Nice interview, Tess. I've been an admirer of your poetry for a long time, now. Nuff said.
Congratulations, Tess, and well deserved!
I loved the interview, Tess -- and I'm so grateful that I've been reading your beautiful poetry nearly as long as you've been writing it! I find it amazing and hopeful and everything else that you began writing it down so "late" in life. I like, too, that you list Eugenio Montale as one of your favorites. He is one of mine, too -- particularly his poem "i limoni."
Congratulations! I really enjoyed the interview too.
I went and now I'm back...Congratulations! Your writing deserves to be published. I also enjoyed the interview.
Well done Tess. Recognition is so good for the soul.
Thank you so much, dear friends. Your kind encouragement made my poetry come easy. You are the best.
Nice interview, but too short !
Tess! We are so so so proud of you. Proud to know you. Proud to be part of Magpie Tales.
Very chuffed indeed! Good on you!Now stop all this poetry stuff for just a second and come over to my blog.... I've got a PARTY BUNKER going, and everyone's voting for what kind of bunker we'll build and volunteering to bring snacks and assorted bevvies. Why? Well, to avoid hearing or seeing any spoilers for the new season of BBC's SHERLOCK, of course! Do come on over and put in your vote, and say what delectable goodies you'll bring (perhaps some rhubarb biscuits?). It's sort of a very low-key version of the Willow Manor Ball. It promises private en-suite bedrooms, excellent vittles, and a special theater room showing "Withnail & I", the Sherlock episodes to date, and Downton Abbey, among other essentials! COME ONE COME ALL!!!
Congrats! Well deserved, Ms Tess!
