First - A huge Thank You to all of the poets who contributed their words.  Brochures will be in your mail soon.

Now, as all good things come to an end, there is some not-so-good news as well.  This year's taping was, once again, held outside.  Local television programming being what it is, and with limited funding, our local station has yet to acquire all of the necessary tools and equipment to make for a faultless delivery.  And, I truly believe, if you haven't read it in my poetry, Kansas is a truly Windy State!!!!  Kansa means, after all..."swift wind".  So...the sound on the tape is not all that good...

and then...I was first told to give 10 minutes worth of reading.  When I arrived at the station, they said "stretch it".  Hmmm....So I tried to stretch it, and truth be told, I should have left well enough alone.  Two of our contributing poets poems were not read, and I apologize for that.  You will be getting a private e-mail from me regarding same.

So, for those whom I name below, if you still wish to have a copy of the video, sign in please...and if not, I more than understand.  You WILL be getting two copies of the brochure, however.

I left brochures at the station.  There are a lot of art lovers and poetry readers in Salina.  If I am contacted by any of them about you and your poetry, I will take it upon myself to take their name and address and I will then contact you myself, provide any input they give, and if you wish to follow up with them, then it will be in your hands.

You were all awesome....

Will the following poets please take a bow?

Bradley Stott - Concrete Mattress
Donna Smith - One Voice
Betty Lou Hebert - I'd Like to Live Forever
Titia Geertman - Our Freedom of Speech
Kellie Cantrell - In the Depths of a Homeless Child's Eyes
Jeffrey Carter - Color of Freedom
Dawn van Krieken - Not a Dime
Barry Tackett - Taps
Maree Russo - Serenity
Jo Powell - Parchment Picture
Susan Caldwell - Facing Death

Beautiful poetry, poets.  A huge heart-hug for making my day so wonderful!

Karilea,

I thank you so much for thinking of us and letting us share our words with the viewing audience.  

I for one would love a copy of the tape...just tell me how, when and where.

I'm already looking forward to next year.
It was a pleasure to co÷perate and I don't mind if it was mine that wasn't read, it's the thought that counts.

Thanks for giving us that opportunity Karilea.

Hi K! I got the letter you sent with the brochures today, and I must say they look phenominal! Thank you for taking the time to write the personal note; it made this endeavor all the more worthwhile. Can't wait to do this again next year!

Karilea...

at first,  I thought I was getting something
from a collection agency....then...DUHHHH,
it hit me and I figured it out.  

Thanx much for the brochures,  very well
put together.  And your little note hit
the spot as well.  It was a pleasure being
able to be a part of that day.  I know you
did us well.  Thank You again!!!
