Seamus Heaney Speaks

I had a wee bit of a chat with Seamus.

My drawing-of-the-day is of a black tie champagne reception for Seamus Heaney, Nobel Prize winning Irish poet, and honored guest of the Mercantile Library’s 25th Niehoff Lecture.

He was thoughtful and considered his words as we spoke, and the slow pace was somehow comforting.   After a formal dinner, the poetry reading.   Mr. Heaney’s words, already powerful on the page, became even more beautiful and poignant transformed by his voice.
