Alan has grown quite accustomed to hearing the voice of God. He rarely was spoken to directly, but when the Almighty spoke to anyone within four hundred miles of you it was impossible not to listen and be grateful that it wasn’t you who was being reprimanded.

Poetry can capture many emotions, even in short form:

She could fade and wither

I did not care

I would still go mad with tenderness

at the mere sight of her face.


If anything lunch was too mch

Afterwards, roaming the streets of Chicago

Julie swore off remembrance.

Thank you for visiting and bringing your niece!

Today I brought my niece to this wonderful museum. I hope she is having a good time. I know a couple of the authors but I do not know many, but it is still fun to be here. These typewriters are bringing me back to my High School days. Back in 1983 I took my first typewriting class. I learned a lot on the typewriter. IN fact, I got up to 70 words a minute with only 3 errors. Not bad for a kid that never had any experience typing.

American Writers Museum, thank you so much for bringing back so many memories and thank you for this wonderful museum that I know my niece is enjoying.
