On the Road (w/ War and Peace)


Traveling today to perform poetry at Art 6 in downtown Richmond, VA. If you are in the Richmond area, stop by, I would love to meet you. Guest posting today for Emily, entitled War & Peace.

Remember to honor those that serve, have served and those that fell never to rise again.

Nothing quite like reading your own words out loud to others. I'm sure your words will float and land and be well received. I know I've been enjoying them quite a bit these last couple of weeks.

Glad I found your page. Have a great trip. Give it.

I do not live that far from Richmond and regret that our paths cannot cross as I am a big fan of your writing! Your family looks precious. (Have you always had a mohawk?)

Sue said...

You have a beautiful family, Brian. Hope you have a wonderful experience with your reading.

(I know those who listen will!)

Nice looking family. Handsome dad, lovely boys and a lovely wife. I commented on Em's blog regarding the verse. Thanks for the veteran shout out.

Enjoy your poetry reading!

The Silver Fox said...

Let's see. Two alert, good-looking boys. A lovely young wife and mom. But you're trying to tell us that the Mohawked mountain madman standing there is the same guy who authors such sensitive and/or insightful poetry? No way. I'm not buyin' it. I think the real Brian is the timid guy holding the camera cuz the big dude said "I wanna pose with this family!" Nice try, anyway.

Lovely family photo, Brian! The boy riding piggy back before must be the elder one. A big boy now, he has to walk by himself. Every success on your poetry reading!

Safe travels, jj

Lydia said...

My nieces live in Richmond with their families. Wish I could have traded places with them for the evening.

I love this family photo (kudos to the photographer, whoever that might be). Damn, your wife is one of those women who knows how to artistically tie a scarf. Mine always look like I got worked over in an alley...guess it is time to consult online sources for "how to" do it right. :)

tony said...

Great Photo Brian!

Dave King said...

Great times! Have a ball!

Valerie said...

If I lived over there I'd be first in the queue to listen to your poetry. Absolutely loved the family picture.
Heehee I notice Silver Fox has you sorted!

The Empress said...

Oh my gosh!

When you said you were married to the most beautiful woman in the world, I thought you were just being a nice guy.

T really is!

Lovely to meet you, your family, and get a mental image for who is speaking on these pages.

Very nice, B. VERY NICE.

It's a pleasure...
