Bard at large / Rae Lake Costos.

Rae Lake Costos is the "Bard at Large" of KPFT, Houston. She defines a bard as a person who travels about carrying the news of heroes from place to place. In our age, the heroes are those who help us define what spiritual freedom is. While visiting from Houston, Ms. Costos recorded these thoughts about the rebirth of the human soul. Through her own poetry and that of Edna St. Vincent Millay, beautifully read, Ms. Costos speaks of our need to give birth to our inner self, the intuitive self beyond reason, emotion or the senses. Produced by Lois Hansen.
