In the beginning . . .
October 9, 2015
Well, it is the beginning of this blog-writing enterprise. As in many of my beginnings, I am not quite sure what I am doing, much less why I am doing it. So bear with me, Dear Reader, and we’ll see where you and I go.
Fran Leibowitz, I think it was, once wrote that it was cruel to detain a fleeting thought (or words to that effect). As I remember it, she was writing about poets, blogs not having been invented yet back in the 80’s. I do try to avoid the slight and ephemeral in my poetry, and I think I mostly succeed. I think the dictum will prove equally important here.
