Well……it was wonderful!
First, it was just so nice to be there again, on a world that held so many memories.
Second, it was just really special to read with such a loving and appreciative audience around me.
Here is the recording in an mp3 file of the whole reading, if you missed it. Just Click on the hyperlink and download or stream it: Karima’s Reading on Al Raqis.mp3
For about 50 minutes (I ran over the half hour mark) I read poetry in a place many times reserved for combat.
I want to thank the many people who sent photos they took at the event, many of which were of me, so it’s not that I just want to, flood my post with my photos, but some were really nice. Thank you Kage Stratten, Gamma Infinity, Natascha, Dale, Shepp, Mireille for these great memories of the event.
There were about 28 people present and many old and dearly loved friends, as well as new listeners
Thank you all for coming. It made this reading a very memorable one for me!
And the cutest couple in attendance goes to…………..
Was great reading at an imposing place
Thanks Nat for being there with me and some of these great pictures too!
I loved your reading! I feel so bad for not being there live, but I am thankful for the recording. I listened to it twice on headphones. I know of only one person that could personify a coat. ” A loyal bodyguard. Or of only one writer that could dig so deep in the philosophical well and be able to find…”In our dreams we think we are the owners, but all is rented here.” I know who the Spice Girl is, and that her spices are glorious words and phrases that she casts toward the breezes for all to feel. What a generous gift ruca.
