Falling and Flying with Robert Bly — 3 Comments

  1. Wow, Jenny – thank you for this introduction to Bly for me! And how prescient of you in the second to last line: “Bly’s hold on the life force, or the life force’s hold on him, is undeniable.” as his life force finally gave up. It helps me see what a big presence he was!

  2. Wonderful memories, Jennie. I admire your life’s path, intersecting with so many prominent poets, philosophers and activists.

    I’ve been one of those men, beating drums, running vision-quest naked in the woods, hugging and shouting “ho,” so I appreciated that description.

    • Yes, I know many men who did the work that Bly started back in the day. I wonder what the equivalent is for us in the present?
