March 3, 2009  – The Star Ledger of Newark, NJ


With the snow today, columnist, Mark Di Ionno, quoted extensively from my poem, Shoveling Snow on Wii.  His column reflected the feelings in my work.

His column can be read on-line:

A Dad Laments a Bygone Boyhood Snow Day Tradition: Hard Work.

Mr. Di Ionno also quoted me writing:

“Brown said the poem isn’t about his family, but ‘my observations about the emphasis on recreation today. We try to make things better for our kids, and we think what’s best for them is more free time and more recreation, and less work. In the long run, work is what provides character and a sense of self-worth through accomplishment.’ ”

A little taste of coincidence on a snowy day.
