Krista Tippett at Stanford!!

Today I went to see Krista Tippett at Stanford. She is there through March as a "Distinguished Visitor." She had a conversation with Abraham Verghese and Denise Pope. It will be a podcast someday -- cool to think I was there!

At one point Abraham Verghese was going to read this poem, but he got too choked up and asked Denise Pope to read it for him. It is beautiful.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I took a couple pictures from my seat.
