« XXV. The 30 Films of Akira Kurosawa: Akahige (Red Beard) [1965] (by Lewis Saul)] | Main | In the Begin, the Boston Globe, and a Happiness Tank [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] »

February 03, 2010


hey man,
totally catch the fire of bereavment. Good part though, you will recreate anew. I trust that inner knowing that resplendid aspect of you that must put forth the light. You must do this and I feel you will triumph more than you know. Think of this as the likeness of the sand mandala of the Buddhist monk.
The beauty was given unto the soul of the Earth and as these prose traverse the grid they will happen upon the minds of humans everywhere. The energy of creation is a gorgeous bird who cleaves the air with wings of rememberance and you my friend will remember who you are again

I'm sorry...did you just compare the loss of your stupid little poems to the death of a child?

Good luck.

"Stan Hecht" is too much of a pansy to show his real identity. Hey Michael Dickman, how's it going? Still wearing bangs?

This post is light-hearted. He references Emerson here to talk about loss. Saying that you actually think that Schiavo is comparing the loss of his hard drive to the loss of a child is intentionally glib.

Dickman -- if you and your brother aren't too busy destroying contemporary American poetry, the least you could do is leave your real name on your comments.
