Dear Jennifer and Team of the McGregor Poetry Festival
Difficult to THANK you all adequately for all the work that made this event possible – probably the work doesn’t get easier or less, being that running the previous Fests have built up a Track of Capacities and Skills – .
Please convey my individual G R E A T T H A N K S TO ALL WHO WERE PART OF THE SEAMLESS AND WONDERFUL CELEBRATORY weekend of Poetic Madness’. Your team that organized, hosted, funded, drove, swept – breathed as it all came together and GALLOPED through its track .
ENJOYED is too feeble a word to describe the EXUBERANCE – INSPIRITED – SPIRITED – SOULFUL – -SPIRIT-FUL-WISE & WONDERFUL inputs and outputs from the tribe and troop of McGregor poets, poetry and poetics.
Together, it seems that we ARE MARCHING TO THE HALLELUJAH chorus.
So many heartfelt and heart-breaking stories – words – people
So much deep wisdom in POETRY, in the soul and mind of POETS . So much Skill and Endeavour – Hope, faith and Love. So much Sacrifice and Prayer at the throne of the Gods and Goddesses of the Poetic realms – as they descended into the multitudes to feast on the many wordsmiths, old and young, experienced and newly-come, mentors and learners – all working for The Light.
And as we weave back into familiar ways – we shall all be re-inspired in this Great Work, and we shall set to, again – renewed, refreshed – filled with the Light of Truth, beauty, Goodness. Companioned. Holding the flame of connection with many travelling the same Journeys. Raising the flag of the Poetic Kingdoms H I G H as we settle back and down to our work in the world.
G R E A T T H A N KK S – to you especially, to the Team just as especially, and all McGregor
May you R E S T in P E A C E and C O N T E N T M E N T for some while, sit in the sun and remember, remember, call up the loveliness and sleep the sleep of the ‘well done thou good and faithful servant’
I have sent most of this , separately, to Billy
Love to you Jennifer
