A special thanks to Bent Sørensen for presenting the title poem from my book, Another Song I Know, on his fine blog, Lumpy Pudding. When you visit, not only will you find the poem, but Bent’s new Danish translation, thus marking the first time work of mine has been translated into that language. What a great surprise!
I’ve been following Lumpy Pudding for over a year now. I also recommend Bent’s other blog, Ordinary Finds, where he treats visitors to photos and thumbnail sketches of notable people from the arts world and other walks of life. Links to both can also be found in the “Reading Room.”
My thanks, also, to Erin, author of the tiny leaf, for her amazing response to my recent Notebook entry, “My Father Walking, and Twenty-four Other Things.” I was about to respond when she did so for me in her post’s comment section:
and so after a ride on a country road and talking this out further, I slap myself in the head, for when I read William I made a very real and deep reaction and assumption that what he might hold back is horrible, for that is all that I choose to hold back. perhaps the stories he holds in bay are intimate or of a personal nature in some way that is so private....
Yes, that’s it exactly.
Note: I’ve received several comments on yesterday’s post and other recent entries that have yet to appear in the comment section. I assume Blogger will get it straightened out eventually. I will certainly respond when they do.
