At noon, Russell Eponym joined us for another hour of delightful music, prose, and poetry from the Poet Laureate of Ce Soir Arts. The Thought for the Day was outstanding, and music from Nickel Creek was most pleasing, as Russell brought us another chapter of the beloved Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (first published in 1908). We are enjoying the adventures of Mr. Toad, Mole, Ratty, and their companions, and look forward to the next installment, always read with great relish by the one-and-only Russell. Today, he also shared a bit from another favourite: Pam Ayres, MBE. She is charming in the extreme – and the humour is enchanting – especially as read by Russell. It was a fine hour, indeed – and now (whilst looking ahead to next week at The Magic Tree) we plan on gathering for 90 minutes of Russell‘s amazing folk, blues, and beyond at Chateau Ce Soir on Thursday! Come join us – it’s always a great time!
At 3 PM we had a new treat at The Magic Tree when outstanding British poets Eala Du and Moon Aerandir stopped in to enthrall us with their own original poems. Such rich imagery and emotion comes through their work! Eala, a gifted poet and reader, graced The Magic Tree with gentleness and power. Eala‘s voice danced lightly on the wind at The Magic Tree, even as her words touched the heart, weaving verse made of dreams and wonder, love and life…As you can see, we were in rapt attention for the entire time…and we look forward to another session with these two in the near future. Stay tuned!
