greetings. on the small chance you haven’t guessed by looking here, this blog is no longer actively in service. it served well in its time (and really I mean you, the many of you who participated with me in a variety of writing communities).
thank you. no interest in the story of why or what changed to put this blog to sleep. so it is. however nothing new will be posted here.
what’s here? most of what was written 2009 – 2014. some good (hard for me to say), some not much. thought of editing out my notion of “lesser” poems, but I’ll let that go. there’s some merit in transparency. and writing is a process, not a single result. and the process paints something of the community engagement, which is always a part of what poems mean.
do I still write poems? yep. but the process is different. I am different. I am seven hundred miles from where I used to be. judgment is pointless, but it is different being here. I produce poems less often. I am less willing to write for the sake of craft. genuine honesty of self expression has more of my attention, whether realized so well or not.
there is a new poetry blog. words were poems first you’re welcome to visit.
