The Senior Source Book (Book) - 5/26/2007 5:33:34 PM|
Victor, as a reasonably healthy octogenarian, I've been around long enough to experience many of the issues you've addressed in the Introduction to "The Senior Source Book". Interestingly enough, my children are among the Baby Boomers of the 1950's, and we're beginning to share and help each other with some of these 'growing older' trials and tribulations.
When my copy of your book arrives, it will also be shared with my own brood of Boomers. I'm sure it will be as comprehensive as the other books of yours that are in my library.
Thanks for addressing our issues.
The Weekend Gardener- The Busy Persons' Guide To A Beautiful Backyard Garden (ebook) (Book) - 4/10/2006 3:26:22 PM
"I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is taking on a garden for the first time"...
I am most impressed with this eBook. In 155 pages Victor Pryles
covers all the main areas of a typical backyard from lawns, through flowers, vegetables, fruit and even a section on natural landscaping. The book is ideal for the novice gardener who is looking for maximum results with minimum effort.
A section on easy care plants gives the author's selection of plants and
shrubs that are proven performers which will tolerate a little benign
neglect and rarely suffer from diseases and insects.
Another chapter reviews garden tools explaining how to select those that are essential and avoid acquiring a collection of useless gadgets.
The book ends with a month by month calendar of activities to act as a reminder of what should be done when throughout the year.
I can thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is taking on a garden for the first time, although those with experienced green thumbs will pick up a few tips as well.

Good story, very well done! :)
A Note From La Gioconda (Short Story) - 4/19/2006 7:48:46 AM
Lovely and comtemplative - a piece always in movement, just like its subject, that could have only been achieved by a master, whose spell is not on the subject, but on his readers. Great work!
Chistina's World (Short Story) - 3/21/2006 6:08:07 AM
Victor, your friend is right. This is just gorgeous. The beauty of your words - "a sparkle of universal joy" - makes my heart ache. Yearning indeed! Looking very much forward to the next.

The Diner (Short Story) - 3/12/2006 2:29:53 PM
Victor, this is the most amazing story - nostalgic and hard-hitting, panoramic and totally absorbing - biography wrapped in lore wrapped in just another day in a painting. A fantastic read!

I agree with what you say but some people would not shut up even when their lives do depend on it. Sometimes speakers do tape themselves to work out the bugs.

I Once Loved Allen Ginsberg (Poetry) - 6/25/2006 10:09:12 AM
Echoes of Ginsberg in a somewhat whimsical mood butterfly through these lines like the spirits of his entire Beat posse. Great poem.
I Once Loved Allen Ginsberg (Poetry) - 6/23/2006 7:57:48 PM
i met Ginsberg a few times and had the opportunity to speak with him ... went to many of his readings down at St. Mark's church in Manhattan and various city colleges ... he was certainly a poet larger than life ...

The Folly Of Re-Building New Orleans (Poetry) - 10/25/2005 1:16:12 PM
I wonder, if they do rebuild, will they include the poor, the black, the immigrants, the gay/lesbian communities, the very people that gave New Orleans its special blend of gumbo? The way I see it happening, it's not happening...only certain people with "connections" are getting the contract and leaving the disenfranchised out. Sad. New Orleans, I'm afraid, will never be the same.
Powerful, thought provoking write, thank you, Sir.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The Old Neck Still Swallowing Drugs (Poetry) - 4/23/2005 7:49:26 AM
Victor, I never experienced any "joy of drugs" during my youth
but in my senior life now, the Lipitors and other drugs I take
help maintain my "joy of life". So take your heart drugs and
enjoy your new life, too, my friend.
The Old Neck Still Swallowing Drugs (Poetry) - 4/20/2005 11:40:50 AM
victor, i have always said it was a good thing i gave up the fun drugs in time to pay for the necessary ones...God help me if i tried to afford both at this age. i enjoyed this

I'm Capturing The Lonely Little Spaces (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 5:40:46 AM
I really enjoyed this poem.You seem to question art:can photography be a way to possess life?How can one photograph capture the essence of place...Is the eye of the photographer ,the eye of the beholder?
A philosophical poem maybe. Lovely!Anne Pawlak.

Sylvia Plath! (Poetry) - 10/13/2003 4:23:27 AM
Sexton & Plath were remarkable poets. Their poems and bios certainly left a mark on me, almost inviting me to join them. Like you, I refused and kept on living, at least trying to live. Excellent piece.
Sylvia Plath! (Poetry) - 10/12/2003 8:38:58 PM
This awed me! I love Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath! Fine poets. I agree in every way--they were too young. Your images and longing are very exquisite. This is a very fine piece of work. Was a pleasure to read you.
Sylvia Plath! (Poetry) - 10/12/2003 7:57:49 PM
