Interesting effect to take Elizabeth Gilbert’s piece and make it into a poem. I really like the way this came out.
Thank you. I do, too! It’s been beating a rhythm in me for several days now.
Your poetry stirs deep emotions, and makes people think about the things they do not want to do.
Thank you! And things they want to quit doing, or start doing.
Wow – this is extraordinary. I’ve been haunted by that piece, also. It just won’t let me alone. Thank you for the gift.
Thank you. Thank Liz Gilbert!
Oh, Ros. I simply love this. Not This touched me, too. I have walked away from Not This before. Finally…there is THIS. YES, THIS.
Thank you. Working on that.
As always, I am drawn to what you write. Very nice.
