"In many Chinese sayings, 'ten thousand' is used in a poetic sense to convey something infinite, vast, and unfathomable," the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art reports. As a dedicated hyperbolist, I appreciate the phrase. Current Seattle civic poet Shin Yu Pai does too—she named her NPR podcast Ten Thousand Things. She explores a variety of cultural artifacts on the show, spotlighting Asian American stories of trauma and personal values. Pai will share some of these stories at this talk, which will come "enriched by audio clips" and touch on "the complexity of Asian American identities and what the Asian American experience was like during the pandemic."
