Thank you for the superb photos of the night. Your poetic eye, caught the magic. Ah, poetry.
Wendy Morton

Thanks Don for these lovely photos. Great lighting! Everyone looks so profoundly connected to the poetry, which was wonderful
By the way that’s Stephen Price sitting on the floor in front of Carla Funk.

Wouldn’t have missed it!! Bringhurst and Zwicky at the mic, and an audience packed with my favourite poets: Wynand, Lilburn, Price, Morton, Pelman, Levin, Porter and Funk. “Open the door. Sunlight and singing. All that we may ask.” Zwicky.

Keep “bringing” it on, Wendy.
