SAMPLE ENDORSEMENTS
I love the work you are doing with Rilke, Rumi, etc. Very beautiful! - COLEMAN BARKS (translator, poet)

I like these musical arrangements very much. Of course, your taste in music is the best and the music seems to complement, amplify and uplift the words in a way that really enhances the experience. These are great! - ALISON LUTERMAN (poet)

The poem has had to blush at being done up in so classy a fashion. Your setting and all the performances have certainly done my poem proud. Deep thanks for that. The Rilke is superb as well. This looks like a great project, period. - TOM CLARK (poet)
