Come participate in our first literary salon of the season, a place for the community to engage with local authors and explore new ideas.
Sabrina Dalla Valle and company will perform a live reading of her new chapbook, “Bee as Timbral Space : a post geometric eclogue.” Published by Logosophia Press.
Each surface brushed with a trace of venom
or lace of fertile fire
like light penetrating through the canopy of an oak
nature : its own needle, sharp to thread the future
shakes the world into matter.
“To be a philosopher, a lover of wisdom, is to fall in love with fragments of unity, like the great Heraclitus who millennia ago said all things are one, no in and out, no I and Thou, no honey and venom. For the Greeks the bee was spirit and Dalla Valle has given us this vision of Unity, the humble bee as emissary to know tiny bits of energy as infinity. It is a perfect contemplation to know that in our gathering we and the bee are one.” -Richard G. Geldard, PhD, author of Emerson and Universal Mind and Remembering Heraclitus
