  • thank you Steve for inviting Etgar, and Etgar for accepting the invitation, a sweet gift to us.
    I have read other poems from this poet but did not know this one. Your conversation really does help the poem to come alive. Etgar, I really appreciated you voicing your thinking about what we choose to focus on and the need/desire for optimism. The default position for many of us seems to be the tendency to the negative which is so easy to do and requires little effort. Choosing an optimistic viewpoint does require an active choice and much more effort. Much appreciated.
