TERRA (a poetry and music C.D./total playing time 44 minutes) read by Hale Thatcher guitar by Mila Hale Thatcher is a poet and the author of 12 books. TERRA, his epic poem, rekindles the bardic tradition and gives a sense of sacredness toward the earth. 'I like Hale Thatcher's poetry because it comes to the edge of the supernatural and then stays there. But it is really our own shared world; the natural perceived with such pure wonder through such clear senses, that it seems supernatural. And it's very beautiful writing.' Thom Gunn 'Not just a nature poet,Hale Thatcher is a primitive, a visionary. He is to poetry what Henri Rousseau is to painting.' Patrick Brinton Mila is a master musician and composer from Newport Washington. His music has also been used in films, theatre and modern dance choreography. 'Mila is a world class stringed-instrument musician' Jens Lund, Washington State Arts Commission folklorist 'an accomplished fingerstyle player...Mila displays great sensitivity and passion...'
