Very, very powerful, Teresa. I am simply amazed by him and will now need to learn more, since that was written in 2011. I hope he's still doing well. Thank you for introducing us. :-)ReplyDelete
He is doing well ... Tony has added a few photos from a club date he played on Nov. 14, just a few days ago ... :)Delete
Thanks, Teresa! Powerful words packed together. Such truth.ReplyDelete
Yes, good to see you, "Betty." :)Delete
Thanks for drawing our attention to this. Life is far more mysterious than we imagine, and far less complicated.ReplyDelete
It certainly is. I love that his mother held his face and told him he couldn't die. When we believe it's true, it's true.Delete

Thanks for sharing Tony's work. Amazing story.ReplyDelete
I was really enamored of his story, his simple, but elegant style of writing, and the beautiful affirmation of life and love it contained.Delete
To be pulled back to life twice is unbelieveable. What a great attitude he has developed from these experiences. thanks for the story -- barbaraReplyDelete
I think it's one of the most beautiful things I've read in quite a while.Delete
Good steer, Teresa. He's top drawer.ReplyDelete
alright ... thanks, tony. :)Delete
"I am the tin woodsman, hunting a heart. I'm the scarecrow, please deliver my brain. I'm the crocodile who swallowed the pocket watch. I haven't learned as much as I imagined I would by now. But I do "I believe we pass in and out of this world like a song on the wind. And that most of what we see and do in this life is grossly out of tune, behind or ahead of the beat.ReplyDelete
But there are moments. You've known them. A kiss in a parked car. A melody in the dark. A meeting of eyes. A babe come in a thunderstorm."
I could write this as my epitaph. Wonderful links, music, story... and you.
It's so good to "see" you again ... Thank you ... :)Delete
Wow I love the simplicity and clarity of his writing and he has quite the interesting story to tell.ReplyDelete
I really like his writing style, very clear and yet beautiful. Thanks for commenting, Manzi. :)Delete
This [just released ]youtube video of Simone Felice in London.--> ENJOY!ReplyDelete
If the book is as good as this piece it will, indeed, be a book to behold. Particularly liked the contrast of stark and sweet, in my opinion, art mimicking life, which is difficult to achieve. Thanks for sharing this!ReplyDelete
I really was drawn in with his simple yet eloquent style of writing, not to mention his story of returning twice, his mother's unwavering love and belief in him. Good to see you, Bill.Delete
Thank you. Yes, I took a month's hiatus, nothing planned, just got very busy with work, hunting, cutting wood, and being a member of our Town Selectboard. Just posted a piece that I think you'll like and have a few rattling around inside my skull. It is amazing how a small break helps rejuvenate the thought process.Delete
I'll be round today to read, I always appreciate your love of the wild. :)Delete
Wishing you a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year ahead. God bless you with more inspirations and creativity.ReplyDelete
What a lovely Christmas surprise ... so good to hear from you. A blessed Christmas season to you, as well. Thank you for your wishes. :)Delete
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, Teresa ;) and a glorious New Year ... I want to catch up with you then check out Tony's blog... I am so far behind in blogging and in reading ;)ReplyDelete
