Tom Kimmel's Official Fall News

Official Fall Greetings Everybody! 

Boy oh boy, the colors of the old trees in Midtown Memphis are coming alive. I’m crazy about these trees! 

Of course the seasons don’t change so noticeably everywhere, and south of the equator you’re slipping into spring. Wherever you are I pray you’re held in some kind of good love and appreciating the changing light.

2. Writing retreat on Crete next summer (July 11-18, 2022) 

I’m excited to be invited to teach again in Lendas, Crete—my third opportunity to share a workshop in Greece with talented Swedish artist Eva Hillered. The little town of Lendas is a magical setting over the Mediterranean, and the community of writers the retreats attract are the brightest of spirits. 

Details coming soon... 

For inquiries now: 

Email Eva from her artist site HERE . (See Kontakt and E-Post at lower left of her web page to email her).

5. TK Poem of the Month 

When I Left Memphis 

When I left Memphis 
I was three years old 
But I came back home today 
To a room six blocks 
From my sister’s house 
And a mile from my father’s grave. 
And I haven’t been yet 
To the graveside 
But it’s there by the side of the road 
And it waits for me ever so patiently. 
It knows what it knows what it knows.

6. Recommended: “39 Pink Flamingos” by Craig Carothers 

Old friend Carothers has long been an inspiration. He's the consummate writer/artist/producer, and his infectious grooves and dark poetry draw you in deep. 

Visit Craig's website HERE. 

Stream the album at Apple Music, Tidal, Pandora, YouTube Music or Amazon Music.

7. Food for Thought: Ellen Hinsley on the true power of poetry 

"Contrary to a generally held view, poetry is a very powerful tool because poetry is the conscience of a society…. No individual poem can stop a war…. But poetry is an independent ambassador for conscience. It answers to no one, it crosses borders without a passport, and it speaks the truth." 

—Ellen Hinsey (b. 1960), poet 
...From an interview with Poetry Magazine. (Thanks to Writers Almanac.)

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

    For an avid gamer, gaming is a sport of sorts that requires constant training, effort, and dedication.
