This is part of a series highlighting some of the poets anthologized in Poetry of Presence. We thank the poets for providing the material. Today we shine the spotlight on Larry Smith.
Short bio: I’m a poet, novelist, biographer, and editor of Bottom Dog Press. A retired professor of Bowling Green State University, I’m a co-founder with my wife Ann of the Converging Paths Meditation Center in Sandusky, Ohio. We celebrated our 10th anniversary this past June. I’ve practiced meditation and mindfulness for 30 years now and share it online and in my many books of poetry and prose, including Each Moment All: Meditations as Poems. I am also a practicing Christian and see no conflict between these spiritual paths unless you get bogged down in “the church.”
