One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Greetings, Toads! To welcome the new year, I give you beauty and inspiration from Ali and Toumani, the Grammy-award-winning album of duets from two of Africa’s most distinguished musicians, the late guitarist Ali Farka Touré and kora player Toumani Diabaté. Enjoy!




Watch, listen, feel. Write what comes. Share with us. Thank you, and Happy New Year!
