places in the future

Pablo Neruda is one of my so very favorite poets. How I wish I could have known this man, spent time sitting at a table across from him and listen to him tell his story and read his poetry. Wow!

Pablo Neruda

“and that’s why i have to go back
to so many places in the future,
there to find myself
and constantly examine myself
with no witness but the moon
and then whistle with joy,
ambling over rocks and clods of earth,
with no task but to live,
with no family but the road.”
-pablo neruda

wow! I never really got into poetry I think I might have to give him a try. I wish we could see the inside of his house it looks really cool on the outside.

Di, Yes, it is very unique.

Gina, Pablo's poetry is 'oh so yummy' check out some of his poetry. Wouldn't you just love to go inside this house? He was such a romantic writer, makes me wonder how his home was decorated. This house looks like it has so many neat nooks and crannies.

David, wouldn't it be a great place to hang out!? I need to do some more research and see if I can find pics of the interior. Would love to see the layout of the house.

Thanks for stopping in.
