Do you?

Do you love him
Or is it just the thought of him
Which comforts you
Each and every night?

  1. Sometimes the reality falls far short of the ideal.
    That is why they say you should never meet your heroes. Who’s yours, may I ask?

    1. Very intelligent reflection. It makes a lot of sense.
      I have no idea who my heroes might be. I’ve been thinking about people whom I admire but I do not know if I can give them a heroic status. My spontaneous answer was Superman but that’s just because it’s a nickname for a favorite person of mine. So no hero, at the moment. Who is yours? Help me out in my reasoning here 🙂

      1. From my youth my heroes have always been creative people:writers, poets, songwriters. Maybe hero is too strong a word. Perhaps I should put it this way:it is always the wordsmiths and lyricists that I have admired. The ones who have interested me the most along the journey.

      2. Ah, yes, I have admired those creatives too (still do of course). I always find it amazing how new phrases and stories can be written from words put together, not to mention the various places stories can take you. Do you have a favorite author or creative?

  2. Erica, Erica:the questions you pose me! How long have you got? 🙂
    Well I’m always discovering new people, or searching for new people. It’s never ending but that’s part of the fun isn’t it?
    Songwriters wise I will stick with the three who I’ve listened to the longest:John Lennon, Jim Morrison, and Jeff Buckley.
    Poets-at the moment (!) I like Kenneth White (maybe not as well known but he writes about places and things that I like. It’s what speaks to you, yes?!. I’m currently reading your countryman Tomas Transformer, as I call him.
    Authors:I grew up loving Stephen King and James Herbert (I was a young horror buff) but have not read them so much in my later years. On my Goodreads profile I have listed George Mackay Brown (I love Orkney and all his stories are based there. If it wasn’t for my familiarity with the place would I still enjoy the books?) and Nikos Kazantzakis. From Crete, his writing style is dated now, but his books concern spiritual struggle, which I enjoy.
    I have to mention Harper Lee, because she wrote my all-time favourite book, which I return to every few years or so.
    I’m still searching. At the moment I’m working my way through Truman Capote’s works since I enjoyed his Music For Chameleons.
    That was a bit long winded wasn’t it?!
