      My dad wrote some awesome poetry. Unfortunately it's all in Latvian. Sure wish I knew how to translate poetry without losing anything in the translation.

      BlossomSB, I suppose our hearts do reflect what we put into them. And even better, what others put into them. You just put blessings into mine with your kind words let us see today if I can pass them on.

      Some interesting quotes here, enjoyed reading them. Some of them reminded me of Proverbs in the Bible. Very wise.

      Entertaining and wise! My favorites were: "When I write in first person I tend to lie, when I write fiction I tend to tell the truth" and "Poetry is a reality we have not yet seen, but the poet has". :-)
