  1. Thanks for your intention to have your father’s poetry posted. I miss his presence and his poems. Thanks also to those who are making suggestions about how to make this happen. ❤


    • I would look into scheduling post in advance by going to publishing, but it would depend on how much time you wanted to dedicate to it as, you’d need to write out the poems if they aren’t already in his drafts.


  2. It appears Paul’s many friends have offered some suggestions. I sincerely hope you’re successful in keeping his blog up, as his personal absence is deeply missed. I think of him daily, as I crank out poems that maybe he’d comment on favorably. And from time we’d make each other laugh–which was the best part, over and above the fine poetry he gave us.


  3. I’m actually writing a piece about Paul’s father, your grandfather, who had MS. I’ve been told some of his poems are about your grandfather. Any chance you could send me one?


  4. PS. It’s for a literary journal published by the U of Calabria, dedicated to the Italian Diaspora. I’ve translated an eloquent and moving letter written in Italian by Paul’s father. Wd love it if there was a “greatest hits” volume of Paul’s poetry. Glad for any help.


  5. I’m hoping you have gotten an answer about putting your father’s poems on a loop. WordPress.com should have an answer to your question. There should be a way to schedule 3 to 4 reposts of his poems. That way a Daily Digest will be generated for all those who follow your father’s poems. Then we can reblog them to our followers who didn’t get a chance to read his works before his passing!
