Thanks for this, Denise.... sounds like a beaut. Also I couldn't agree more with your post after Nin's. You and she make me feel flush of a December morning with gratitude for poets and mischief and teachers.

These are terrific!!

Such a great way to commemorate the dead. In the Red Bull age of constant distractions and self-imposed hyperventilation, we tend to move on very quickly without reflecting on and celebrating those who have passed. I wear a ring with a Tiger's Eye gem that my grandfather found on the bottom of a railroad when he was unloading steel bars from it. He gave it to my father who used it as a wedding ring, and when I wear it, I not only think of them but of a whole working-class culture I grew up in.
