but the sun's out

yes there's snow on the ground. yes my printer's being a pain. yes my stats here are down. yes the response to my first Facebook poem is minimal. yes the response to Making Circles was even worse.

but I've lived a long time & been thru much harder periods. minor aggravations are part of it all. I try to scream & get them out of the way. because I've had a remarkable life. & I've survivd one of the most difficult years of my life. & I'm as happy as an old fart can be.

as Yvonne DeCarlo sang many years ago "I'm Still Here." but the important part is I'm producing some of my best work. & I can't wait to see what the next hour brings.

me too. i think there should be a new school of poetics:

HARD LIFE / HAPPINESS PREVAILS / ANYWAY SCHOOL OF WRITING(S)

Yes.

You're a great guy! You're the most famous & talented person I know! If you disappeared from the Internet I'd be lost.

Richard -- we both have a great deal for which to be thankful.

Bill -- you say the sweetest things. the internet provides me with the biggest audience I've ever had. I plan no disappearance.
