    Anthony Bourdain 1956-2018

    He recently commented about his doubts that he could do another season. He seemed tired. Perhaps Tony had become too weary of what Anthony Bourdain had become, or could not become. A great loss to the world of humanity. Perhaps there is something about creative and talented types that we don't yet understand. Something about limitations and how they are dealt with.

    Anthony Bourdain 1956-2018

    Tony Sometimes the talent is strikingly obvious we all could see it never mind the cursing words or maybe that was his vent Adventure the world show us who the cooks are their human stories always to look forward to you knew it would be real But beneath his stories was another never told a fire that burned hidden in some painful place and how he snuffed it out Bourdain was unique and gave his all every time that son-of-a-bitch in words he would understand if he were looking back He knew who he wasn't but not so sure who he was said in an interview vulnerable real human who loved the struggles and fights We'll wonder, won't we what happened in Anthony to give it up so to cut short his story tells to end them at sixty-one

    Ode to My Left Hand

    Oh, what we take for granted, until . . . Arthritic pain in the saddle-bones at the base of my thumbs sings that song now - just trying to open a sealed jar. There must be a poem in that somewhere - maybe a senryu or a tonka . . . Hope you heal well, tho I know that can be difficult in the "winter" of our days.
