Three Beautiful Things 03/07/11: Wild Geese, Wild Variety, Wild Play

1.  Kathryn composed a piece for the French horn inspired by Mary Oliver's "Wild Geese".  She recorded herself reading the poem out loud and herself playing her composition on her French horn.  It's gorgeous.  Her understanding of the poem radiated through her composition and her playing.  My Introduction to Poetry class got to hear the recording today.  Gorgeous.

2.  ee cummings, Pablo Neruda, Jessica's presentation, listening to Dylan Thomas read, George Bilgere:  what a wild blend of treats and spicy pleasures in Introduction to Poetry.

3.  Even as rough and wild as our first run through Act I was tonight, I can see how this production of "The Taming of the Shrew" is taking form and I like what I see.

RP: I'm glad that was a candid, HA! However, since it was candid I have to wonder from the look revealed in your eyes whether you were about to be abducted by aliens! Just kidding!

I love this poem by Mary Oliver. I would love to hear the piece of music.
