Dear Tereza and Tenzintenzin,

Thank you for your kind words responding to my poem, "The Message." I would also like to congratulate you, Tereza for participating in an A.P. literature class.

I put your comments to the side because I didn't want to interfere with your analysis for the class. (I'm sure you did a great job!) However, if you're interested, "The Message" was included in an anthology of poetry in the summer 2018 issue of Prisoner Express (Cornell Univ.) It includes my own analysis as well as my inspiration for the poem.

I was very fortunate to meet a "song writer," who had actually taught song writing for the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. I believe she is still offering a free songwriting course "online" during the pandemic. Her name is Justine Shandler and you can find her on Spotify and, I believe, Facebook.

Good luck with your writing, and I'll see you at the Grammy's. Keep loving Life, laughing often, and sharing the joy of writing.

P.S. Tell Justina, I recommended you!

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post.

That sounded like a really cool recommendation. I too consider myself a " poetry writer," though I just do it now as a hobby, and whenever ideas pop into my head(hehe), but "The Message" was definitely a cool poem to read.

Stay safe and healthy, my poetry guy.
