Also, I too must thank you for all your wonderful posts.
Thank you. William Segal was an extraordinary man. I never met him personally, he passed away on May 16th, 2000, but I know many people who were touched by his presence. There are two books by him. The first is a book of poetry by him entitled, “Openings,” that is absolutely incredible and the second is a memoir filled with his own writings as well as interviews, photographs and so on. It’s called, “A Voice at the Borders of Silence.”
There is also a remarkable film about him by the director Ken Burns called, “Seeing, Searching, and Being.”
I don’t know if you’ve seen my blog Intense City, but you can find many of his poems, writings and a few photographs there.
