It's been a long time since I lived in Louisiana, but that's where I'm from and that's where I'm going. So many cool places between then and now, but it's time for home. I'll be there late August '13.
Thank you, Foster. I'm glad you read about my Irish boys.

Thank you for your comments on Homecoming 1944.
Many thanks, Foster, for the kind words for "Author Meets Unflattering Reviewer in Bar". I'm a tad late here as I let Fictionaut and other daily endeavors slide the past couple of weeks while getting my novel, Sacrifice, ready for a contest and then formatting it for a paperback edition on Amazon. All that's done now, so I have a little catching up to do.
Many thanks for your comment on my story Attila the Bun

Thanks for your fantastic comment and fave on "Feeling fences" and indeed, as you astutely noticed, I tried to put a lot of subtext between the lines (just like a fence).
Thanks, Foster. "Routine of the Abyss" is my attempt at minimalism. Sometimes the challenge is, how do you say it without saying it.
Foster, thanks for faving my poem "Factory Girl in a Blurred Photograph."
Hi, Foster. Thanks for reading 'Assiduity Thirteen.' I greatly appreciate your encouraging comment.
Thanks for EX!
Thanks for your engaged comment on my poem "Regret". Interesting to see that you relate so deeply with the time dimension.
Foster, thanks for the comment and fave on "Feel Me."
Thank you for feeling the way you did about When Borders was Alive and Well. The old man was real. I saw him coming up an escalator in a giant mall in Maryland. The magnifying glass was poking out of his tweed pocket.

Hi, Foster. Thanks for reading 'Assiduity Nine,' I greatly appreciate your very helpful comment.
Thanks, Foster. I'm glad you liked 'What the Future Holds...'

Thanks so much for your comment on the parents' use of language in Great Expectations.

Thanks, Foster for reading "A Straight Edge-Girl Recants." Cheers!
Hi, Foster. Thanks for reading 'Assiduity Two.' I greatly appreciate your helpful comment.

Great comment on "The Knitting Needle," Foster. Thank you for the fave!

Thanks for faving the visa poem. The title is admittedly bizarre. Guess I had visas on my mind!
Fos, thanks for "the question" what you wrote and all, I appreciate!

Hi Fos: Thank you for commenting on and liking my poem "Play." It was an interesting piece to write, and I'm glad its final incarnation works so well.

Thanks for your kind comment on and fave of "Black Ice." Appreciate you as a reader, Fos!
I loved your comment on "The Devil's Advocate." Far superior in my book of enlightened men than the more typical idea of getting a daughter when you really wanted a son, but ending up loving her anyway. (Not that there is anything wrong with loving "anyway.")
E a Forest, grazie mille. Il tuoi complimenti sono molto apprezzati.
Thanks, Foster, for your comments on "Swim." Much appreciated!

Thanks, Foster. Great comment on "Paradise Island." Yes, some (or much) ambiguity in the poem.
"these thoughts swim in your head"--well, that's what the male narrator thinks anyway. The truth? Well...
I kind of think the poem's more about him than it is about her.

Foster, you are truly a friend. You always say nice things about my scribbles. Thanks for the great review of my crazy story.

Loved your comment about "Breathless," Foster. Thanks so much.

Thanks for the comment on my piece. How have you been? I haven't talked to you in a while. I am living in Saint Louis now, everything here is still very new. What adventures have you been up to?

