Lovely. Thanks for introducing us to these fine poets. Are you back in the US?


Hi Stacey - yes, back in the States now. Had no time in Romania to post as much as I wanted to. I was so exhausted from so little sleep (and that brutal schedule) that I had a full-on, day-long seizure/panic attack that started on the bus back to Bucharest (from the beach) and finally ended around 8 that evening. Now that I'm back I'm processing it all ... just as guest blogging ends!

Thanks so much for this opportunity! I'll be back in Romania in the spring, for my Fulbright teaching. Hopefully it'll be less stressful, more restful.

The future is bright and "Orange".
Thank you for these wonderful times in Romania together with David, all the other poets and writers. Our collaborate poem and more pictures soon on facebook... :-)

hello. i also want to share a poem: I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking.

Sharon, you are great! And put together this in such a short time! Kindly please stay in touch, we want to have you both for dinner in our place!

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.
