Vura's voices are a joy. His speaking voice, his perspective, and his poetry, each rings straight and true. We both love writing and it brings us such pleasure that we spend a good part of this episode laughing. Vura serves on the Hertfordshire County Council in the UK and has a background in project management, as well as giving his time and energy to youth and recovery work. For two people of different generation, location, and race, we find a foundation of brotherhood, and isn't that what's it's all about? Take a listen as we talk and as Vura reads a marvelous poem, Tranquil in the Hill , during our exploration of Poetry, the Sound of our Story. Vura is also a featured contributor ("The Agenda") to the upcoming book. Gender Crap, to be released May 15, 2023.
