  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are a man of many talents.

    I have a 17 year old son too! He’s cool, but ornery at times.

    I hope you continue to publish your work, both on your blog and elsewhere. To poem is to live.

  2. Thanks for blogging. And thanks for visiting mine and leaving a comment. We have one 17 and one 18, the latter is at UIUC in one of their Engineering programs. Ian is really a great kid. So is Colin.
    I’ve already gotten too much into the habit of blogging to stop now. Most of my poetry goes to my other blog these days: http://fringemonkey.wordpress.com

  3. Hi,

    I have come across you via Ina Schroders-Zeeders and particularly her latest post, “Souvenir”.

    I am really interested in what you will do with the stolen bits! I look forward to the post.


    • Thanks, Scott. Especially for the ‘broadness’ compliment. I sometimes fear I’m too limited in range or scope. Intellectually, I understand that it’s a silly fear, but there it is. Great to know I’m someone’s top ten list for something good. Enjoy.

  4. Dear David, I was sorry to miss you on Friday night. You left before I got to Gallery ll. Thank you for your poem “Painting the Muse”. I hope you like my interpretation. I look forward to meeting you on Nov. 17th. My husband bought your framed poem. It is beautiful. Thank you for your poetry. I look forward also to reading more of your work. Sheri Ramsey

    • Sheri,
      I’m so looking forward to meeting you as well. I read that poem some time after I submitted it and realized it must be quite a challenge with its contradictions, but I think your interpretation is wonderful! I absolutely adore it. Best in show by my vote. I have to admit, though, that it took me a couple times of studying the picture to see what’s there. I think because I was too close to see the eyes I was looking for. But, yes, I adore it. I think a print with the poem embeded might sell in the right crowd. Thank you for purchasing the framed copy of the poem.

      • David,
        I’m very happy you like the painting. It was so fun to paint, using your poem as inspiration. I used one of my photos of a Glenarm sky scene. My daughter posed for the painting too. I love painting her. Another face shares one of “her” eyes and is looking from behind her face. I assumed it was “your” face? I’m glad you saw the eyes. I’ll look into printing the painting with your poem. That’s a great idea which I’ll use for my next show this Jan. with your permission? We’ll talk on the 17th.

  5. David, I would love to reblog one of your pieces… please let me know if that would be alright. Grazie for sharing. Your work is beautiful. Bells xx
