  2. Back in college some 50 years ago had to do an essay on the Lake Poets. I wrote on Percy, Bysshe and Shelly if as though they were three different people. The professor was unrelentless in his ridicule I don’t remember but I got a D or F in the course. He was completely dismissive of me and any work assignments I turned in.

    “I fall upon the thorns of life I bleed” used to be my go to line to express contempt for self-dramatization. So, you’ve pulled off something I thought was impossible: redeeming Shelley.

    I long to run to the woods myself, or at least find some nature trail! For now I’ll just imagine, with the pigeons on my fire escape.

    Being in nature is always restorative for me. And I love Mutts 😀
