You have to meet Doug Anderson, Pamela told us the first time we visited Blue Star Eqiculture.   He was drawn to  Blue Star when he stopped to take pictures of the horses.  Doug is a writer and photographer, a wise and kind man.  He’s also an award winning poet.

Doug visited us for a couple of days and we all  got to know each other a little better.  While he was here he met our friend Scott Carrino and became a member of Jon’s Fabulous Old Men’s Club.  So I know he’ll be coming back to visit again, and he’s always welcome.  He has lots of interesting ideas and  his conversation is speckled with poetic phrases. He’s a pleasure to be around.

Doug will be reading his poems from his new book “Horse Medicine” at the Bedlam Farm Open House, just two weeks from now.    He’ll also be selling his book.  Before he left this morning,   I asked him to read his poem “Live Myth” one of my favorites, so I could video it.  I was curious to hear Doug read his poetry out loud.   I wasn’t surprised, but was moved when he read it with so much emotion.

You can click here to hear Doug reading “Live Myth”.  And you can read more about Doug and buy his books here.

Or you can meet him and hear him read in person at the Open House the weekend of June 27th and 28th.
