We Sit is a collaborative book of art by painter Marley Kaul and poet Geri Wilimek. Inviting readers to contemplate mortality, impermanence and rich morsels of experience, the stunning paintings and Zen inspired poetry ignite thought and conjure memories.  In this segment of Area Voices, these longtime confidants discuss their decades long friendship, the prevelance of meditation in their lives, their creative processes and how this collaboration of painting of poetry came to be.
