I can hear Joe in his gravelly holy voice talking us through this.

How do I change my email address? Below does not do it. And I don't want comcast vs. verizon to keep me from Laura

I can hear Joe's gravelly holy intonation in this. God Love 'em

Whoa!! This is GREAT. You mind reader, Laura. I have been thinking much lately about what happens to the dead when those who remember them die, too. Today's blog has the old neurons firing anew, even before caffeine. (Don't worry, tomorrow I will fix Grace's e-mail for her.)

joe is just another irish-american jesus

"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead."

a special Post for St. Patrick's Day people and I want to emphasize this blog Excellent my friends have lots of views in the comments that I feel great, keep in that way.

What do I need to know about the St Patrick's Day Parade in Savannah? I love poetry. The blog postings of such contributors as Bill Hayward, Lera Auerbach, Patricia Carlin, Laura Orem, James Cumming, Mitch Sisskind, Stacey Harwood, Laura Orem, Jennifer Michael Hecht, Terence Winch, Ken Tucker, are great and i know I mentioned Laura Orem twice. I'm planning to go down to Savannah, GA this year for the St Patrick's Day celebration. Apparently the parade is on Friday. I'm wondering what poets to read there. Can you recommend a Johnny Mercer song for the occasion? Any other advice?

Mercer's "Too Marvelous for Words" is marvelously apt for any occasion.

okay i'm in the middle of a debate, and my friend says it is b/c st. patrick ewing brought Christianity to Ireland, but i say it started as a feast day, and then was popularized, by the legend of st. patrick ewing getting rid of the sneakers on Ireland. so which is right? or are we both right?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
