The Wall of Rembembrance at the Fairelands Junction. A place to remember, to ponder, to …wait. And smile.
Last night I attended the “Sounds of Poems”, a wonderful way to explore the place – zooming with my camera – while listening to several writers who read their, or other peoples, poems. I has something calming and relaxing, and I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already!
Since this Literary Festival is mainly readings done in voice, I made a short video – with sound! – as to give you a short impression. The readers are, in order of appearance, Adele Ward, Jolie Carter, Huckleberry Hax, and Sabreman Carter.
