Radio with DJ Judih! Spirit World Restless #3

Spirit World Restless #3

Back about eight years ago I put together a 2nd radio show for Spirit Plants Radio. It was a fascinating  conversation between Ray Soulard Jr and myself, and a unique experience that I hoped to repeat. Then, life brought on studies, the chance to join MindCet and build a mindfulness platform for schools and the usual assortment of other projects. The parade of life marched on, until along came the Corona virus.

So, here I am, not biking to school to teach or taking trains to University to study. And so, it’s a perfect time for a new radio show.

You’ll find a mix of poetry and haiku, some from the vaults but spookily relevant, with a few of my current favourite music choices.

Listen to Lou Reed with Dr. John, Cyndi Lauper, Sting with Branford Marsalis and Fragile with Stevie Wonder, Red Band with Marina Maximillian, The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison and KD Lang and the Women’s Ensemble Tutarchela singing Heyamoli, I Know you Rider with the Grateful Dead and a final wrap-up with a tune called Acceptance by ‘Makor Haim’ The Source of Life.

Spirit World Restless #2, my second show, is a conversation with Raymond Soulard, Jr, host of SpiritPlants radio.

We talk a little about how I got to a kibbutz in Israel, how art influences my writing and associations linked to all that.  

This is a conversation from back in 2011, but still relevant.

Poet as Hermit

It’s not because I’m not thinking of you. It’s more because all of the poets I want to interview are not speaking.

So, to offer something up during this interlude, this:

poet as hermit 

cobwebs cement hinges of doors unopened
poet as hermit
etched by etchings
pencil stubs sub for friendship
no reason to mend torn gloves
sockless in sobriety
all thought golden
left unsaid
audio recordings track upon track
symphonies of voices
fly under radar
treasure troves gone with a click of ‘delete’
no one the wiser
but poet, the hermit,
snickers at elusive human attachment
from birth to death
all looks, aloof, alleviated by sleep
a latched door away
until stretchers slide silently
into unmarked graves

note: i wrote this on June 18th, but it takes on new force with the death of Amy Winehouse
