William Blake/SF Examiner Article/7 Coletti Paintings (For Sale!)

William Blake on Things Getting Better for Job (and Me too!)

From my experience, I'm more than inclined to agree with Blake that life gets better even in the occasional case of "that spoilsport voice in my head."

20 more years

when I brushstroke a painting
or improve a poetic image

when I realize just how much I love you
how much less I’d be without you

when my son calls me to beer and a pizza
when from nowhere good wishes cascade,

that spoilsport voice in my head
begins chiding, “you’ve got only 20 more years.”

The last pic reminds me of Kenneth Patchen's whimsical wonders, although your style is definitely its own. I like your lovely anniversary poem too. Best wishes for a swan-song! Hope your up quacking ducky in the next few months!
