I am a teacher now, but have done many professional jobs. I write often for myself. What I post here is a part of those writings. I don't like to criticize, but I also feel that we all need it. Sometimes our favorite stuff will get nothing but stones from others. Sometimes those stones make positive dents, sometimes you should just throw them away for what they are: stones. It doesn't matter that much. Self expression is the highest calling - even if it is only understood by yourself. We are all a universe and priceless. But sometimes we can be more clear to others; and help them in the process. I wish you all the best. Personally, I like to have a good sense of humor about everything - though it is not always possible. (For my job I have to practice "mean" looks; luckily I don't actually have to feel it . . .)

I didn't even see this comment until just now! I'll have to get someone to translate it because I know hardly and Russian yet . . .



Спасибо! Мне очень приятно это слышать! и я приятно удивлен, что Вы говорите на русском.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
