    "7:11 am 21 Mar 03 - world poetry day

    Last Friday was World Poetry Day. I was informed of this through a Singapore writer's mailing list. It was also very heartening for me that the info was accompanied by an affirmative message by a fellow poet, on the redemptive value of poetry in these troubled times."

    At least there is some (surprising) value and reach to the mailing list after all. Unlikely that such efforts could stop a war, but at least it is a way of sharing, conserving and letting some people let off collective steam.
