Bridges to Burn (Book) - 2/18/2006 2:26:18 PM|
Looks like a good read. Makes you want to find out if Jim Craft will turn out to be a crok, after all.
Bridges to Burn (Book) - 2/18/2006 12:42:27 PM
<i> Review from Reader: </i> BRIDGES TO BURN – The final of Jo Janoski’s Trilogy of the folks and neighborhoods of her hometown, Pittsburgh. As with her first two books, TEA AND CHOCOLATES and FAITHFUL (if you haven't read these, hey, watcha waiting for?), Jo writes of the characteristics of people – good and bad. In this latest book you will find intrigue, “snoops”, friendships, deceit, terrorist plots, and the importance of learning to trust and love again. ‘Nuff said. You betcha, I liked it!
This may be the last of Jo’s Trilogy, but surely not the last of her imaginative and explosive writings.
Tea and Chocolates (Book) - 10/23/2004 7:33:09 PM
Jo Janoski has woven a puissant tale around the lives of two very different women. Writer Janoski is a poet, photographer and now a writer of compelling novels. <b>Tea and Chocolates </b> is an absorbing tale featuring a well written and interesting premise. Reader attention is caught from the opening lines as we meet Emily preparing for school. Energy moves the narrative along.
Tea and Chocolates (Book) - 6/26/2004 12:37:43 AM
Sounds like an interesting story. Congrats, my friend!
Tea and Chocolates (Book) - 6/25/2004 2:45:15 PM
JO! I am soooo proud of you! AND FOR YOU! I was fortunate to have read a few more chapters at one time, and can highly recommend your book for a wonderful read; great insight into the lives of young ones in early 1900's, growing into maturity. OK...I'M BUYING ;o)
The 60's (Short Story) - 1/6/2011 10:19:59 AM
This is so well written and captures the turmoil of the 60s perfectly. I'm a little bit younger so don't remember quite as much. Plus because of parents' bigotry I was confused. They weren't upset when MLK died, they were glad someone finally got that "n". But you do have one thing a little off, JFK was shot in 1963 not 64.
The 60's (Short Story) - 12/2/2006 8:36:21 AM
The 60s certainly had its many mountains and valleys; well written, Jo, with many memories of those years (me, mostly in my 30s). Lots of history written in that decade.

Ocean Vanity (Short Story) - 11/2/2006 9:09:19 AM

Ocean Vanity (Short Story) - 11/2/2006 6:50:11 AM
Good story, Jo...and 'take' on the picture. Isn't it fascinating how people will look at a picture and find a different meaning to it?
This was a fun assignment for the Workshop!
Captive Rose (Short Story) - 2/18/2006 2:29:29 PM
This could be the beginning of a good novel
Captive Rose (Short Story) - 3/30/2005 3:15:19 PM
Captivating, indeed, Jo! Can't help but feel Elisabeth will soon be flying on the wind.

The Bashful Swan (Short Story) - 6/20/2004 3:10:03 PM
Very nice story. I like your ending and the lesson it teaches. I'd make two changes though; the name Winnie conjures up thoughts of Winnie the Pooh. I'd change it. Second, by making Winnie a swan and giving her self-esteem issues, you risk comparisons to Hans Christian Anderson's "Ugly Duckling" story. I'd concentrate on the problem of shyness, not poor self image, and make Winne another kind of creature. Best wishes with this project.
The Bashful Swan (Short Story) - 6/19/2004 8:56:10 AM
charming and delightful story, jo; thanks so much for sharing! enjoyed much~!

Children (Poetry) - 3/2/2008 7:47:17 AM
We have to sacrifice a lot to raise children, but they
are worth it.
Come back Jo
Children (Poetry) - 2/17/2007 9:25:21 AM
Children are indeed a reminder that things could be a lot better if we stayed more like them. Thank you, Jo. Love and peace,
Children (Poetry) - 1/30/2007 10:54:31 AM
Loved the poem. I can relate as I become a child again when my grandson comes visiting. Victor
Children (Poetry) - 1/30/2007 7:12:10 AM
Interesting, but pi is an irrational number, doesn't have a terminating fraction...
Rainy Day Blues (Poetry) - 1/24/2007 11:59:17 AM

enjoyed this very much!!!
Rainy Day Blues (Poetry) - 1/23/2007 2:12:58 PM
A poetic form which you handled very well indeed. By itself a lovely poem. Victor

Great job you did on this poem, Jo. Monorhymes ain't easy (I'm still working on mine). And the photo is so beautiful. It is just outside your window, right?
By the Window (Poetry) - 1/9/2007 4:41:10 PM
Jo this is so beautifulllllllll!!! we have had no accumlation of snow in my woods yet.
By the Window (Poetry) - 1/9/2007 10:27:30 AM

First rate! Jo you excel with this one! Excellent poem!
Have a great new year!
Stormy Seas (Poetry) - 1/2/2007 12:13:51 PM
How the "Seas" do come into both our poetry this New Year, Jo. A very good acrostic poem, that stirs our imaginations of the "Reeling, rolling, roaring feat."
Happy New Year to you and hubby!
Stormy Seas (Poetry) - 1/2/2007 12:06:31 PM

