Water Aid - unbelievable Malawi story + Poem for @AJLeon No22/1080
16 September 2012 No 22 of 1,080 poems read in solidarity with nomad, misfit AJ Leon - who's in Los Angeles making ready to continue "Around the World in 1,080 Days".
This audio starts with a remarkable story of help given to people in villages in Malawi Africa. I don't expect you'll find it easy to swallow the story without checking it out. ( Go to http://www.thebigdig.org/ ) The poem here is by William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) - American, from Rutherford New Jersey. WCW came from English, Puerto Rican, French, Basque & Jewish "stock" - it says in Wikipedia. "My heart rouses..." - from "Journey to Love" (1955). This piece of poetry is quoted by David Whyte in his 1993 book "The Heart Aroused" ( do check him out) #pursuitofeverything #poem #poetry #american #LosAngeles #nomad #Africa #wateraid #fundraising #digitalstorytelling
