Poetry of the Senses: A Celebration of Pablo Neruda’s Poetry.
I organized this event because–I love his poetry and also wanted give people an experience that touched their senses. There was Carlo and I reading in Spanish and in English; a lovely cold drink of locally made cider with a leaf of mint from my plant floating in it; trays of summer fruits; and at mid-point in the evening, a delicious sweet handed round. There was also a slowly changing slide show of Chile’s environment. So–the evening fed our hearing, seeing, tasting–! And gave inspiration to people to create their own thoughts on the cards with a pencil attached that were on every seat. We had a full house attending!
