Let’s get to know poet cc lindh more:

Matthew Toffolo: What is the theme of your poem?

MT: How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

cc: I hope that he + she makes people happy and also makes people feel the vibration that is love. I also
hope that my poem pulls up the understanding that a marriage creates a unique partnership, a unique form and that this form is now born and real in this world!

MT: Do you have a favorite poem besides your own?

I love the poetry of Emily Dickinson. I especially like her poem: Hope is the Thing with Feathers.

MT: What movie have you seen the most in your life?

cc: Chasing Mavericks. It’s a film about the amazing and inspiring surfer Jay Moriarty and his quest to surf Mavericks in Santa Cruz.

MT: Do you have a favorite writer?

cc: Emily Dickinson is my favorite writer.

MT: What influenced you to write poetry?

cc: Previously, I spent time writing songs and I see poems as an extension of that, of songs, quiet songs. I have these feelings that just come up and need to be expressed. It makes me very happy if people enjoy my work. Thank you fans!

MT: What is your favorite song?

How can a person possibly say just one song?

I totally adore My Funny Valentine, Nature Boy, and Smile.
And, of course, I’ll Be Seeing You by Billie Holiday!
