On lazy sunday mornings (Book) - 3/14/2010 7:56:13 PM
I fell of the proverbial chair when Lo and behold i Was asked by someone in this roster to review his work. Why would anyone ask me? Is it because of my owm writing? But in my writing I do not make any effort to conceal the fact that I consider literature the most handicapped of arts since its worth and its dubious rewards are generally based on the magnitude of the response and, ah so rarely, on the quality of its substance. So my first and quickly following my second defensive responses were: It must be a joke! - And then: A hopeless case perhaps. But nevertheless as I told Florea in my reply, I clicked him out of the E-soup and … CONTACT! I could hardly believe it! Here is a young man setting up to climb the mountain that I have been trying to summit for 6 decades and, comparing to my own first approaches, he clearly stands a better chance that I ever did. He is young and so I expected to find obvious signs of youthful bravura aimed at recognition and eventual acclaim. But, although some of the impediments are unavoidable at this stage, like a climber slowed down by too much equipment or worse- the wrong equipment, he will have to make some crucial decisions. Yet from his work so far, it is evident that his sense of purpose is genuinely above the common aspirations of a consensual desirable end. And His honesty is clearly emerging in his self assessment and so as I went on reading he vividly reminded me of those precious stolen moments considered so special because stolen from a nebulous sense of duty, or worse, from unavoidably encountered commitments and begrudged bare necessities. His feelings were so familiar. And now I smile for I anticipate his own future experiences at least up to a point. These will he face as they are the difficulties of the terrain and the climb. I say, go for it Florea! Honour me by climbing the mountain that has defeated me. Do not hesitate, do not dither. Above all do not let readers and their dogs enter into your consideration and deflect you in any way. It is only this way that you may greatly reward us, and that should be both your aim and your own reward.

I like this Floea, Motivation of self can unfold not only in morning's birth but in each new moment. Sometimes when we think ahead at what we must face each day, it scares us. When all we really have to do is become each moments change...sometimes easier said than done. A reachable goal when we accept what stands before us. thanks for sharing your beautiful insight.

I am a hero (Short Story) - 3/16/2010 5:16:57 PM
I had in mind an in depth review of Florea’s paladin like baldness and pick out some of the specific characteristics that makes his writing endearing, but I decided to restrict myself to generalities lest my enthusiasm influence his spontaneity and above all his personal and unique originality. In fact I would suggest to him not to solicit reviews, and not to heed any gratuitous ones , negative or positive, in fact especially positive ones. He is bald, original and possesses a wide spectrum of consciousness which enables him to add bands and brightness to the common experience. Like a knight of lost causes he summons the out of the dimness of common mortals just to ride through them nonchalantly and with brio. THE Commonplace, the humdrum and unnoticed subjects and objects become through the prism of his mind enchanting kaleidoscopic images and tales. I may have said too much already. Isolate yourself my friend from the platea, and conjure what comes from within as pure as you can keep it for there cannot be better than what springs forth at the source.
