Love it. The pith and paradox. =) Hope the dash to NY was a safe nonevent. =)

You very kindly followed my blog yesterday so I am visiting you and just found your beautiful poem. As an incorrigible dreamer it is a word I encounter often 🙂 I think will enjoy following you!
From one dreamer to another, thank you.
Brilliant. A contrary statement rooted in truth. Masterful work!
Reblogged this on The Breakdown of Taboo and commented:
Masterful work by Leonard Durso! Make sure to follow his blog and check out his other posts. Happy Holidays to everyone!
This is brilliant.
Thank you. I must stop by your blog now.
Oh don’t do that. I am writing very disappointingly right now.
