Can’t… read… one… more… book… of… poems…

It doesn’t help that I’m trying to get ready for a two-week trip to the U.K., leaving Sunday. It’s getting very hard to concentrate. Which is a pity, because I still have four lovely books to blog, two of which just arrived in today’s mail. Maybe when I get back.

  1. Take a walk on your mountain and try again… Ditto on the appreciation for your great work.


  2. Have a wonderful trip. I hoped to send you a traveling gift, but I’m late as usual. Perhaps a welcome back, to greet you with your mountain, books, porch … travel well.


  3. Bon voyage, Dave, I’m sure you’ll come back home refreshed and even more creative. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
