I love this quote. "Poetry is a portal for higher consciousness. It transports the listener into deep remembrance and awakens the fire of the soul. It gives voice to what would otherwise be inexpressible — using the mother tongue of rivers and stars translated into words and the silence that holds them." Poet, Andrea Freeman, MSc (reads at Many Rivers Books and Tea in Sebastopol April 3)
