That comes as no surprise. I'm a fan myself. Though not, I suspect, anywhere near as knowledgeable.

Just for fun: If you ever stumble across a made-for-TV movie called "Sweet Hostage" give it a look. It's one of the great pop-culture homages to Blake. Martin Sheen plays a Blake-quoting whack-job who kidnaps Linda Blair. 1975.

Blake was a big influence on me in my teens and 20s. I should revisit his work. Been a decade or three since I read any poetry.

Anyone have any insight as to how to get wayward 6 month old puppies to stop barking? The little guy is adorable and lovable, but engages in episodes where he barks incessantly at times. At this point, it's just a matter of time which one of us is going to lose it first if it keeps up: Miyoki, or June. (For those of you who think that June hasn't lost it yet, that is!) He's taken on a walk each day, and gets plenty of love and attention, but this barking nonsense is about to make June NUTS!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!


P.S. Post loudly.

Demon-strate calm, confident leadership.

Sounds painful. (Although your quote made June laugh hilariously!)

He especially barks whenever June stretches out on the floor to watch TV. Am losing it!