Foster, as always, thanks and right back at you.
Foster, so happy you liked my story burned, thank you
And I'm still thinking about A Life Twice Told. That one really sticks with me, Foster. I just love it. Have you sent it off somewhere? You should get it OUT there!!
Foster -- thanks so much for your comment and fave on Time to Rest. And I'm so glad I came to Burger and Fries -- is it part of a larger work? I think it could be... there is a lot there, but you know that more than anyone else, I reckon.
Hi Foster! Many thanks for reading & commenting on "Halo"! Happy you enjoyed it.
Hey, Foster. Thanks for the comment on and fav of "Parables for Rodin." Glad you enjoyed the poem.
Foster, so glad your going to write something for Oil group. It can be from any pov, and satire/dark humor is always welcome
Thanks so much, Foster, for your read on Between. Glad it struck a chord!
Foster, I'm so glad you liked "Shrimp." Hope you will considering joining the Oil group and perhaps posting one of your amazing stories
Thanks for the comment on A Night of Not Knowing. Looking forward to coming back here soon, off to work now. Did you get a job yet? I know what it's like not working for a long long time... and how hard it is to transition back to it... Good to meet you here. Will be back to read very soon.
Thanks for the comment on "Extracurricular," Foster. I'm happy you liked it.
Foster, our Esp must've crossed because you passed through my mind yesterday. Thank you so much for Summer in the City! Hope you are doing well
Foster, Thanks so much for your note. (And for reading.) Hope you're doing well.
Thanks for your comment on my Amsterdam story. Yes, so many stories, so little time!
I enjoyed reading the little bio you sent me with 'A Life Twice Told' and your 'About' section on here. You seem like a very interesting person who has lived in a lot of interesting places, I hope to do the same someday.
Thanks Foster :-)
Foster, I appreciate your comments about "Black Orchids" and my writing. Thank you very, very much.
Foster - thanks for the kind words about my story "Proposal". I agree, it was out of nowhere. It was from a prompt (as usual). Much appreciated!
Thank you, Foster, for reading "Classmates," the fav, and your kind words. So glad to hear you thought the mood ran through all three: I felt it, but couldn't see it for myself on the page. Thanks!
Hey thanks for your comment on Pleiku Jacket.
Thanks for your thoughtful comments on "Real Estate," Foster! Much appreciated.
You're on the money with the Hemingway parallel in "Snowed In." My early idol. This story was written a few years back. I've changed, I'm not sure whether for the better or worse.
I'm glad you liked my strange white goat piece!
Foster, Thanks for your kind note on Common Trade. I really appreciate it.
thank you Foster for the words on Sweet & Sour, much appreciated
Foster, thanks for your read and great words on my St. Barts story.
People still read Turgenev? Wow.
Foster, the story you wrote is highly original. Let's face it-- once the first potter made the first pot, there were no more "so-called" original pots. But realistically, every time one puts pen to paper, another totally new and original world is created. The only similarity between your story and Cheever's was the meeting of father and son. Your story brought his to my mind. Yours is yours, his is his. They are both great stories. But yours is uniquely yours.
You are most welcome Foster. Love your stuff.
(p.s. For some time now, I have been mis-reading your name as Foster and thinking it's a pretty cool name. a late onset of selective dyslexia).
Foster, thank you so much for your kind comment about "Villa Monterey" - means a lot.
Foster, thank for reading Liquid Compass. Glad you enjoyed it.
Foster, you are flying with Eight States Away-- Congrats, it's a hell of a good story
Thanks Foster, for your kind comments.
Thanks for the comments, Foster. "Eight States Away" is another awesome, awesome story, man.
You are more than welcome, Foster :) I can't wait to read more of your work!
Hey, Foster. Very cool, your comments on Little Walter, and, yes, I think we can all see ourselves in there somewhere. I had hoped so, anyway. Hurt is a lonely place and sometimes company can help. The character in this story is still hurting and may still have more to tell. I'm not sure. But thanks so much for taking time to give my work such a careful read.
Your latest-- "Eight States Away" could be a Twilight Zone episode, if there was still a twilight zone (is there one out there??) Story has a film noir feel, yet the writing feels fresh
Foster, Thanks so much for your comments on "Estranged." I try to write stories that have that good kind of ambiguity, something else going on underneath the surface. I can't take credit for it; it just happens. Sometimes I get lucky!
Foster, thanks for reading Girl -- and for your kind note. I'm so happy it worked for you.
ps-- love Turgenev, too, esp Fathers & Sons
Foster your words on my poem Wash made my morning! Thanks so much. I used to live in Philly
Again, thanks for the kind words, Foster. Glad you liked "The Birds."
Foster...thanks for your post, great to meet you here and read your work...and ditto for sure on inspiration slot #2 above: Man reminisces on a distant memory. The older we get the more of 'em just keep crowding about wanting some voice
That voice just got to me -- it's real and true and demonstrates such command; I look forward to reading more of your work.
I'm a Philly girl, or former, but return now and again for the pretzels and a whole lotta accent.
Hey Foster, thanks for your wall post. My pleasure on the small assistance. It's a great story, bud.
Thanks for the great review of "Quitting." Kind words. I really appreciate it.
Foster, Cactus sticks. You made a landscape that is like a film, and stays in the mind
well, it just hits close to home, and not so much situationally, just in a broader sense of how life moments become like phantoms that one time were warm and vibrant. Oh, i think it is okay to cry from time to time reading stories - what it really means, Foster, is that your writing is powerfully effective (and that i am a tad sensitive to the subject)
Hey Foster I like your writing and thanx for commenting on mine.
Foster, A Life Twice Told is one of those stories that stays with me. I think you went into a part of the unconscious mind where fear of death, that "what if" gets carried. And you did it masterfully for this story
thanks for your kind comment, foster. italy...if the memories still hang around, join the second tongue group for (virtual and actual) expatriates. enjoyed your story 'a very quiet evening' immensely. respect for knowing your themes - that bodes well.
time in italia, always a good thing--
right on man.
It's my pleasure, Foster - A Very Quiet Evening is a great story :)!
Most welcome, Foster.
And thank you in kind, Foster, for the comments on "The Get-Up." I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Thanks, Foster, for reading and commenting on my story “Bobby Fischer in Budapest”!
Thanks for your thumbs up for my bridge jumper story.
wow, i didn't even know i had a wall, but i'm very happy to have you deface it.
hi Foster. I'm honored to be the first to graffiti your wall. I'm so glad to see you here.
