I Found

If you ever spent a summer walking 4 miles, some unpaved, to sit in the backyard of an artist/poet/scientist and “just sit”, then you might have been a student of the Institute of Advanced Thinking.

Perhaps Bern is to poetry what Kandisky is to painting and what Shoenberg is to music.

No, he did not have a computer – – – or a Facebook – – – but little pieces of him are there too: https://www.facebook.com/bern.porter.50?fref=ts

Speaking of Mail Art, I got this postcard.

It isn’t his name,

it isn’t my name,

it isn’t my address,

but in a small town somebody who used to know me used to live there and the postmaster delivered it anyway.

So… Have you seen this guy? I wonder what ever happened to 'Liam.
