The Sentimentalist has plenty of sentiments to share today — Ukraine to BLM to Roe. Watch his mind cast back over another crazy week! Happy Thursday. And thanks to Alyssa Muehmel, a hospital chaplain in Ann Arbor, Michigan, who shared this prayer.
Today on the Sentimentalist, Jack asks about places loaded with memories, talks about friends old and new in his workshops, shows the cover of the Ukrainian poetry collection, “Busy Griefs, Raw Towns,” whose design and printing have all been donated by Schuler Books so that all sales go to Ukrainian relief.
Jack welcomes Ada Limón, our new poet Laureate, and honors Joy Harjo, who leaves the post after three terms. And revisits “Recovery,” a new poem about a life with PTSD. Don’t forget to order your copy of the Ukranian Poetry Anthology, “Busy Griefs, Raw Towns,” available through Shuler books. Read all about it and order your copy here. All proceeds go straight to Ukranian Relief funds.
