Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado
Through the concerted efforts of the literary community and the Trinidad State Junior College, most notably, educator John Casuqarelli Wang Ping chose to grace this community with both a book signing of her epic piece ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and do some readings from her book. On a side bar, her masterpiece earned acclaim as a feature film of historic significance in addressing the atrocious treatment of Chinese immigrants in the land of freedom, milk and honey, (USA).
Was the audience whisked to a place of joy or dark forebode in a repartee of stark reality? Well, I was pretty frigging happy since Wang Ping was on the other side of my camera lens and I was in Downtown Trinidad Colorado. No rush hour traffic on the Hollywood Freeway for me eh. It was a two day adventure with a world class poet and humanitarian, Wang Ping. With the splendor of the majestic Rocky Mountains as her backdrop it does not get any better than that.
If you are aware of Wang Ping you are also aware she is never idle and everything has purpose and direction. In coming to Trinidad she also made the community aware of her on going *’Kinship of Rivers’ project uniting communities in kinship and harmony along the Mississippi & Yangtze Rivers. From what I observed it’s an extension of an olive branch in uniting people, not governments or politics. Just unity among the children of planet earth
Throughout the pomp and circumstance of Wang Ping’s whirlwind visit to Trinidad,
Your Devil’s Advocate
