank you what a wonderful session
Beautiful!! Thank you so much for sharing your work!
