ABC interview

Recently ABC radio interviewed me for their programme "Encounter". The programme was about Buddhist poetry and I was one of the poets, along with Gary Gach, Jane Hirschfield, Tash Sudan, and Bill Porter. I took Kerry Stewart the producer on a ginko along a ridge in the Blue Mountains, talked haiku. You can find this programme by going to the ABC website , look for Radio National , then go to 'Encounter', and thence to Buddhist Poetry in the index. Wish I knew how to link it to this blog.
Your chance to go for a ginko wander is in 2 weeks, Sat October 8. What a good way to forget the woes of the world for a while!
