Words into food10/11/2010 Duration: 04min
This is a special broadcast announcement seeking your help this holiday season to feed and assist the homeless. In this day and age, things are hard for everyone, but that does not mean that we are incapable of helping each other. Even if all you can give is 25 cents, you will have helped to feed someone with even less then you. All it takes to become a community that begins to heal itself, is to be willing to believe that what you have to offer can help. One city at a time, we will come together to raise our brothers and sisters up and out of want. For we need all the members of our community to help us create a better world, and sometimes, that means giving what we can to help, even if what we can give means we may choose to go without for a while so we can assure that someone else can begin.So this Thanksgiving, let’s turn Words into FoodJoin Loveandwords,Wordmachinist,Womansmojorising, Grace Independent, Ron Ash, gotPoetry, From the R.I.P, Sunday Radio and the Culture Networkas we help make community happ

Join host Cassandra Tribe and special guest, Michael Edigio Quigg, as they read from The Letters of Robert Browning and Elisabeth Barrett Barrett (volume 1: 1845-1846)on a special one hour episode of Sunday Radio. Robert Browning and Elisabeth Barrett Barrett (Elisabeth Barrett Browning) are known as much for their individual works as writers as for the nature of their romance. Their marriage had a sense of spiritual kinship and shared artistic purpose that has been an inspiration to all who have come to know their story. Nowhere is this so evident then in the letters they shared during their early courtship and that grew into a powerful union of passion, poetry and commitment. This book was first published in 1900 by Smith, Elder & Company in England and was edited by Robert Browning.The letters in this volume cover the beginning of their relationships, courtship and their eventual elopement and secret marriage in 1846.
