All the mights of life, Terence. I don't know Tim's work at all, so this was a good introduction.

sweet but also sad evocation of tim's unique presence and energy...gratefully he lives on in his poetry (and diary, also edited by david trinidad) and in our hearts..

Thanks, Tom.
His loss was deeply felt by his numerous friends.
This is more recent:

I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.
We are well here.

grá mór

Thanks, Terry:
Tim's work rocked my world from the 70s forward--I remember writing an appreciation of Tim's poetry (specifically the books "A Fast Life" and "Entre Nous") in the Washington Review back in late 1983. I was obviously starstruck, and I suppose still am.

Thanks, David. I'd love to read your piece.

Lovely, Terence. Thank you.

Thanks, Phyllis. 

Beatiful. I have many fond memories of Tim. Thank you Terence !!!

Tim Dlugos’ poems always seem fresh and new. Great to read this remembrance.

Thanks for the comment, Chris. Tim's poems really do remain alive on the page.

Thanks, Jack. This is actually an old post that BAP put back up to mark the anniversary of Tim's death. But it's all still true!

left the house
