|Inept? You? Never. So beautifully penned, power in poignant lines of self criticism. We are our own harshest critics -- believe me, I know. Do I ever. Well done, Jon.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|Art is expressed by the writer or painter when capturing in whatever form the visions and colors of their souls, and putting it out there.
As always Jon Michael, brilliant work

|Ah, the sticks and stones of art are many. So many have had to die to become known.
Thank you for reminding me of the whims of art and what it takes to survive.

|All the reasons why art is so diverse. Each sees what they want to see whether conjured or reality. Deep writing with a fantastic delivery...

|This is pemmican poetry, Jon, a rich condensed dish...there is just so much here, so much, and the control of expression is impressive...and the idea of defence admirable, a warrior prepared to counter-thrust.
Very fine indeed.
