[MUSIC/POETRY] Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) was a famous poet, philosopher and artist born in Lebanon.
is by far his most well known book of 26 poetic essays, and has been translated into more than 20 languages. In it, he writes stuff like this (“On Love”): “For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you/Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning/Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun/So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.” Sigh. Yeah, like that. So apparently, this guy Felix is going to recite this all from memory along with musical accompaniment on guitar by Gerod. Expect a lot of head-nodding and slaphappy smiling. $6-$10 sliding scale. Mandala Ethnic Arts is located at 29 Baldwin Ave. in Paia.
