    I love reading your travel stories and find your free verse style engaging. It carries the story along-flawlessly. I agree with Heather. They would make a great Journal. SuZ

    You definitely know how to tell a story! So this is that moment that you mentioned before, about those girls never seeing blonde hair before-- I love reading this, made it seem I was there and I can imagine how this memory is seared in your mind-- I like reading your stories, it gives us a different perspective on things--I bet those girls never forgot you and Micah either. I will read your other posts next time, will be back. & yes, hopefully I get to see that spectacle of nature someday...

    Facinating story. Here in the United States a friend with red hair was visiting at some Korean friends home. They were facinated and wanted to touch it, too... saying in their country it was the sign of the devil. But they were friendly and only curious.

    I'm really loving these true life stories mate. I wish I had more interesting TRUE stories to write about, but every now and then I'm inspired. You've been to a lot of places - lucky! You bring your own spice to the site with your narratives. I honestly don't care if it's poetry or not, WORDS are what is important to me.

    I don't understand how anything I write could be I'm with you there...ha...seriously though, the line that defines poetry is very vague and can be interpreted differently by different people. What makes this a poem?...I don't's really just a story...I like telling stories. Also, my name was given to me as a biblical name...and Smith is from my Irish side.

    No matter what color, style, or texture every hair on our head is numbered, the Bible says. We are all His children and are joined in ways we can't even understand.

    Another amazing write from you! I am really loving these narratives about your travels. I can relate to this one - When my sister and I were in Asia last year, we had perfect strangers taking pictures of our blonde hair. Nobody actually tried to touch it though - What an experience for your brother! You should combine these travel anecdotes into a journal - or a book of short stories.

    Another great write on your travels with your brother. The girls running their fingers through his hair must have seemed really touching and surrealistic at the same time.
