Goodbye for Now

 Hi Friends,

This is just a note to thank you for your friendship and for visiting me here for the past ten years. I am taking a break for now, and may or may not return. Either way, I will let you know.

So Much Love,

Amy

“The spirits of children are remote and wise...”
Frances Cornford

“It is really hard to be lonely very long in a world of words. Even if you don't have friends somewhere, you still have language, and it will find you and wrap its little syllables around you and suddenly there will be a story to live in.”
Naomi Shihab Nye, I'll Ask You Three Times, Are You OK?: Tales of Driving and Being Driven

William Faulkner
“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
William Faulkner

Vida Sreta Love, love, LOVE, Amy's poetry. Love her way of "dressing up" some ordinary things from nature around her and things from everyday life into such beautiful language figures so that almost every line creates a picture in readers' minds. Happy about the new books that are coming up next year. I would be delighted to have the new treasure, Amy's book POEMS ARE TEACHERS.
