Tonight there was a show about Walt Whitman...on PBS--excellent stuff!!
Funny, I know I've read and written about him in the past, but I never really heartfelt understood what he was talking about. I could compare and analyze, but didn't feel it till tonight. I watched most of the show, but I was exhausted--oh until 12:30--and then when I couldn't fall back asleep I thought I'd get up and read some of his poetry. I get it now--feel it and understand. Amazing.
Maybe I'll get to catch the end of the show someday.
