Very glad to have you on the blog, Michael. And special thanks for your championing of Emerson, whom I read for wisdom, consolation, inspiration. Not a year goes by that I do not reread "Self-Reliance," "Compensation," "Circles," "The Poet," "Heroism," "Love," "Friendship," "Politics," "Intellect," "Art," "Nature," "Experience," and the rest, each time with a renewed sense of wonder at the majesty of his thought and the aphoristic power of his sentences. His essays are poems, and of the highest order. -- DL

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.
