Poetry, Prose, Stories and Songs
“The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish.”
A warm casual gathering and reading of those words that have most comforted or inspired us in times of change.
Come and listen to our guest presenters.
Bring your own words to share if inspired to do so. Pieces can be from favourite writers or original works.
