All that Hums: Poetry and Lyrics of Ray Underwood
The life of an artist continues each time we experience his art. Announcing publication of ALL THAT HUMS. Volume 1 of the Poetry of Ray Underwood. With photography & art by Rilla B. Underwood. "Ray Underwood was..." would be a truly misleading introduction to the work of a young man who lived completely in the moment, as Ray did. An almost magical vitality, originality & excitement about life, were gifts he delighted in sharing with all who knew him. Ray simply never was, "was". His abundant talents & accomplishments encompassed not only poetry, but nearly every area of the arts. While he was still in high school, his work was read by acclaimed poet Anne Sexton, who commented, "This is not merely the work of one who writes poems. Rather it is that of a poet." His poetry is prodigious, profound, acutely observed, deeply felt. Often funny. Sometimes silly. And always remarkable. Just like Ray. Fortunately for us all, Ray's mother, photographer & western artist, Rilla B. Underwood, has become the curator of Ray's legacy. ALL THAT HUMS, the first published collection of poems by Ray Underwood, is the result of her unstinting commitment to bring this work to the public. Her beautiful photographic illustrations & paintings, serve as a unifying & expressive commentary on the life & art of her talented & beloved son. A percentage of the proceeds of sales will be donated to AIDS projects. For more information, please call or write: SomeWings, P.O. Box 67, Carpinteria, CA 93014, 805-684- 6161.
