Native writers gather in Arizona

Name: Rob Schmidt
The three-day gatheringâ”running concurrently with the month-long instituteâ”will feature lectures and workshop sessions led by prominent Indian poets and writers from across the continental United States and beyond.
Wordsmiths slated to participate include Diné (Navajo) writer Sherwin Bitsui, a Tucson resident whose poetry recently earned him a $40,000 prize from the 2006 Whiting Writers' Awards, and Tlingit linguist Nora Marks Dauenhauer of Alaska.
"Here in Southern Arizona we have such a rich community of indigenous writers. We tried to create a mix of poets. Some write in indigenous languages like Rex Lee Jim. We have poets who incorporate their own language into English and we have diversity in both theme and tribal affiliation. It was hard to choose. There are so many incredible native writers."

Frances Sjoberg, literary director for the poetry center, said a symposium like this has been an idea two years in the making.

Tropical Storm Barry and Public Trust - The Hurricane Season Begins...

Having exposed some of the censorship of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) by the Bush administration, the arrival of "tropical storm" Barry is making me wonder just how much accurate information we are getting - and also because I am in Barry's path as it makes it way through Florida.

god of desire, Kamadeva, and his consort, Rati, are carved on the
inside of the courtyard wall for visitors just entering, or just
leaving. How appropriate to be reminded of the powerful pull of
desire both before and after visiting a temple.

In the 8th and 9th centuries CE, the Kailash Cave Temple was carved out of the volcanic rock which formed countless plateaus in the western ghats (small mountain range), part of the geological formation known as the Deccan Plateau. Part of a group of 34 caves built into the side of this plateau, Kailash, cave number 16, is monumental by any standards. The Kailash rock-cut temple stands 30 metres (99 feet) high, 52 metres (170 feet) in length, and 33 metres (108 feet) wide. The other 33 caves, Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain, were dug into the side of the plateau much like other cave dwellings, but Kailash appears to have been literally excavated from the top in order to create a free-standing temple encircled by smaller cave shrines, the entire complex carved out of the same black rock.
