Hey all, I'm still waiting for a handful of definitely-will-join people to join!

In the meantime, check out the new front page feature, "Who's a Poet," and the developing resource on WNC poets and poetry happenings. /Rob

Rob -

I'm all about theatre in politics - in fact I think they are almost one in the same.
It can be effective too - "laughter is the quickest connection between two people" - the braveheart folks who showed up last week with painted faces & cardboard pitchforks at the Commissioners meeting certainly got their point across and made for an enjoyable & memorable spectacle without really disturbing the piece.
Working on the Parkside project, last summer we considered dressing someone up as the ghost of George W. Pack and sending them into public comment in order to make a point.

Yes - there are lots of opportunities to be creative in this world - & I am all about applying creativity on every level of life.

I don't know where to start--because there are so many possibilities, but we'll just have to trust we'll follow lots of different threads, and not worry about dangling one. It's not the worst thing to be called a thread-dangler.

I was talking with Sebastian--who should be appearing here soon--about using City Council and County Commissioner meetings as a stage. My idea is not to give a performance that seems like an alien appearance (from Planet Artist)--though that would be fun, too--but to give an ultra-commenter presentation. If we studied the three-minute citizen comment art form, what would be the most intense and most effective representation of that? That would be a kind of poetry.

I'm also interested in lullabys, communal rituals, commercials, epics, romance, journalism, and skywriting.

What a perfect way to put the art of prose.
It often works when flowing with the rhythm of music.
There is something about the freestyle of creation that is almost tapping into the rhythmic heartbeat of creation itself.

This group is right down my alley, as I seek to define poetry. Words have already failed in their frailty. The definition seems to encompass God, and that will take more tools than written language. The more I learn to write the more I learn there's so much more to learn.
