Something amazing...

Quite serious when I say this, this guy is like poetry in motion to me. It is definitely amazing to see what the mind and body can do with such weird contraptions as the button accordion. This guys is for real, and he is not faking anything, even though it may be hard to believe....

Please enjoy and hopefully you can be as amazed by this as I am:

Getting back into writing...

Wow, so what a crazy time this has been. Who knew you could get so wrapped up into buying a house? I did, but I thought I would still be able to continue to write during the process. Well, I was wrong! Last night I got in the mood to write a poem, but that was about it. I haven't corrected anything on it at all.

This whole house business has zapped my creative juices, and I feel that I've forgotten where the aisle they're locating in is. Unfortunately, all of this work on buying a house has left me empty handed, and a few hundred in the hole. That's also a bummer on wanting to write. In the time that I have wanted to read anything, I have spent my time catching up on the two blogs I follow: Freshness Factor Five-Thousand (Jason Mraz's blog), and Open-eyed Sneeze (a friend of mine from high school). If you ever want to check them out, I highly recommend it. Freshness is very refreshing... I know a bad pun... and Open-eyed is snarky and sarcastic. I find both of them a good mix to pick me up when down.

Well, anyway, that was the update for you. And hopefully I'll be back with some new material to lay on ya!

Really sorry...

Ok, so I have been terrible about keeping this up-to-date.

My excuses: Dealing with buying a house.

If you then add some work to the mix, it has been crazy lately. I feel that I get up, go to work, come home eat, then sleep. I seem to be missing a lot of time in there. It's during the 'work' time that I do a lot of the part of "buying a house," but many times it spills into the night.

Therefore, I will not make any more promises about trying to post. I will not commit to anything at all until I can resolve all of these things going on with buying a house that I can spend the time and write. Just today, I wrote something since the last time I posted. So roughly three weeks of not being to get into the poet mindset... not to say I have some kind of intense mental place I need to go to to write... but anyway, I just have not been writing.
