Forrest Curo is a poet and member of San Diego (Calif.) Meeting. He ran the Aardvark Bookstore here from 1985–1998 and founded Street Light (modeled on American Friends Service Committee’s Street Spirit) in 1996. He put in a year at Pendle Hill Conference Center in 2002 in hopes of finding a spiritual handle on the intractable politics of poverty and is now retired.
