  • Love Never Fails
    For Kara Johnstad and Fabrizio Pigliucci

  • Shipfitter's Wife by Dorianne Laux spoken by Kara Johnstad, music Fabrizio Pigliucci

    Here is a review from Goodreads I just stumbled upon. Dorianne Laux'sPoetry Collection - Smoke.

    Melancholic.. Poignant.. Sarcastic.. An honest and moody tone.. A continuous provocation of visual images. It's like she is narrating her daily life, her breakdowns and her nostalgic memories with a simple yet a very surprising language .. Beautiful

    I was introduced to Laux' poetry after randomly reading her poem titled "Shipfitter's Wife" from this collection titled "Smoke".
    Here is a video of the poem recited by Kara Johnstad and accompanied with music by Fabrizio Pigliucci.

  • The Wise Woman and The Stone, music Kara Johnstad, voice M.J. Hummingway

    A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. 
    The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. 
    "I've been thinking," he said, "I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back to you in hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone."
