Wow! There is a poetic side to you as well. Nicely put.
February 12th, 2013 at 05:25
Have a lot of poems to refine. Usually 12 lines or less and usually each line same syllabic count.

The old man and the sea…;o)
February 12th, 2013 at 08:10
Me or Spencer Tracy ?
February 12th, 2013 at 10:46
Both ! But mostly Ernest Hemingway. You could be a look-alike…;o)

“Wear their faces, tied shoe laces” … great prose, Carl. I love it when someone is proud of who they are and don’t have a need to look younger.
Blessings to you and dad ~ Maxi

Where’s my wallet ? Car keys ? Today is it cardiologist or ophthalmologist appt ? Does social security come on the 3rd or the third Wednesday ? God, my knee hurts. Do I take the green pill or the pink one in the morning? Where did I put my glaucoma drops ? God my knee hurts.

Has anyone told you that you look like Papa Hemingway with your beard?
February 12th, 2013 at 08:18
I need to goe to the Hemingway look-a-like festival in Key West.
February 12th, 2013 at 07:23
Those first two lines are ever powerful!
February 12th, 2013 at 08:19
Some times the perfect words just come to ya.
February 12th, 2013 at 07:37
The lines on our faces show character, and yours is beautiful, Carl.
You are too kind.
February 12th, 2013 at 07:49
Strong resemblance to Hemingway.
He plays for the Giants, right ?
February 12th, 2013 at 08:26
Wow. Beautiful! I love this poem and the illustration.
I hope all has been well with you.
February 12th, 2013 at 08:28
Doin’ fair to midland.

Have you stopped your blog ? I could not reach it for visit.
February 12th, 2013 at 12:55
No, I haven’t stopped it but I am on a hiatus while I finish this last year of school. My fieldwork starts in April and getting ready for that takes a lot of time. I’m surprised you can’t reach it. I’ll check it out to see what is going on. But I won’t be blogging regularly for the forseeable future. Thanks for checking.

The best! Wonderful. I also love how you use the same photo of your head for everything you do. It cracks me up!
February 12th, 2013 at 09:47
Only photo I have so I guess it has become my trademark/logo.
February 12th, 2013 at 08:52
Love it, Carl. This brings to mind my favorite Brandi Carlile song… The Story. “All of these lines across my face, tell you the story of who I am…”
February 12th, 2013 at 09:51
As a Joni Mitchell, Carol King, Judy Collins, Melanie, and Linda Ronstadt fan, naturally I enjoyed. I will look her up for more. Thanks for adding to the post. Such is always welcome.

there is something about wrinkles that make a person more attractive. You are wearing it like hmmm shall we say, Richard Gere? or my fav Charles Bronson.
February 12th, 2013 at 09:52
Perhaps Sean Connery, eh ? And I have all my hair. I am doing better than King Tut, however.
February 12th, 2013 at 09:56
Bond, Mr. James Bond. Sean Connery, it is!

Who’s that handsome devil in the photo?

For my life’s experiences it is the metaphoric EVERYMAN.
February 12th, 2013 at 11:11
We do wear our faces, don’t we, and oft wear them right out. Yours is attended well by time. I realise this age how aging is unavoidable. When I first saw a grey hair I held it out to Daniel in shock comment. He was not surprised. Apparently he’d noticed before, ho hum. Yes, but it’s ME going grey slowly!!!!! Hope the colour suits…
February 14th, 2013 at 10:19
I skipped gray and silver and moved directly to white hair.
February 12th, 2013 at 21:39
Love this one!
Love, Love, Love!!!
February 12th, 2013 at 23:12
This is wonderful comment.
February 13th, 2013 at 01:07
Carl, sit up straight. You look like you’re posing for the cover of a new edition of “The Old Man and the Sea,” and I know for a fact you’re a Baby Boomer so you’re not old at all. Your life is just beginning!
February 13th, 2013 at 07:10
Yes just 63 and it is more a poem of reflection than lament. But I can’t believe how “oldified” have become most of my peers.
February 13th, 2013 at 18:37
Nice. Have you tried any haikus, Carl? I would think you’d be very good at them.
February 13th, 2013 at 18:54
Oh , yes I write them. This is a sample of one of my best:

You look like you’re waiting for your gal to do some canoodling
February 14th, 2013 at 06:29
…with a capital C for sure.
February 14th, 2013 at 09:49
Oh my gosh. Just read your haiku above and I’m still laughing!
Love your poem up top, too! I like the Sergeant Major line–we’re all working our way to General! I didn’t know you were a poet, Carl. I look forward to more.
February 14th, 2013 at 10:31
There is often more and better humor in the comments than the post. Have lots of poetry and more to rework. I usually structure to have same syllabic count per line but not all the time. Will post poem tomorrow. .
February 15th, 2013 at 05:10
Wow… Nice Job
