    How true! The discovery, introduction to, love of, obsession with a new writer/friend
    for life.

    Wonderful. A bit like our own sentimentalisations of our first loves, our first intellectual crushes remain there, to be revisited, to be by our side as we grow. The flow of this just carries the reader along through the affair... Unique..... and oh so accurate. t x

    Perhaps it's is a bit like leaving the matinee as a child and becoming the hero and re-living the drama and the anguish and the passion, because you'd actually been there. And never forgetting. Ever. As usual, your beautiful poems set my imagination soaring.... love, Allie xxxxxxxx
