    Barry, I just read your bio and didn't realize we were in Venice, Fl. at the same time! We lived there from 1974-1993. My husband, Jim, and I were raising our 2 kids, living on Fiesole St. on the island, and running our restaurant, The Wedgwood, and Everymans/(soon to be Stormin'Normans after Jim's brother Norm) . I was active in the Art League, member of Florida Artists Group, and writing some then too. In the 90's we moved to Asheville where we have lived ever since. My daughter Jill grew up to be a Child's Mental Health specialist, and now is a director at the Safe Children's Coalition run by the Y. Small world. Wish I had known you then. Where do you live now?

Best Poem of Barry Middleton

Letter To Myself

I wish that I had written you
when I was young and strong and wise
I knew that I would never die
I'd face the world without disguise

but as I pen this note to you
I have grown old and tired and weak
but I recall that hopeful youth
it is to you that I must speak

I can but say what I was told
to quietly sit and watch the crowd
and see the good and evil there
and think before I speak aloud

and though I wrote it long ago
I would not take my own advice
and that has put me on this path
with wishing that I had thought twice

I've come to ...

love and mystery
are silent questions

like children ask
with curious eyes

then someone says
I know what it means
