My last post was on December 20th, 2013 and from this far off date, the best I can say is, “My how the time has passed!”
I hope you have been well.
There are the usual excuses: I was hit, and then hit again, and then pummeled twice more with the usual winter aches, colds and infections. An evening class…busy work schedule…a skiing vacation…blah, blah, blah…and, well, while I always meant to do a post every night, I just never got to it, despite having poems in the works.
The most important thing I have been up to is developing a new site, the Book of Bokeh, which will be dedicated to my photography. I hope to launch it properly within the next week. (If you are interested in what ‘bokeh’ means, check out the About page on the new site.) I hope you will take the opportunity to visit it then.
What is worse than not posting any poetry—and yes I missed doing so damnably— is that I know I have also managed to fail in replying to several messages, an abominable thing to do. To those of you who I have insulted ’til now, I’ll get to them as soon as I can, I promise.
Benjamin Franklin said, “Never ruin a good apology with excuses.” Well, that is exactly what I have done, but there you are. Thank you for putting up with them and I sincerely and humbly appreciate your visiting the Book of Pain.
I promise, poetry, as well as photography, soon.
