  1. Read “How I almost died in Peru” and found it a crystalized depiction of your scary experience – and how it evoked your mother, Thanks you. In one of those odd associations, while I subscribe to Poem -a – Day, intent on keeping myself reading poetry, when almost all those around me do not.

    This time the title was a shock, because an old high school friend died only weeks ago – in Peru – after becoming very ill with altitude sickness. It made me wonder if perhaps your words were an echo of her experience.

    Thank you. Best wishes with the book.

    1. Cheryl, I’m so sorry to hear about your friend! It must have been a shock to see the title. I know others who have had similar difficulties. It’s a difficult transition into those mountains. I appreciate your kind words about the poem. Thank you for reading. I’m glad you are reading poems daily. It’s an enriching practice. All my best, Trish
