The Poem Peddler: Conclusion

"What are my dreams?" he asked.
I nodded.
He stood up from his typewriter.
He moved like someone entirely comfortable in his own skin.
"To play my clarinet," he said.
And then he did.

I liked what you did with the writer of poems.

I am thinking about starting a blog just to pass on some information about what I do to take my pictures. Do you think it would be helpful?

How funny. We both used the words 'comfortable in my skin' today. A lovely post.

The simpliest dreams are sometimes the easiest to reach..
I like his hands. On every picture you took, my eyes are attracted by those hands; They can work in a farm, write poems and play music..
Hands that create are hands that think.

Perfect conclusion, very nice series. Usually I am not fascinated by this kind of people, I'm a Vogon after all and barely tolerates any talented colleague...

This has to be the best series of one person I've seen for a while. Just fascinating I'm genuinely fond of this guy virtually.

The empathy with your subject glows through this series, BC. It is such a pleasure to see restraint at work.


Brava!

I have to confess that I don't get poetry. I read a lot of novels but poetry just doesn't make it for me But it's great to see that others seems to enjoy it.

This was a fantastic photo story, brattcat. I found the ending very satisfying . . . I won't soon forget this series.

Aw, sorry it's the conclusion. I have a feeling that this guy could write a book.
