Accept my humble thanks via a poem, more specifically my reading of  "When Giving is All We Have” by Alberto Ríos. 

***

Thank you for listening to my reading of “When Giving is All We Have” by Alberto Ríos.


To quote Poets.org, “Born in 1952, Alberto Ríos is the inaugural state poet laureate of Arizona and the author of many poetry collections, including  A Small Story about the Sky (Copper Canyon Press, 2015). In 1981, he received the Walt Whitman Award for his collection Whispering to Fool the Wind (Sheep Meadow Press, 1982). He currently serves as a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets.”

Traverse the pitfalls of life with two would-be, can’t-be, won’t be lovers in "To Protect the Innocent."

Elizabeth Peterson is an educator, mathematician, and playwright who can be found between New England, Scotland, and Canada. She likes logic and words, and her favorite words are syzygy, eleemosynary, and logodaedaly. You can read her theatre reviews and thoughts on the world at her website, https://mathematicalmedievalist.wordpress.com/. It was a real treat for us all to hear her dulcet voice in place of my usual droning.  Hopefully, we’ll hear even more from her soon, both as a voice actor and as an author.

Well, friends, we made it.  I can finally say it…

Hello and welcome to episode fifty of Prose.

This week, traverse the pitfalls of life with two would-be, can’t-be, won’t be lovers. Then, endure the unknown on a trail with young Telo. Lastly, accept my humble thanks via a poem.

Just, wow, people.  Thank you all SO much for sticking with me for this long.  Some loose math on what, precisely, we’ve encountered thus far on our journey together is in order.  Again, loosely, we have wandered through around 70 hours of tales, philosophical meanderings, poems, and histories over the course of a little over 150 original episodes. Those numbers include two Christmas specials, two Easter specials, a New Year’s Eve special, some random thank-you specials, and, most recently, a Valentine’s Day special. 

As per my normal pleas, I hope that you’ll all go follow the show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, as this can help the podcast get noticed; but, I truly beg you even more to head over  to iTunes and leave a rating and/or review for Prose.  Ratings and reviews set this show up for continuing into the future.  For easiest access to the show, subscribe using iTunes, Google Play, or whatever podcast catcher is your favorite. 

Thanks for listening.  Let’s get to the tales, shall we?

This week we have “To Protect the Innocent,” Ants of the Fire: The Legend of Telo  Parts XI and XII titled “Alone” and “The Trail,” and my reading of “When Giving is All We Have” by Alberto Ríos.  All that being said, maybe there are more surprises coming your way, too…

Enjoy, and, one more time for the record.  THANK YOU.

Feb 14, 2018

Happy Valentine's Day to those who celebrate!  To those who don't, stick around. We'll have some fun today, too.

For the holiday, Prose is proud nine poems of sensuous, sumptuous loooooooove, plus plus some fun musical interpretation at the end. Today we have:

"The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" by Christopher Marlowe, Sonnets 18 and 130 by William Shakespeare, "The Definition of Love" by Andrew Marvell, "Love's Philosophy" by Percy Bysshe Shelley, "Meeting at Night" by Robert Browning, and three original poems be me, Jared I. Magee - "Because You've Cut Our Lives Together Short," "Asclepius," and "The Lion and the Raven."

Enjoy!

Hello and welcome to episode forty-seven of Prose.

This week, get a second chance at youth and vitality if you’ll swallow a space worm and see what happens to our intrepid explorers, Nurse and Telo, after the adrenaline of taking down some big game from last week’s adventure.

I’m sure everyone is fully aware that we’re tackling a New Years Eve episode, though this is coming out quite early to be labeled as such.  Still, keep your eyes open for other potential surprises beyond our general episodes, and do ring in 2018 safely and surrounded by those you love and that love you in return. 

As per my normal pleas, I hope that you’ll all go follow the show on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, as this can help the podcast get noticed; but, I truly beg you even more to head over  to iTunes and leave a rating and/or review for Prose.  Ratings and reviews set this show up for continuing into the future.  For easiest access to the show, subscribe using iTunes, Google Play, or whatever podcast catcher is your favorite.  

Thanks for listening.  Let’s get to the tales, shall we? 

This week we have “Slim Worms for Sale Now!” and Ants of the Fire: The Legend of Telo – Parts V and VI: “Arguments” and “The Sound.”

Enjoy.
