Janet Kuypers’ poetry show from “Greatest Love” w/ music
Exalted Love

Exalted Love chapbook     Below are writing links, video links and images from a February 4th 2017 (2/4/17, or 20170204) poetry performance of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through “Greatest Love” live at the Bahá’í Faith Center (at 2215 E M Franklin Ave, Austin, TX 78723).

    The theme of the night with other features was about not just love (because Valentine’s Day is this month), but the “Greatest Love” , which can be interpreted philosophically in so many ways. So Janet Kuypers covered this very explicitly in her show about the love of a person, the love of nature, the love of astronomy, or even discovering the right book to bring the love of the right philosophy, bringing meaning to your life. Her “Exalted Love” show was also accompanied by music from Mozart (“the Dissonant”) rainforest sounds, and “Hotel Music” from the HA!Man of South Africa (Francois Le Roux, with “the story i am trying to tell” and “easy afternoon” both from his “Hotel Music”).

    Before the show started she also released copies of a chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed), and all of the pieces from this reading were also released electronically in a “Exalted Love” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.

    Below are video links and poetry writing links and images to the live performance of “Exalted Love” at “Greatest Love” in Austin.