Singing a Happy Tune (Poetry) - 12/31/2006 1:05:51 PM
Yes Jo. I do believe "the red-nosed clown" is mostly trying to hide the pain. Nicely done. Love and peace to you,
Family Tea Party (Poetry) - 12/31/2006 1:03:59 PM
A fine analogy, Jo. Thank you for sharing this offering. Happy New Year to you,
Family Tea Party (Poetry) - 12/27/2006 7:13:13 AM
I like this! A beautiful version of the 'family tree' (didn't want to call it a family bush :o)
Now...where's the Chocolates to go with the Tea?
Family Tea Party (Poetry) - 12/26/2006 2:00:21 PM
Quite a contrast of a family being petals on roses and still provoke something cacaphonous. Outstanding septet Jo. Victor
Singing a Happy Tune (Poetry) - 12/23/2006 8:40:09 PM
have seen this on a daily basis in NY ... unfortunately, it has become part of the landscape ...
good iamgery ... potent message ...
Singing a Happy Tune (Poetry) - 12/22/2006 7:26:43 AM
Sadly, this occurs much too often around Christmastime...lonely souls that seem to have given up on life. Or maybe life gave up on them...
Makes us stop and think...
Singing a Happy Tune (Poetry) - 12/21/2006 10:12:58 AM
There is always a reason for habitual drunkenness. You brought this out splendidly in your poem. Sad, very sad. But who can say there are no sad things during Christmas? Have a Blessed Christmas, Jo. Victor
Singing a Happy Tune (Poetry) - 12/21/2006 6:48:07 AM
Who hovers inside the red-nosed clown?
Is his soul weeping from being alone?
Why does he hide? What knocked him down?
Truly sad tales, and probably many different reasons hidden inside.
To Give (Poetry) - 12/19/2006 8:46:35 PM
Splendid gift, we could all do with joyfulness, and more of it will not hurt. Blessings to you and yours Jo. Victor
To Give (Poetry) - 12/19/2006 3:06:17 PM

A Story of Cherubs (Poetry) - 12/12/2006 6:45:23 AM

My Hat and Two by Two--Two Poems (Poetry) - 12/5/2006 3:52:51 PM

My Hat and Two by Two--Two Poems (Poetry) - 12/5/2006 10:34:16 AM
I can just picture your hat flying about...and you slipping/sliding trying to fetch it!
Also like the image of two-by-two snowflakes dancing and prancing - a delightful ballet through the air...
Good ones, JO!
My Hat and Two by Two--Two Poems (Poetry) - 12/5/2006 10:22:44 AM
I love both of them. Very well done. I am not cut for such poems, but yours are perfect. Victor

Winter Haiku (Poetry) - 12/4/2006 1:29:11 PM
What? I overlooked commenting on these beauties?? And they are all three very picturesque, JO.
btw...for the previous 6 days/nights, we've had Winter weather: started with Arctic Blast of sleet, ice and some snow, down in low 20s at nights, and high 30s - mid 40s in daytime. Ground was warm enought to melt snow, only to freeze over after sundown...I hibernated after sundown.
Winter Haiku (Poetry) - 11/28/2006 9:40:40 PM

A well distilled feeling of the season. Well done Jo. You were always good at these poems. Victor
Autumn Rains (Poetry) - 11/14/2006 1:25:41 PM
A lovely canvas of words you have painted for us, JO.
I'm hoping for snow this year (always optimistic :o), but with temps in mid-to-upper 70s, no acorns falling from the oaks...no tellin' what's ahead.
Love reading your poetry!
The Veteran (Poetry) - 11/10/2006 8:54:39 PM
This is very meaningful, Jo. My father was a veteran. He never talked about it. He never expected anything. Still... You're right and thank you for this timely message. Love and peace,

Thanks for this tribute Jo
The Veteran (Poetry) - 11/7/2006 3:50:35 PM
Oh, my........this reaches in and grips the heart with a painful squeeze. How we treat those who served is a crying shame. Thank you for this powerful rememberance; as a Veteran (who walks on a cane, BTW), I salute you. God bless our men and women who served, and God bless you!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Forest Hymns (Poetry) - 9/14/2004 2:49:58 PM
Up north, we could travel in virtully any direction and eventually come across a weedy trail with no "No Trespassing" signs. Pulling over and abandoning the truck for awhile, we'd stroll across fields and through woodlands, just pleased to be somewhere different with no other signs of human life aside from the trail itself. Here in Florida, no matter where we go, there are already a hundred-plus cars parked nearby, a hundred-plus people making noise never far away, and visible soda cans, beer bottles, condoms, food wrappers, burnt out sneakers and what have you pretty much every yard of the way. Thank you, if just for a moment, for allowing me to relive nature as I've come to love and adore it. Let's not turn the rest of America into a huge party place and public trash dump.

Forest World (Poetry) - 8/15/2004 4:09:25 PM
Interesting exercise. But I like the idea of the forest more. 'Stand like Druids of eld, Stand like Harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosems.' The trees, to Longfellow in Evangeline.

Forest World (Poetry) - 8/15/2004 1:26:30 PM
"Forest World" speaks - Pan's language - and depicts the sylvan's environment. A poetic short with gradiose and style.
I salute You, Poet!
