    linda i do not know a lot about the man, all i know is that he is a artist
    if i had a choice between the two i would do the same thing, paint you dont
    have to talk to a painting it would suit me because i enjoy the solitude of my own company, the human race only disappoints me
    man is the weakest animal he is very flawed, he usually is full of himself
    though i do miss those people i grew to respect and laugh with
    but i will continue with my work, i have much to do, much to write

    Hello, Allan
    I noticed you were speaking about Les Murray the other day. I found a poem of his called 'The Cows On Killing Day' fascinating - I have never come across a poem written in that way before. Have you read it? What do you think?

    It is nice to share pleasant and intelligent discourse here. I have really enjoyed what all of you have shared over the past couple of days and have learned of some poets that I have not had the pleasure of reading before. This site has helped me to grow not only in writing but in my general knowledge of the creative form. Thank you all and I hope we can do this for a long time yet. Sx

    Thanks, Allan - for pointing out my typing error - your comments about the rest of the post would have been more intereting though. xxx

    Michael, [as per your comment on prose writing] I have worked in the journalistic field for a time (until this month in fact - but got damn tired of the frantic and what seemed the voyeuristic aspects of documenting death - not designed for that) and so your comment about prose and using that journalistic style is noted. It hasn't helped me up to now, but then I wasn't using the 'media nodule' of my brain when in creative writing mode. I will try it out on my prose and see.. if I fall into a parsimonious hole I can't get out of you will give me a hand won't you.. wink, Sxx
