I haven’t met Chamot (full name Liman rasan Sancho Chamot Alves Nahac). However, I have met his family and heard a lot about him. Today he has contributed twelve poems all written in 2007 and 2008. The vast majority of them in September -October 2007. I’m waiting for him to write a little about himself and tell us what inspired such a fast outpouring of poetry in that short time.
I know Chamot lived in Camenasa near Suai and that is where his mother and many other family members live, still. His mother is a wonderful weaver as are his sister and other women in the family.
I have allocated a separate post to each poem so friends can translate them or comment on them.
