Comments from the author about writing:  One of my fondest desires is to bring poetry back to its rightful home, that is into people’s hearts, and truly popularize poetry, using as many imaginative ways as possible. Freddy Niagara Fonseca, Renaissance man, poet, dramatic reader, impresario, and creator of This Enduring Gift has immersed himself in the arts all his life and has read tens of thousands of poems in five languages. In 2004 he founded the Candlelight Reading Series, and in 2007, the Chamber Music Society Fairfield.

With the collaboration of expressive readers, musicians, dancers, and actors, he has presented over 50 poetry readings on universal themes culled from poetry of all styles, eras, and cultures. He regularly invites noteworthy musicians — statewide, nationwide, and internationally — to perform chamber music in Fairfield, Iowa.

Freddy Niagara Fonseca believes that poetry and the whole world will drastically change once a new, spiritual paradigm of consciousness and language emerges. Poetry will then be experienced, written, and appreciated in universal terms, and a sublime awareness of the Earth will manifest.

He has lived in Fairfield for over 20 years and calls it home.
