Wow, the poetry is just amazing. Somehow I had only remembered how little I like reading poetry and had forgotten how much I like listening to it.

Have you ever thought of maybe recording some poetry for LibriVox? You are very good at it.

Feeling somewhat overwhelmed after that...reminds me of that old song by the Band..
Slow down Willie Boy
You're heart's going to give right out on you
Its true
We've used up all of out time
And the days that are left
Aren't worth a dime

Agree with Mollie, poetry is much nicer to listen to, it's meant to be heard...I had forgotten that too.

I *really* enjoyed your reading, SD. I'm something of a packrat myself, and it's always interesting going back and looking over things you've written. I'm glad you shared it.

I'm new to listening to podcasts and stumbled upon yours, much to my delight. I live in Australia but grew up in Toronto in the 70's so your reminiscing has been wonderful. Great poetry too, especially the one about unweaving the strands of the moment. I'm teaching primary school and we're studying poetry but I don't think I'll try to foist that on them just yet.

I also listened to Reductionism and would have liked to have heard more on Reductionism. Your friend cousin what-si asked who else has read book like the blind watchmaker by Richard Dawkins and I can recommend The Ancestor's Tale by the same author. It's really good.

As is your podcast. I look forward to your next episode.
