the YES blogger preview in sf last night was a great fun event. we had two youth poetry slammers who were the highlight. if you havent seen them before check out youthspeaks.org. it was interesting to hear at the afterparty that YES spoke to so many people in so many different ways. sally potter is more than a film maker and composer, she is a poet (that i get) providing insights and reflections on our culture and the complicated issues we face both internally (can we stay married and happy?) and externally (are we hypocritical in our belief that we’re ‘helping’ in places like iraq and beirut?).
