Watch out, Richmond! Your southern entrenched plantation owner/slave rebellion bullshit mentality will not blot out or put down the excitement of new (and not so new ventures)

People get so attached in this town, they do something once, sometimes even half-assed, but then, oh then- it becomes their property in perpetuity and God help the poor schlub who dares to make a step a little farther on the path-

There are two bugaboos right now- a place and a person- oddly enough, not connected (though actually they probably are somewhere back in time).

All will be decided soon, on both counts. And I will still be doing all that I do- writing, reading, and promoting poetry. I suppose that's my mission statement- that and to encourage participants in all manner of involvement in the written arts, but hey!

Anyway- I will hold on and see what transpires- there are good folks out there working hard that I can give encouragment to (and you know who you are).

maybe it's the position of the planets- a lot of shit seems to be coming down all over right now-

What baffles me most is that the artists who know diddly squat about business talk out of turn and have no idea that they have no idea what they're talking about... 'I see stupid people... only they don't know they're stupid!'

It's great to be a part of this poetry renaissance here in Richmond. I think if the right moves are made, we can perpetuate (perhaps even grow?) the movement. The youth is the key. Now, where in the world could that happen...?

apparently someone thought this was about THEM and tried to take over the whole blog

it's about someone who does not even use a computer, ass-whomever-you are.

but I guess paranoia runs deep
