World Poetry Celebrates AUDREY P. FRANKLYN!

 

 

Ariadne’s Notes: On August 10, 1-2 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM, we had the privilege of welcoming   a “Living Legend” Audrey P. Franklyn  who has had a fascinating career and still continues. Her stories about how she got started and went on to tremendous heights was memorable . Unique creativity and hard work, exploring new possibilities all were a major part of her success. Audrey also spoke about her long term relationship with Ella Fitzgerald and others. The stories made for a fascinating interview. From the feedback of World Poetry participants, the interview was really meaningful to them.  As I move into the field of promotion, especially for youth, the program was also very meaningful to me. 

Thanks also to the special Tech Kerry who took Victor’s place and to special volunteer Sharon Rowe who helped make the show possible.

We also featured our advisor and long term friend from Mongolia  Dr. Hadda Sendoo with his e-poem The Wind from The World Poetry Almanac and music from our partners  Braitwaite and Katz Communications with the lovely voice of: Daniela Schachter, CD, A tribute to Jimmy Van Heusen.

World Poetry would like to welcome a new listener from Guam, making a total of 98 countries.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, BEGIN IT. Boldness has GENIUS, POWER, and MAGIC in it. ~ Goethe ~

Beginning; The End

In the continual flow

of lifes spiral,

we see ourselves

reflected in the light

of cosmic ether:

glowing, pure, immortal.

Though our mortal bodies

die, there is no death.

Passing between worlds

with the light speed

of soul ~ tis then we are whole.

Mortal vessel, unable

to transcend, must be

left behind, will never mend.

The beginning, is always

found at the end.
