A description of what started this particular blog can be found in its first entry --Feb. 9, 2009. It's about healing.
I willingly confess that I am in awe and wonder at the moment of this poem. I eventually read a private message you sent to me, which--contradicting netiquette--I will quote partly: "...I think I just wrote, with one possible exception 40 years ago, the best poem of my life so far. In it, I felt and feel the presence of my own grampa --avo in Portuguese, ong noi in Vietnamese-- and where he's been in my memory and highly personal mythology over the years....Does it, or any of what I feel, strike a chord? You ever feel like the old ones have got your back? Just curious...." I hope I answered that!
How extremely and grandly human to have had those who watch your back.
Gentlemen, thank you. As I write, new scientific data surfaces. Spectral analysis reveals the tails of bright comets --human and otherwise-- are composed of Geezerite and Mexican beer. Avuncular ions and gramplasmic charges follow new wonders thru the universe. It seems we're all included.
Please, say hello! I welcome your comments, thoughts, even criticisms!
