"A Person's Vitality"





"A person's vitality - and I appreciate the humor of myself, a dead man, speaking of such things - is difficult to capture in words. Our friends race through our lives like shooting stars, and when, of an evening's conversation, we manage to enclose their fire and our own within a few hours and the space of a room, it is a taste of eternity, the true meaning of friendship." 
-Paul Williams (1948 - March 27, 2013)

  2. I miss Paul's writings. He was a regular go-to guy when researching and better appreciating the work of Bob Dylan. His beautiful philosophical book about the log and the fire still touch me in moments when I doubt the validity of every day living. I wish her were still with us.

His beautiful philosophical book, Remember Your Essence, with its images of the log and the fire, still touch me in moments when I doubt the validity of every day living. His spirit is one I really miss now in this world. I wish very much he were still with us.

  5. Hello, somebody sent me some excerpts from "Common Sense" I posted them in a blog and have had several people say how much they resonate with it (about building a bridge) - it feels very much of this time we are in now - Spring 2020 ... I wanted to write and pass on one comment in particular and that is when i found teh whole poem and it feels so prophetic so i have posted that as well here and added in a little of Paul's life from your 2 blogs :

    Comment : " Our Time captured Perfectly Paul thank you. Now we stand on the Edge of Our Dreams BE-coming REAL-ity, Doubts, Seize the Moment to undermine us. Our plan is Divine Inspiration, can't fail, in our hearts we courageous ones have already built IT & will shine our Light upon for All who wish to follow. I Love the Simple Brevity of your poem packing such a strong message! "

    it is all fully accreditted but if you are not happy with any of it I will take it down - comment within the blog and I will see it. much love to you, it is a sadder story than i expected when i started to find out who had written it but also a very powerful and magnificent one. SND xxx
