I read once that there was a Russian who found it very hard to say to his friends and colleagues
the simple words: I AM A POET and so much so that when he uttered those endearing words
he was battered to death with rejection as people would not accept his true words.
Whether or not it is a myth or is a true story I dont know but it has played on my mind
recently and it is necessary to say words like these even though the poet gets a "put dowd"
as it seems it is not acceptable to say it as its better to say: I have a Job!
Well, when I spoke with the Professor he was of the same mind as he was on previous occasions and although he likes to hear people say: I am a Poet he prefers now that he is a Professor to hear people say; I have a Job.
The Professor continued to advise and said: this has been going on for 2O years and I feel like
giving up as we are never going to achieve our objectives here where I am and there where you are! It
was necessary to agree as 2O years is to much time to waste so the conclusion is that we didnt
waste 2O years but reached out to America who have published our play after 1O years:
so I then can say to the Professor that we did find a solution to:
A our statements and
b: our conclusions
so I suppose we still bask in the success of publication in America as it has been such a hard job to get published in play format and so its : Thanks! America from the Poet and the Professor : Our Hard Work Pays UP even when least expected and we endeavour to take success as a norm rather than a once in a lifetime achievement for both of us.
