I Read Your Letters

You write them, I’ll read them.

Kimberley in Australia wants to know if I appeared in the “Everywhere signs” photograph posted on May 14, 2015.

Kim from AustraliaKimberley,

Thank you very much for writing!

I want the reader to experience only the best. For this installment of “Everywhere signs,” I planned to spare no expense and use a model who was young, handsome, and in perfect physical condition. Unfortunately, he was not available and you had to settle for me.

Peace and love always!

I Read Your Letters

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.

Letter to Erozeno: Joseph S

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!
