So many things shone – in feeling, in phrasing, in WISDOM…how lucky you were to have had such a wonderful marriage…liked your reference to aging. Those of us no longer young have got to insist on being heard….the University Bookstore is lucky indeed to have such a fine book to launch its new printing press.
The book is beautiful in design, appearance and most of all in content. You’ve entered a whole new level of relationship with language and it shows beautifully
…a wonderful read!!! Love, loss, motherhood, aging – you covered it all.
Sent your book to my sister in England who phoned to say how much she enjoyed it and likes your sense of humor. She never phones me so this was really something
…been reading your poems aloud…breathtaking!
After reading your book I decided to choose my favorite three poems, but stopped counting at ten. So many pieces hit home.
I consider most poetry pretentious and inaccessible. You prove me wrong. Any baby boomer will relate to your poems. Twice in a Blue Moon is a life lived in poetry.
About your book…something I’ll pick up frequently…a mood to it that’s very strong…brilliantly done…all the emotion in a few words
So many images and heart-felt emotions using few words is pure genius. My husband, who doesn’t read poetry – ever - picked it up. Later, looking dazed, couldn’t believe he could truly enjoy poetry. He was actually stunned. Used all the adjectives I had in my mind.
Your poetry is magic…touching…descriptive
…what a great creation! What a pleasure to have it in one’s hands, have the words settle on one’s heart. Thank you for putting it all together.
I cried, I laughed out loud…so much tenderness
Read your little gem of a book last night after hearing you. You read exquisitely.
Read much of your book in the car to husband Ed. We were both entranced.
Your words tell stories, stir emotions, make human connections.
