Some critic tried to put me down —
“Your poems lask the Basic Truth of Tao”
And I recall the old-timers
Who were poor and didn’t care
I have to laugh at him,
He misses the point entirely,
Men like that
Ought to stick to making money.

— Gary Snyder

  3. Hmm. Many years ago, before I actually began my blog, I wished to determine how folks would respond to my butterfly images. We invited 3 couples to our home, all well educated and all city people. Frieda A”H put out coffee and cake ( OMG!) and I treated our friends to some 30 of so of my images. As one of them was getting ready to leave later, he said in normal voice. “If I had known that people wanted to be butterflies, I’d of gotten out my camera and taken pictures of the moths in our closet.” So shared the lawyer. To-date I’ve not forgotten that. Kenne, by now you know that your work if extraordinary and the Love in it shows . . . .
