Mar. 21, Participated in a poetry reading event in Montreal, Canada

Ms. Flavia Garcia, a poet residing in Montreal, Canada, kindly invited me to take part in the Poetry Event called "Soirée de poésie et traduction" held on March 21, 2024, at La Sala Rossa, a live music club located in Montreal.

It was an extraordinary evening with 12 performers presenting their unique style of poetry in various languages.

I was deeply impressed by the attention to detail of the organizers. I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who commented after the performance that they were "moved" and "deeply healed."

I extend my special thanks to Mr. Osvaldo Rabunal, the musician who added the tongue drum background music to my performance.

Thank you all very much.
