Foreword by Al Young
This year’s topics included ancient historical sites and the subject of death. The poetry and art seemed to be yearning for connections rooted in the past. Death has always been a tiptoe subject, but the poets and artists confronted this theme as well. Amazing, really, how civilizations survived despite ongoing wars, plagues, diseases, political turmoil, and other cataclysmic events.
