take one of The Never Ending Literary Debate Between Jack J and Janine J

Me (in reference to “green awning, Brookyln, New York) : Did you read my new poem?

Jack J (also known as  Dad): Yes, I did.

I have problems with your imagery.

Me: That must mean I’m onto something.

Jack J: I really hope that you are.

The best, and most painful critics are always the people that you love and admire the most.

Yet another time:

Jack J: I just don’t get it. (shakes his head and frowns) I mean, it must be good if people are publishing it, but I just don’t get it.

Oh, fatherly love and support. Stayed tuned for more.

  1. Janine – I don’t know if you noticed, but I linked to your blog from the side of mine.

    I’m glad you are reading it! I’m having fun writing it and its reminded me how much I enjoy to write!

    My mom keeps me informed about what you are up to, to some degree. Alabama?

    Hope all’s well.

    That’s dad. We’re adults, and yet we continue to seek his approval because he’s our toughest critic.
