Iranian Master Weaver

I met Ramazan Rezai when I traveled to Yazd, Iran. He is warping a 400 year-old loom with 8,000 silk threads! A man of patience and exquisite skill, you may read a story about him in my anthology Love and Pomegranates: Artists and Wayfarers on Iran, or, look for it at:, where I will be serializing some of the poems, essays, and interviews by over 65 contributors who have found friendships, mentors and muses in Iran.
