The Winter Solstice loometh once again
and the Water Rats will be huddled in their lair,
sharing words of wit, warmth and wisdom
to keep the wicked winds of winter at bay.
Speaking of “bay”, that’s exactly where this month’s
fabulous Feature poet, the right esteemed
will be coming from. Byron Bay that is.
This respected Elder from amongst our Poetic Cousins across the border, is a man with Poetry at the core of his being. A Poetic Fixture of the NSW North Coast scene, where he hosts, amongst other ventures, the long running “Writers at the Rails”, he has been writing, teaching and promoting poetry there for over twenty years.
His poems, it has been said, “are polished perfection like the smooth black pebbles washed up on the shores of Seven Mile Beach. His words a breath of fresh sea air with the tang of woodsmoke”.
He has performed his work worldwide.
A sampling of his poetry, and further information on his various activities, can be viewed at:
Yes, it’s always a memorable occasion
when David comes to town, and it’s been far too long since he last appeared, in your humble narrators opinion. So be sure not to miss the opportunity of eye-witnessing this polished poetic performer in person.
MID-WINTER MYSTERY MUSICIAN
for this Solstice gathering will be Kurilpa’s favourite
who will be sure to keep the midwinter Blues away with her vivacious vibes, infectious smile, and her toe-tapping, heart-warming mix of rockin’ originals and Juke Box classics. Come watch this crazy diamond shine on!
Meanwhile, providing the requisite Eye-Candy up on the Virtual Gallery’s Big Screen this month,
our Visual Arts Director, the ever encyclopedic Shane K, will be bringing us the Art
of 20th Century American Modernist
His work, described as “brash, bold and colourful”, was also deeply political in inspiration. Elements of his Art was also seen as influential in the development of the later Pop Art movement.
