Lana

Filed under: — site admin @ 12:09 pm

A week ago I should have been in Lana (Südtirol) to receive the N.C. Kaser-Lyrikpreis. My life is so changed within the past year that any travel more than the immediately local on foot with stick or by bus or car is impossible. Kindly, Tom Leonard spoke and read for me; and Ulf Stolterfoht read some of his German translations. Sadly I cannot yet put names to the faces of the local poets, musicians, artists (including Maria C. Hilber, Louis Schropp, Gerd Sulzenbacher, Matthias Vieider und Jörg Zemmler) who took part; but I thank them and Tom and Ulf for their generosity, and apologise for being unable to be with them.

I got home from today’s hospital stint to find a mail from Ken Edwards with a link to a piece on his website. Twenty years have passed quicker than flipping a coin. I was touched to see the work again. Thanks to the donor for his generous thought and action.

Rare Morning

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:13 pm

Not having been able to get outside for several days, and having a medical week ahead from tomorrow, I took advantage of rare early morning sunshine, first to notice my single iris had bloomed, and then to have a very short walk. The tide was going out and a stiff onshore wind cleared my head. I’ll be offline for some days.

Luke Allan’s site is to my taste, well and cleanly designed, with intelligent and witty work in several forms. His small press SINE WAVE PEAK is also worth keeping an eye on.

Art Thou Weary

Britain’s Underground Army BBC

Direct download: BUA.mp3

I’m weary, finding most music boring, and the English-speaking poetry/academic world is wallowing in such a slough of pretentious self-absorbed bullshit that who cares? Harry Parkes, Peter French and Geoff Rose, all in their 90s, interested me for half-an-hour with their memories of life as Bevin Boys during WW2. I’d forgotten that the mines weren’t nationalised until 1947, so these young conscripts sent to work underground for the “War Effort” were also enriching the private mineowners.

Project

For more than forty years all our contacts with Mexico and its people have left only affection and good memories. I’ve been following the ‘drug wars” as much as is possible here though only “big news” is visible (here , here , or here for example. So this film documentary seems worth supporting.

There’s an interview with some of the people involved.
