    Reading your superb memoir, “Preserving Pappy”, made me laugh and cry, brood and cerebrate on these timeless matters of fate and family, but mostly it made me wish that I was as good a writer as you. Your ingenious use of words and uniquely created phrases were such a thrill to encounter and digest. Although your ending tried to distant your life and talents from your Pappy, you are clearly cut from the same cloth. I’m so glad I read this remarkable story. Not only was it entertaining but now I feel like I know you and your sweet, artistic Pappy more intrinsically and intimately…and that is an extraordinary gift, my friend. Cheers!

    I’ve passed here a few times and finally stopped. I am Stephanie, an old friend to Glen Case and Ken Gray. I think I rode to Canada with you and a few other folks. I actually got to live on the sailboat for 3 years. I enjoyed your poetry and other writing. I write poetry, and other things. Interesting how we have turned out. Glad to see you are well.

      Hello Stephanie.
      Many moons have passed since those days, and my memory does not serve me as well as I would, at times, wish it would. I do recall a couple living on a sail boat around Vancouver Island. Perhaps that was you? Anyway, it is good to hear from you, and we should stay in touch. Do you have a WEB site, or are you on FB? I would like to read some of your writings. Where do you live now?
      Stay well,

    I love the poem, The Gateman. I’m a Taoist and this poem speaks the way of the Tao, to live and let live, to follow and accept the natural rhythms of life without question. I am dealing with these issues now. We don’t always get what we want – hardly ever. But to end each day in peace we must accept and roll with what life hands us without anger or bitterness. I just have one question about the line that ends “Love Devine”. What do you mean by Devine? Is that just a misspelling? Anyway, thanks for the poems. You are a very, very talented wordsmith. Keep up the good work.

    • Mark Fought says:

      Hello Linda,
      Thank you for pointing out the misspelling. I have corrected it. Also, thank you for the compliment on my poetry. I don’t get much traffic on my site. I create because I am impelled to do so, but I am lazy about promoting my work. I expect that it will all fade an oblivious mist some fateful day.
      I hope that you will visit more often. Peace be with you.

        Hey, hey, hey…you have visitors.

        But I must say, I thought it was something else before commenting.

        That’s excellent, Mark!

        At least you have something to evaporate.

      • Linda says:

        Hi Mark. I’m here again reading your poetry. I love your art, as well, but you know written words are a source of great joy and inspiration for me. I love all your poetry and am awestruck by how talented a poet you are. The only problem I have with your poems is that they often make me think melancholy thoughts. Ha Ha. Keep up the good work. BTW, I am slow and lazy about promoting my work, too. I know I’m a good writer but I can’t even get agents to read my work…they just say, “not interested”. I will persevere, but you are right, our art will fade into an oblivious mist someday and we will never be heard from again. Peace and love. Linda

      • Mark Fought says:

        Thanks for you complimentary words, Linda. I appreciate your visiting my site. It gets rather lonely floating about in cyber space quite
        by itself. 🙂 Stay well and happy, my friend!

    You’re looking good, Marcus Aurelius! Hopefully all’s well! /// For some reason, I’m thinking of an Aspen Hummer and a Lemon Drop.

    Funny, Aspen Hummers were on my mind in the last comment as well.

    I need to pay you two a visit.

    Fun stuff!

    Hopefully this finds all is well, Marcus Aurelius!
    What I wouldn’t do for an Aspen Hummer!
    I was forced on Linkedin today and it has me out saying hello, after too long of a break.
    It’s great to see that you found a niche in student services! I don’t have to worry about you any more.
    The Pappy story was enjoyable, to say the least.
    Anyway, please drop me a line so I can get your email address without going the social media route. Though it’d do me good to communicate a little.
