modding - -The- Poetry Workshop
...Because life is not all a tale -- the better part of it is poetry.
I'm sorry, I simply can't do this at this time. Be moderator, that is. I've done a disgracefully bad job, and I can't pretend I'm in a space where I can do something like this. I will be, just as I'll resume writing (other than poetry, which is fairly constant) at some point. The last time I moved, after a similar space of time (8 years) it took something like 5 years before I really began writing again; however, the process was considerably complicated by the fact that I was living with a woman for an extended period who wasn't family...for the first time. I'd rather carefully avoided this before. The point of this observation is that I'm still living with the same woman, and the presence of her daughter is spotty enough that it doesn't complicate things too much...and I even have a space of my own. Which is also taking some getting used to, after eight years.

So: I am oregonnerd 13 (though there be no space in the name, naturally enough) at charter dotter net...and I need volunteers. Put it this way, my ADD is acting up again.

I think it would be nice to revive ariascorner which was really a journey of discovery for me.
I would like to moderate the community if this is ok with you

so hokay, boss,

You're it. I left myself on for the time being. Right now I'm working a lot on carving wood, sharpening blades, and writing notes on that thing which borders on philosophy, psychology and sociology which has occupied me on and off for years. I know I'm writing poetry, too, but it gets written and shelved. Bear in mind I moved after living in the same place for close to ten years, and that I've historically found moving traumatic (ironic in light of having been a military dependent, perhaps). It has to do quite literally with a sense of place. Add in too that with the rent paid (social security) there's more opportunity to spend money on gas, as in visiting--this is a rural valley, still, in many respects.

I'm going into detail because this should allow you to understand that I'm still available as a source. I'm just not currently dependable. Part of this too is stress because I need to take someone to (small claims) court and I have to start my claim against the VA,which involves PTSD and thus involves PTSD, if you take my meaning...I don't deal with stress well (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and this will involve a great deal of stress. So in some respects the light's on but no one there to answer the door. I apologize, and it's beyond my control.

Re: so hokay, boss,

Let me just say - I understand. And appreciate the fact that you will be around as a source.

Wishes for everything going well with the claims and hoping your words as you make them will colour life.
