Truly, you are spoiling me, Carl! I am beyond flattered to have another of my poems featured on your website! As you know, I am off to climb Manaslu in a couple of days, and this is a beautiful send-off! Many thanks to you and your readers for your interest in my writing.

You have become my favorite poet and wish to have you here many, many Wednesdays. Oh, and your climbing. I have trouble with three flights of stairs.

Thank you! Wow!
Speaking of climbing stairs… I can’t do that for several days after a mountain climb – every step up is pure, exquisite torture …

everything or nothing; beginnings, endings, and change – love how you wove this!

Thank you for reading! Very glad the poem ‘spoke’ to you !

Carl, you pick the best of the best! Mila is top of the best of the best!

And once again, wow! Really, your words are too kind, Carl!

A powerful message. I love the image of yourself as an old black and white film that you’d either like to rewind … or let run out. That’s how I feel many a day about the past. Have a safe journey on your mountain climbing.

Thanks, Judy! I think acceptance is, perhaps, the healthiest approach to the past. After all, regrets about the past only make the present seem darker than it might have appeared otherwise.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: your poems are beautiful!
August 29th, 2012 at 22:10
Thank you, Val! It is a pleasure to share them with you, and hear that you like them !

Your words belie your years–beautifully done. Thanks, Carl, for introducing me to Mila’s work.

This is a beautiful poem. “And now my name is change.” I really love that phrase and how you built to it. Really nice! Debra

Thanks for your comment, Derba! I think Change would be a good name for me, but Mila works, too !
