The late poet Allen Ginsberg sitting for a photo. Boulder, Colorado. 1991. Hard to believe he's been dead for a decade, now. Boulder doesn't seem quite the same to me anymore without his annual summer readings there.
I spent the weekend watching the extras included on the two-DVD set of Jerry Aronson's documentary on the writer, The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg. I was mightily impressed by how Ginsberg approached his own imminent death, phoning his best friends, finding joy in the midst of the inevitable.
Here are excerpts from an interview I conducted with Ginsberg.
Om, poet. Om.
