1. Many think it was Willy Wonka who came up with the first two lines of the Ode, but the words precede Wonka by some time, and had been even set to music several times. But Wonka delivers the lines with panache, perhaps being the consumate music maker and dreamer of dreams.

    I love this poem Carl Kruse. And yes, while at times it might not seem like it, WE ALL ARE dreamers of dreams and makers of music.

    Read it twice. Still glowing.

    I used to think I could be a writer, a great artist, but then I read poetry like this and I crawl back into my own head.

  4. Many thanks for your comments and as it’s Christmas Day wishing you all a fantastic holiday season. Here’s hoping that 2016 is bursting with magic and goodness aplenty.

  5. By the way Tostao stop that. You are you and have your own unique experiences. Work at what you’ve got to work out and who knows one day we may all be looking at you in awe. Do not give up and work it.

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
