Ruigoord: VURIGE TONGEN (Fiery Tongues)

May 23rd turned out to be a good day. A trip with John Sinclair and Raymond Wiley to the famous Temporary Autonomous Zone, or even Permanent Autonmous Zone that is Ruigoord. And the fiery tongues festival

A feasty feastival of Fiery tongues, poets from across the globe congressed in a small wooden house, a kind of comfortable front living room setting, with an inviting air of calm and an attentive 'listening' audience of fellow artists, shamans and wordsmiths.

I felt my ears buzzing throughout each performance. I used my Zoom' recorder and Casio camera to 'capture' some of the mind warming poets. I especially enjoyed the intimate setting, relaxed, open, light, friendly; that further resonated with the messages of bards, diverse and unpredictable, soft and sweet and often loud and searing sheets of nowness. I thought, after hearing them, 'live' unleashing fierey tongue fu' flames of cool.
