It is my great honor to thank Maria Lupinacci and the editors of BLUEPRINT REVIEW for including my poems, "Past Present and Future Are One" and “The Man That Poetry Made” in the debut issue of their elegant, dynamic, provocative, and all-around outstanding debut online magazine. I invite readers to please enjoy the poems and all of the exceptional art, poetry, and prose in the publication by clicking on:

Always a fan, but The Man That Poetry Made must surely be my favorite now... until I read your next poem. Bravo.

After reading Nordette's review its too difficult to comment but just keep on laughing! LOL!!! One thing I agree, once you go Aberjhani, you never go back, so I don't blame Nordette for being an AA - LOL! Congratulations Aberjhani- and you do deserve it all! Excellent work! Wonderful!

God bless,

Maria did an excellent job of compiling a very diverse group of poets and building a great site ... your poems are great!

I stand in awe (especially after picking myself up off of the floor upon reading Sis. Nordette's previous post!). Told her to stop drinkin' that "Tussin" long ago! (LOL)

Seriously Bro. A, I was taken aback by both of your postings, especially swept away by "The Man That Poetry Made." Just one question: When were you and robert Jude forese separated at birth?

write on write on!

I am presently away at the Aberjhanis Anonymous Treatment Clinic in Nova Scotia. I was able to sneak past Nurse Ratchett and secure use of a computer with Internet connection in Dr. Leonard's office for a few minutes so I could peek at some of your work. They won't let us have your books or look at your websites, part of the treatment, you know.

You wouldn't believe all the people here being treated for Aberjhani addiction. Many of the patients are celebrities in their own right. I helped a goregous young woman this morning who was shaking from the DTs. Had to dab a little drool off the corner of her full lips. She looked very much like that Rosario woman from the movie RENT, but I don't think it was she. A little too short. She kept babbling something about A JADE HIEROGLYPHIC on her chest.

I did get to read your entries into THE BLUEPRINT. I saw Eileen's and Jude's pieces too. You all did a bang-up job. Maria is to be applauded and Patricia Gomes as well. I would really like to laud you more, sir, but they've implanted me with an electronic shock device that will zap me if I attach too many superlatives to your name. The number of superlatives changes each day; so, I'm never sure when I will be zapped. It's most painful, designed to keep me from gushing over you as often as I do, but I'm not half as bad as some of the others. You should hear them, some of them are downright...Oh-oh! I hear someone coming. Must go now. Please send short bread cookies. No more noni juice, please. Blech!

Much love. ~~Frillie

A magnificent creation, Aberjhani. I always feel very humbled when I read your offerings. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gifts. Love and peace.

I came, I saw and was conquered! It is lavish, exotic and BEAUTIFUL! Mind you, if Maria has anything to do with it, then that is just to be expected! :)) Well done Mr Awesome A, and to all those others from our circle who have contributed to making its premier edition such a stunning success, both visually and conceptually. Certainly one to watch! Great choices, too, for inclusion from your very own work... but then, nothing of yours could possibly fail anyway, so guess choosing was both easy AND pretty difficult! Excellent, thank you Kate xx

Wonderful isn't strong enough! Every word of praise that occurs -- powerful, evocative, brilliant, exhilerating, vivid, r e a l. . .--is inadequate!! L o v e it. Blueprint Review is now in my list of favorites. Thank you for posting this. With respect, admiration, and affection, 'Pea' <3

The gleam in your father's eye is pride now in a well-versed son.
This prose is so full of images and insights that I will have to read again and again to get it all. Rich.

Thank you for being such a gift to patrons of poets like me.
