I am here looking for Bill Holm because I heard him being interviewed on NPR in Miami this morning not knowing he had recently passed away. |He has left a lasting impression on me now. Thank you.

I, too, was introduced to Bill today on NPR while I was driving. I was so intrigued by what he had to say that I wrote down this web address because I wanted to check out his trips to Iceland. I wanted to do this so much that I went to this website as oon as I got back home. I was dumbfounded and saddened to learn of his passing. I felt he was a soul-mate which is quite inexplicable, really..............

I, too, heard Bill in a wonderful, rambling interview with Rick Steves on NPR. Read "The Windows of Brimnes" months ago, and it touched me deeply. Such a sane, humane, exemplary man of great passions and strong opinions, beautifully expressed. My condolences to all who were close to Bill. I will assuredly share his writing far and wide.

I, like the previous writers, heard the NPR interview with Bill Holm. I had never heard of him, but loved what he said and so I too, as soon as I got home, went to the website. I was ready, on the spot, to sign up for whatever he taught over there in that beautiful windswept land and was shocked to read the news of his passing. My daughter spent her junior year of high school in Iceland as an exchange student and I visited her there. This was many years ago and I have always wanted to return. I felt a strange connection to that land. During that short interview I also learned something about myself. I have always loved the mountains, but as I get older I crave wide open spaces. Bill talked about the sparse landscape where he lived and how it helped to clear his mind. It made me want even more to go back. How sad to lose such a wonderful man so soon and my heart goes out to his family and friends. I am truly sorry that I never got to meet him. Now I will have to make his acquaintance through his writing .

I was driving through Central Florida listening to the interview with Mr. Holm. I was so impressed I wrote down Mr. Holm's name with the intention of looking for his website and possibly of a taking a trip to Iceland with him for a writing workshop. I am terribly saddened to learn of his passing. My deepest sympathies to his family. We have lost a great man and powerful man.

Just discovered Bill's poetry on the internet today,10/5/12. It touches me deeply. His poetry is a monument of his too short life!
