Comment from Sweden

I must say I like you poems a lot. Picked up "Sailing alone around the
room" - it is fantastic - remindes me about Omar Khayyam a bit - a type of
every day poems - realistic writing.
Thank you! Mette

The poor man at the doctor's office 5 minutes ahead of you will get the
doctor's bill, so don't sweat it!
