Through the Past, Into the Future
Always enjoy your posts. Thanks for taking the time. best, bob
Have you considered doing a book? This post was so thoughtful. It's one of your best yet!
Thank you, Bob!I would love to do a book, Barbara. One subject I'd love to explore more is the New Haven - Northampton Canal. It never fails to amaze me that the solid ground I stand on where I catch the bus here in Westfield to get to work in Springfield (at the Stop & Shop on Main Street) was once part of a man-made waterway stretching from Northampton to Long Island Sound and that that particular section was widened out and known as the 'Port of Westfield.' I also find it cool that many of the Irish ditch-diggers lived right in that area, many on Mechanic Street, which I walk up every morning, and where my maternal great-grandparents (Cavanaughs) found themselves shortly after they came over from the Emerald Isle. Maybe someday I'll get around to tackling the subject.As far as poetry kind of stuff, I have enough for ten books, lol. Most of it is kind of gloomy, so, even if there is a market for it, I'm not sure that's what I want to leave behind in the world. I am finding that I'm beginning to lighten up a bit, though. If I'm not writing a lot of great, upbeat poems, at least I'm avoiding penning any gloomy ones! Take Care!Mark
