“You don’t need to go looking for answers. Probably the best way to find them is to stop looking for them, in the sense of being still and being in one place.” These words from Thomas Rain Crowe come straight from his own experience. After following the poet’s path through Ireland, France, and the beat neighborhoods of San Francisco, he found a different rhythm and a different muse in the Appalachian woods of North Carolina. He spent four years living in the shadows of Thoreau and wizened moonshiners, and found unexpected answers in the simple rhythms and sounds of nature. He discovered his own self-sufficiency, a deep and familial relationship with wildlife, and an ability to allow inspiration to speak through him in ways his cognitive mind never could. In his readings, Mr. Crowe’s poetry demonstrates a rare blend of intuition and groundedness, a Zen quality that shines through the simple words of a mountain man. (hosted by Michael Toms)
