Sad News....


I just learned that poet Sekou Sundiata passed away July 18th from a heart attack. He was 58.

I saw him last year at the Skagit River Poetry Festival and he was a huge presence with so much to offer.

Here are links on where to send cards or a donation to the kidney foundation in his memory.

Here's an interview with him on NPR


Here's a link to more information on him at Poets.org.

This is sad news indeed. It hits home for me, since I've just been diagnosed with kidney damage.
