Thank you, Marian, for letting me talk you into these things! It's always a pleasure to chat with you.
Oh my!! What an idea for an interview.. I just love it. Thank you both for sharing something of your friendship with us all today.
Nothing tells a poet's story better than their own words. Nicely done!
quite possibly the most entertaining interview format in the history of ever.
What CDG said - this is so delightful and entertaining, I wondered why no one ever thought of it before. How cool are you two? SO much fun!!!!! Now you will have us all interviewing in verse, as if meeting deadlines isnt challenging enough, hee hee. I so loved this. I see Young Son has new glasses. Tell him he looks like Harry Potter, then he'll love them!!!! Such adorable faces in that photo, all three. Happiness, just to look at you.
young son IS harry potter. those aren't glasses for seeing, they are glasses for being! he had a scar made with eyeliner on his forehead most of the summer, too. :)
Oh, I'm glad to read the scar is fake! Wonderful interview, wonderful children, fabulous format.

This was areal delight. I too love an economy of words and I am always paring down poems. This was a very special interview to me ... a real sharing from these two poets ... plus I am getting dinner in the bargain!

likewise! thank you, lovely friends. do try that recipe, it's YUMMY and very autumnish. mmmm.
Well Done ladies; I love the flow and the expression of being in poetic tongue~ Insightful and fun!
This style fits you. You're a great interview free and fun like this. Awesome, Marian.
