I believe in being prepared for any given situation. It isn't because I'm a pessimistic person; I think it is just good common sense. Hence, I've entitled my blog "Even Nothing is Something."

This covers my butt in any event. On any given day I can feel great exaltation that I have done something grand. I can scribble fiercely when my thoughts are leaping across the meadows of my mind like a happy little colt in the month of May, or my mind and writing can be as dry and arid, as cold and without life, as the Gobi desert - because even Nothing is Something.

I want to thank all of my fellow artists who work through other means and forms and who sell their work on the wonderful artist's site "Etsy," a place to buy and sell all things handmade, along with vintage items and supplies for their craft. They are a great group of people.

Those who have links to their site on my blog represent only a few of those whom I wish to include. Just click on one of those links and join the Etsy community. It is free. They are a great group of artists who have relieved me of my money in the most delightful of ways. If it weren't for their encouragement, I would have never shared my work through this blog.

Thank you my darling friends!

Enjoy my blog - The Poet or Not - More or Less

Clarification and another Apology to Caryn

I promised to include here the poem that shares the name of my book manuscript, THE POET: A RIVER TO THE SEA. You will find a poem here entitled "River to the Sea." This is NOT the piece of work that will preface my book. It is a much happier poem than "River to the Sea." I promise. I also vow to do more Haiku - that is always a cheery bit of writing.

  1. hey again. my daughter suggested I go to your blog so I could see your poetry. That way I wouldn't have to bother you with printing out pages, etc.That is how I came to post the comment! To that end, and others, we decided to purchase a laptop to take on the road. We ended up with a real beaut, a Toshiba, from Best Buy,$210.00 with 6 mos of tech support, 6 mos of anti-virus, free modem. 2 year contract with Verizon is the catch! I've already made a case/cover for it with geisha fabric. I need to get some batting to make a cushioned cover, though. Did you get my other comment? Poetry is great, and I love that I can just log on anytime and get a fix. Best to you on this difficult day. I think it's nice that Bruce still cares enough to do stuff with you and for you, though, I guess some couples don't even get that for what it's worth. I must tell you I no longer believe in marriage. I simply do not believe that humans are programmed to mate for life.We change and grow at different rates, we are not static.My friend at the storage place, Henry G. is married for the third time. I think he might regret this, because I got the feeling that he might like me as more than a friend but.....what if someone better comes along and you are stuck? We could explore this further some other time if you wish. What does Joe have to say? I would be interested to know. I think we need to stop punishing ourselves for not being able to fit into a box that society has forced on us.
