There are stories to be told without
words, and lyrics that yet unfold in the
hollow corner of your heart, a space you
did not know existed until the bird of song
unfolded her wings there. And you felt
a truth in this wind created by this beat
of wings, this beat. Philip Glass, Joanna
Newsom and Tim Fain weave such musical
stories. Through their music something
rare and beautiful emerges. Emily
Dickinson said hope is a thing with feathers.
What these amazing bards will leave
you with tonight is not so much hope, but
a passage wherein you can find the way to
your own personal truth. This is a mythic
musical journey you are about to embark
upon. Enjoy the ride, it’s a magic carpet
you tread upon.

Reading tomorrow night in L.A.!

Check out the
Latest Blog post by the Henry Miller Memorial Library

wherein Mike Scutari once again outdoes himself with his verbal repartee. This event promises to be epic. Will post pictures. Will listen to the entire soundtrack to L.A. Woman while driving down there. Will pass the ocean: sea oats, otters, pelicans, Monterey Cypress; then farmland: lettuce, lettuce, grapes, grapes, tumbleweeds; then climb the Grapevine, look at houses perched on hill tops, and finally arrive.

See you there-Maria
