We wished her a happy birthday on November 19. You can read that post by clicking HERE (it includes a link to some of her poems).
On the synchronicity front, yesterday I received a postcard (actually it came two days ago, but we are letting our mail "percolate" for 24 hours in the mailbox outside before we bring it into the house for fear of exposure to the coronavirus currently plaguing the world) from my friend, Kerouac biographer Gerry Nicosia, and it just so happened to be the Allen Ginsberg picture of Joanne Kyger and Gary Snyder on a dock in the Sea of Japan. Gerry mentioned in his card that he knew Joanne quite well and that she was "lively, witty, + lots of fun!"
|The aforementioned postcard on my laptop (BTW, that Google Chrome pic is Salzburg, Austria)|
RIP, Ms. Kyger.
