May you heal all you need to feel
I really enjoy the mish-mash of topics and questions you give us. That Margaret Atwood poem is beautiful. The first section about your philosophy professor reminded me of this line from Mary Oliver: "Now that I'm free to be myself, who am I?"
Thank you Rob. All fascinating, and so many synchronicities. And I’m not being hyperbolic. First, I love Tony Hoagland’s poetry very very much. I was so glad to see a posthumous collection recently published. And now he lives everywhere, including in by heart. Second, I share VVG’s birthday, and I’m always keen to understand our astrological companionship. Although I feel quite “sane” right now, aka balanced and content, the phrase “lost your mind” is integral, I mean just essential to my art at the moment. Quite literally, as in, the phrase upon which my book in process turns. So there’s that. A book to be released in the next few months. Dang. Something to this astrology stuff. So thanks again, many times, for your positive free will forecast.
"Poetry is violence"; "There is only poetry". God Bless Nobby.
