Many congratulations to Carmen Martínez, rhapsode and poet, for such a delightful book that was just released, for offering me the chance to discover the world of poetry, and for being a Greeter.
Motivated by Carmen’s invitation, I attended her book presentation: “That immense love… that hurts so much”, held in Bilbao. I’ve never been interested in poetry, but I was curious and Carmen deserved to be with friends on this important day for her.
Carmen presented her last collection of poems, which is the 11th book of her emotional baggage, as she likes to say. The presentation was lovely. Family and friends joined her in this sensational evening. I was deeply touched to hear Carmen and her rhapsode friends read the poems.
I can only say I was deeply moved, my sentiments flowed, and she won my admiration. The presentation was simply spectacular. At least, it is how I felt.
Now that a great curiosity for the poetry has aroused in me, I am sure that I will repeat.
If you are interested in her poetry and wish to buy the book and CD to listen to Carmen read her poetry, be sure to visit her website: http://www.lavidadecarmen.com/
