In this episode of The Poet’s Dreamingbody, I address a question about names and naming that have come in, in a few different ways, since the summer — not only about my own Wayfaring name given to me by my late teacher but also about the Wayfaring poets in general; namely, “Why do some poets have different names or more than one name?” Then, we explore the next poet in the Wayfaring Poet Profile Series, Wei Ying-wu (737-791).
