It’s Spring and There Is Still More Work to Be Done
Spring has sprung.
And we’re thinking about body again. When and how to walk it out into the sun and how to care for it.
From San Francisco, we hear from our touchstone Diane di Prima, who dreams of time and tells us there is still more work to be done. Amber Tamblyn has been fundraising to cover di Prima’s healthcare expenses. Please help! And check out Melanie La Rosa‘s great new movie about her, “The Poetry Deal: A Film With Diane di Prima.”
Take a copy of Camille T. Dungy’s Black Nature anthology with you.
This spring you could also support Belladonna* Press, the publishers of kari edwards and Akilah Oliver, who are inquiring about women writers’ material lives with a series of events & readings.
You can come out to the Poetry Project’s Spring Benefit, with Thurston Moore, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, erica kaufman, John Zorn & Dana Ward.
And when you are fully in your body, take it out into the sun. We did, today; and we discovered that spring begets longing, like a rash! In fact, we felt a bit like kissing a deer as we both nibble on a blackberry. Guess spring and all is lyrical.
