Carl Kopman Featured Monday, 4/21

4/21 Carl Kopman 

Treading on a rock path
I have not much to say.
That these children want
to hold my hand
is enough.

Letting words
age in cautious steps
is enough.

Carl Kopman is a cabdriver from Brooklyn, New York, a salmon fisherman from the Hippie Years in Mendocino, California,  a school teacher living in Berkeley, and a writer. He spends his time enjoying his family, playing pool, restoring a 600 year old monastery in Nepal, and, with his wife, making habitable a small house on a wild river in San Miguel, Panama.

    After her 29 yrs (My wife) now found your letter of sponsorship and confirms as sponsor for her schooling.

    I googled out to find Carl and Simon Kopman which led me here. Would be very nice to hear back from both of you. :-)
