-----Original Message----- From: Louisa Calio H Dr. Vito DeSimone's interview with Louisa Calio discussing and reading from her modern day epic poem: JOURNEY TO THE HEART WATERS will be aired on Long Island and New York Public Access Cable TV.(CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS) throughout the months of February and March. It is a two part series. A woman artist in search of love discovers a need to return to the ancient roots of the ancestors and journey inward to find the sources of love and life. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Harvard's renowned scholar has written," Calio's poetry is a veritable chiaroscuro of images woven together with a profound passion for the lyrical." Lucia Chiavola Birnbaum writes," the epic startles because it ...a liberation story of the third millennium being played out. Brilliant!" Robert Farris Thompson, Yale Professor of African Art and Religion writes that "Journey to the Heart Wasters has an exquisite power of translation.Reality becomes spirit time and again, because Louisa Calio is armed with a formidable translating power based on love."
