GREAT READING/GREAT EVENING

Terry Winch's reading, with the help of poet and moderator David Lehman, at The New School tonight (actually last night now) was one of the great ones, with poetry legend John Godfrey in attendance, as well as prose legend Dale Herd, and sundry other legendary folk from the NYC downtown poetry scene back in the day (and still) Elenor Nauen and Simon Pettet [and Johnny Stanton], and the Brooklyn maestro and misstro Bob Hershon and Donna Brook, as well as old friends great to see (like Beth and Lisa et. al.).

One of those nights that makes the struggle to create original art from words or notes or paint or etc. all worth it, no matter how much the mainstream world pays attention or not. An energizing, inspiring, very laugh inducing as well as thought provoking Winch word jam session I wish had been filmed and uploaded to YouTube immediately. But I suspect it weren't. So, if you weren't there, you'll just have to take my word for it and do your best to be at the next one wherever and whenever that might be.
