Tom Kimmel’s June News-in-Brief

June Greetings Everyone! 

“Humid subtropical” is the climate category we fall into here in Mississippi, and it's an apt term for our fast arriving summer. Hard to imagine that when I was a boy in nearby Alabama we didn’t have air conditioning, but then again I didn't know what I was missing. Today? Hey you know what they say about luxuries becoming necessities! 

OK, and now the news.

4. Studio Report 

I have been busy in my Hattiesburg studio with an as-yet-unnamed new Nashville duo’s EP, and we had a blast here last week recording the guys' overdubs… 

…and I’ve also recorded classical solo pieces for the talented Cuban violinist Alejandro Junco Romero… 

…and I've worked again recording oboist Galit Kaunitz, who brought along the amazing vocalist David Walker. 

I’d LOVE to share a sampler of these works with you—and I hope to do that in the future.

5. TK Poem-of-the-Month 
—I wrote this one 4-5 years ago, filed it away and forgot about it. 

Home 

There's nowhere I feel much at home. 
Sure, here or there 
for a minute or a day, 
in your arms for a night 
or an afternoon 
—in church the odd morning, 
the walk in the rain, 
the breath for the high note, 
the next line or verse, 
the rest in the hollow of the song. 
Yet rarely the same place twice, 
and never for anywhere long.

6. Food for Thought… for Writers & Readers 

“Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. … If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.” 
—Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943), poet 

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” 
—Joseph Brodsky (1940-1996), Russian-American poet

Till next time, Maximum Peace, Love and Understanding, 
TK
