Sonya is one of the most amazing writers I've ever met across time. She holds her own; past, present and future. She writes timelessly, about subtle things that one might never notice, if not for her busy pen. You should attempt to read everything she has written here; because you won't find this much brilliance and honesty available in very many places today. And once you start to read her, you can never stop again; that is the spell and the special magic of Sonya. If reading the poems of anybody could make you a better writer yourself; it would have to be these poems of Sonya as much as anyone's; she can hold her own no matter the era or subject matter. As a human being she is that rare honest sort, that what you see is just what you get, and she never fails to amaze with deep insight, both as a writer and as a friend. But don't take my word on all this; much better to find out for yourself. (smile)

Florentino...probably not Irish. However probably a person that is a truly expressive and really good writer. I so much enjoyed you body of work.
