Still Singing LoveSongs

I just found this old  newspaper clipping from Friday, September 24, 1982, and it seems as if I am back to where I started twenty-eight years ago when I read from my first book of poems, Exodus and Other Poems,at the Ruth Stanford Lounge at the University of Miami.

Talk about synchronicity! Tonight at 6:30 p.m. I'll be reading from Dub Wise, my tenth book, at Oasis Deli at the Whitten University Center, University of Miami as part of the USpeak Series.

Give thanks to all the Idren and Sistren who have walked with me from those times and those whom I have just met in this trod through Babylon. It has been a long journey, but well worth the trip.

Oasis Deli at the Whitten University Center
University of Miami,

Geoffrey, it's only a matter of time when I will show up at one of your events in celebration of your work. God willing. I wish you all the blessings this evening. Peace, big brother.
