In a conversation that ranged from the eclectic to the earthy, with poems ranging from childhood memories of planting flowers to defiance of corrupt Authority figures, to even a few interruptions by noisy seagulls, poet Ruth Farr amused and delighted all who came to hear her. We made a recording of the event - check it out right here. Its about 45 mins long - enjoy.
