Follow the youtube link below to hear me reading (about 43 minutes long) from my first full-length manuscript of ecstatic poetry entitled, “what holds her” with commentary about my recent solo show of visual art, “the surprising.”
It was recorded at Intermezzo Gallery in Boerne, Texas on Nov. 1, 2014. I also make comments about my artistic process.
And TADA! make my debut (HA!) as a singer/songwriter, singing two new songs written during the making of the art for this show.
Fast forward to about minute 26 if you just want to hear the songs & a little of their back-story. The first song, “love seeks it own,” was received just after completion of the fourth painting in the series also entitled “love seeks its own,” after the song.
