“I know he moves along the piers. Calls himself a “Journey Agent,” a
“Eulipion.” Says his friends, the poets and artists, the musicians are journey agents too.”
Betty H. Neals, for Rahsaan Roland Kirk
Theme for the Eulipions
Danny Cao: musician
Shawn Taylor: poet
D. Scot Miller: host
D. Scot Miller hosts this open event the first Tuesday of Every Month
at The Luggage Store Gallery that invites Eulipions who are Knot Frum Hear, to offer their gifts to fellow travelers. As D. Scot reveals his novel, chapter by chapter, and the event proceeds, artists will be invited back to the shores of Eulipia for an art exhibit and opening performance.
Visual artists, craftsfolks, photographers, if you’re knot frum hear, you’ll fit right in. Strikin’. All Feet. All Soul.
