You write them, I’ll read them!
Joseph S from the Republic of Crimea wants to know:
1. What is the meaning of life?
2. Please tell me about your philosophy in regards to writing poetry.
Thank you for your letter, Joseph S!
As for the meaning of life, “Death Before Disco” was a popular slogan in the late 1970s and I think it should merit consideration today. Seriously, Henry Miller said that love is the one thing we don’t give (or receive) enough. I agree that life is love. The quality of life is measured by how much love we give, and how much love we receive.
Writing poetry is the essence of beautiful failure. At some point in writing (as in life) we will fail. The key is to fail beautifully while striving gallantly. Poetry comes to life when we have the courage to pick-up the pen after a beautiful failure.
Peace and love always!
