When the Coffee House invited eco-poet Jeff Poniewaz to perform there in April 1988, Jeff expanded the invitation. He brought along approximately nine more environmental activist poets, and called our group The Earth Poets.
We're still here, four of the original members, Louisa Loveridge Gallas, Jeff Poniewaz, Harvey Taylor, and I, Suzanne Rosenblatt, with two great poet musicians, Jahmes Finlayson and Holly Haebig, added in. And we're about to give our 25th annual performances. We're still here trying to hook humans into awareness of how they treat planet earth. Most animals live in harmony with their environment; we've been honed to live not by instinct alone. And where has it gotten us? To the brink. And we're all tipping together. How do we stop in mid-tip?
