|"I promise not to be clingy or ruin it with romance
And I’m no Catherine Deneuve so you’d be disappointed anyway
I just want some shared breaths, a bit of deep peace.
Just two wayfarers striding through Champs-Elysee." -- Well, I'm no Gregory Peck, so... you have a deal, wayfarer. How wonderful you are with the pen. I continue to be in awe of you. -- Jeff Mason

|Beyond the trivia laden plateau of modern pseudo social mantras is a place where emotions from the heart may be shared with honesty and dignity. In "Truffles" you relate to that down to earth bastion. Pretense is banned at the entrance gate. There, a smile is a smile. An I love you is, an I love you. Hold my hand and we shall journey to that place and savor the milk and honey of life. I love your poem Christine. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|OH, CHRISTINE...YOU HAVE SUBJECTED ONE OF THE 'BLESSINGS' OF POETRY...IT EXPOSES THE WRITER. AND WHAT IS MORE GENUINE FROM A POET...THAN BEING ABLE TO EXPRESS ONES SELF TO THE FULLEST...TO THE ADMIRATION AND APPRECIATION OF OTHERS? AH...! I LOVE THE EXPRESSION - 'TRUFFLEING'...ITS INTENSE, PROBING, DEEP, PAINFUL, HAPPY, SAD AND SO FORTH AND SO ON, BUT IT IS ALWAYS...ALWAYS...BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE YOU, CHRISTINE...PLEASE, NEVER STOP BEING YOU. BUT THEN...HOW COULD YOU?! THEN YOU COULDN'T WRITE! AND THAT WOULD BE A GREAT LOST FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE HAD THE BLESSING OF SHARING YOUR WONDERFUL GIFT. GOD BLESS YOU. KEEP THE FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS|

|so much honesty and humility in this piece, very touching and real. you're not pathetic however, i would have to argue that point with you. i think you express the desire of most to cast aside wordly distractions and pettiness, in order to be free from the bondage of self.|
|Reviewed by Gene Williamson
|Too open? No. Pathetic? No. Please know that here at the Den
you are loved for the You of You and admired for the highly
creative music that flows from your pen, as demonstrated so
beautifully in Truffles. My old heart soars on the thought
of striding through the Champs-Elysee with you. -gene.

|Ah, Christine, we all have that feeling of reaching out to others through our poetry. Speaking for me, you most definitely can have your reserved style and I understand what that means and I feel everyone else does also. This is a good, instructive and beautiful poem.|
