KW writes: Last night’s coffeehouse was interesting. I saw two musicians I hadn’t seen before. And, the “Bring Your Own Poetry” on the theme of love was wonderful. (One long-time PeaceSmithie read his first poem on stage! And, someone for whom it was his first time at PeaceSmiths read a poem!)

Wanted to share with everyone this video of PeaceSmiths regular Maxwell Corydon Wheat, Jr. reading a poem to his wife, Virginia Wheat. It was a magic moment at PeaceSmiths. Just in time for Valentine’s Day reflections…
