With no television in our home, radio is a cherished way of connecting to the world. Listening to NPR’s Terry Gross give an interview is it’s own form of poetry. In July, I was interviewed by Carol Newman on Coast Commmunity Radio in Astoria, Oregon, just prior to a reading at Lucy’s Books. In an old victorian house located high on a hill, the windows of Coast Community Radio overlook the wide stretch of the Columbia River just before it meets the Pacific Ocean. On a clear July day, when Astoria looks every bit like San Francisco, Carol and I talked together about the journey and inspiration of Wild Feminine. We had a lovely conversation that you can listen in on at the link above.
