Whitman Project

Organized by Poet, David Oats.  Portland poets and Whitman lovers converged October 20, 2010 to read all 52 sections of Leaves of Grass at PNCA.   I read section 46.  Sitting through all 56 sections, listening to Whitman's voice through so many voices was a dream come true.  Whitman's book sleeps by my bed and is an old companion, but hearing his proclamations outloud in 52 waves I drowned in its beauty.
