TRUE (3) What It Means To Go

We are going to Southeast Asia today. For my generation Vietnam is a part of who we are, and I’ll be glad to be there.
If I can I’ll send you poems

Used to be easier.
I didn’t have so much
to leave behind. Now
my life is here. People
I love what little I know
still I am happy
to go. What we are able
to see is who we are.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Enjoy Esther! We visited Hanoi and Halong Bay, the Unesco site, last year! Stayed at the Metropol. If you go take a tour of the bomb shelter under the bar and view the painting gifted to the Hotel by Joan Biaz of a novice Buddhist priest- Stunning!!
