Listen to the Warmth


Freezing Friends
Welcome to

click on photos to thaw out
Thinking of a title for this post,
I came up with
"Listen to the Warm."

Ring any bells?

"To change something, build a new model
that makes the existing model obsolete."
Buckminster Fuller

"A fine quotation
is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit,
and a pebble
in the hand of a fool."
Joseph Roux


Remember Rod McKuen
("Listen to the Warm")
that rarest of all things:
a popular, mainstream poet?

Before him
it was Robert Frost,
rewarding the average reader
but not disappointing the scholar either.

Who do we have that is like that today?
Kanye West?
(Just kidding!)

Maya Angelou
is considered political.
There is very little that we ALL subscribe to.

The Simpsons,

Celebrating their 25th year, is the longest-running show on TV.
The characters are beloved (and bemoaned) all over the world.

Don't have a COW,

Perhaps there are no longer "mainstream" anything?
My favorite poets of today are much closer than some pedestal
on the top of a mountain somewhere.
In fact they are bloggers like you & me!
