I love this Susan. You have created the image of this vagabond through your words. Loved your recitation too.

Haunting and beautiful, Susan. Such a visceral picture is painted – I love that!!

Thank you, Beautiful Lady! It’s strange that even though I wrote this so long ago and the woman is no longer roaming my neighborhood, I could walk outside and see another woman just like her.

You’re so welcome!! It is strange and so sad.

I could lose myself in your poems.

not sure what to say as i struggle to put my thoughts onto paper………..but it is really good and your voice makes the poem just that much more special.

The contrasts in Hollywood are so ironic.

They are, Mark. It is a very strange place to live; I have always had a love/hate relationship with it.

Hi Susan! I need to go on to your site. I wasn’t able to listen right now, but you know I will. I’m anxious to see the design work on your channel!
June 5, 2019 at 6:10 am
You are lovely and good, Kim! Thank you. I can’t figure out how to make the YouTube channel more visually inviting; I am not great with the tech stuff. I am also incredibly behind on reading your posts. I am in a jumble right now.
June 5, 2019 at 6:14 am
You have a lot on your plate. Don’t worry about my posts. Just start reading current ones as time allows. Please don’t stress about going back and reading old posts. I don’t do that anymore if I’m out, I do not expect others to do that either. Read when you can, let the rest go! I’m not keeping score! Never would. Love to you Susan!

Thank you, Lovely Kim! Love to you!
June 5, 2019 at 2:04 am
We want more! More of your poetry, more of your voice.
June 5, 2019 at 6:11 am
Thank you, my friend! I needed this loveliness and kindness today! I was thinking of stopping for a while, but I may record some more now.
June 6, 2019 at 4:14 am
Sending more love your way, and a big hug

That’s incredible–even though I was listening, I could picture her so vividly!
June 9, 2019 at 11:30 am
Thank you, Suzanne! I actually encountered this woman in the bathroom at my psychiatrist’s office when I was about 18….I have never forgotten her!
June 9, 2019 at 2:17 pm
She seems VERY memorable!
