I feel the need to offer some clarification on some commments I made in my last entry.

Having reread the entry in question, I realizze that I came off much more morose and whiny than I ever intended. My writings were meant as more of a observation and lament to the fact that so much of my quality work comes from a dark and unhappy place.

I do realize of course that I can and will write about more light hearted experiences, including moments of sheer joy and contentment.

The outpouring of advice and encouragement that I have recieved in response has been astounding. This is truly a group of caring and supportive writers quick to come to the aid of one of their own. My hats off to all of you, that family atmospere is what has kept me here for so long.

There's no need to fret, I have every intention of channeling the "new muse" that Malthis mentioned and putting out a somewhat different type of poetry int he future.

Thanks again everyone.


Smile if you're stupid,
laugh if you understand.

looking forward
To seeing what you'll come up with Bart. Your past two or three pieces have definately bowled me over (not to say most of yours don't)! Glad to hear maybe you'll be widening your scope, I think that's a valuable thing for every poet to do from time to time. Take care. =D

As promised in my inconsideration (should that be a word), I have avoided blogs, but a couple certainly deserve attention, yours included.*grin*

There is something to discuss here. I retrieve a lot of what I write from those dark places. And, I must admit, they are very dark. Is that bad thing? I'm certainly glad you've found a new muse through which to channel a more joyful experience. It's an interesting thing that I've wondered about many times, Bart, this changing of muses. I'm not exactly sure if I believe *grin*.(I believe that you can do it, of course, it's just a general disbelief). I'm glad though, happy for you. Good luck.
