From the Foreword: My friend, Meri St. Mary, asked me
if I would show up for the 23rd Anniversary of her HOUSECOAT PROJECT and
read a few poems before the performance. Her new band was coming up from
San Francisco and she had never played a HOUSECOAT gig in her new home
town of Grass Valley. It sounded like a great time and I assured her I
would show up and read something from my new release, OFFERINGS.
The date of the performance was
July 30, 2011 and I set aside a few poems to read from my book,
OFFERINGS, a couple of weeks prior. I was set. Not much left to do but
live life and enjoy the mountain air.
I offer it here in tribute to this
unique evening as I doubt it will ever be captured the same again. Never
forget the power of the word.....REVOLUTION!
