Hello Herr Braun:We feel that we have already been navigating a maze in search of 'true enlightenment' but, yet, have barely scratched the surface of these two most remarkable collections which you have presented us with today.We note that Bukowski has been declared compulsory reading for everyone in the White House. How that enables them to get any other work done is quite beyond us, but if their decisions are made as a result of their reading, then the USA is, most likely, in better hands than we might have thought.We shall add both of these sites to our 'favourites' in order that we may return from time to time in search of the Holy Grail that is undoubtedly there....somewhere.
Yes, but it's not compulsory for you to be interested in the things I am posting on my BLOG, you know? ;)
I picked up a copy of his "what matters most is how well you walk through the fire" today because the title struck me. Paging through it and reading the poems at random, it's fascinating stuff.
