Michael Dylan Welch selected the Bolero of Ravel as the theme song of the Seabeck Haiku Getaway 2017.

On the opening night of the conference, we were shown the 8 minute final scene from the movie Les Uns et Les Autres by Claude Lelouch in which a character dances to the Bolero and is joined by a choir.

The music got stuck in our head for the rest of the conference.

A good place for your bad haiku

The Old Man Gloom is Zozobra, a giant puppet that people stuff with negativity – such as divorce papers. The puppet is burned during the the Santa Fe Fiesta that takes place on Labour day weekend. Wouldn’t it be great if you could stuff it with bad haiku?
