Craving that old sweet oneness yet dreading engulfment, wishing to be our mother's and yet be our own, we stormily swing from mood to mood, advancing and retreating—the quintessential model of two-mindedness.
11 November 2014
The need to become a separate self is as urgent as the yearning to merge forever. And as long as we, not our mother, initiate parting, and as long as our mother remains reliably there, it seems possible to risk, and even to revel in, standing alone.

A normal adolescent is so restless and twitchy and awkward that he can mange to injure his knee—not playing soccer, not playing football—but by falling off his chair in the middle of French class.

Close friends contribute to our personal growth. They also contribute to our personal pleasure, making the music sound sweeter, the wine taste richer, the laughter ring louder because they are there.

When I was in high school, in the mid-70s, I remember having torn out a poem from a magazine and memorized it. It was called " Some People's Children" and I have a vague feeling that it was written by Judith Viorst, but I can't find it anywhere. Anyone know anything about it?

My husband says we have been married 53 thousand years - sounds like, you, too have had a " good" marriage. When we were first married, you had a poem with a wonderful drawing of a wife (who is not a morning person) across from her sparkling husband. I have looked far and wide with no success so..... If at all possible, I would love to have a copy. As soon as I can, I will buy a copy of your latest.

Just read your beautiful poem 'Since Hanna Moved Away'. You have transformed the parting with a loved one into a lasting song to be cherished for ever. I will read more of your poems for a wholesome poetic pleasure. Thanks.

I read a wonderful piece in the NY Times (I think) around 1968. It was an ink drawing of breakfast between a surly wife and a cheery husband. She with a black cup of coffee and a cigarette, he all bright eyed with a huge breakfast spread. I would love to get a copy of this poem. Thank you for lots of great reading. dnkwest@gmail.com
