i’ve seen this light before

I have lately taken to pondering why I can’t seem to find anything to put on here. I think it’s because this page has become a haven of updates, and I never wanted this online journal to become nothing but updates.

But if I don’t write updates, then not only will you not really know what’s going on in our lives, I won’t really have anything to write, either.

So I avoid writing things that sound like the morning news, and in doing so am left with nothing but to show you what I’ve been reading, watching, listening to lately, etc.

I just need to do more looking around, I think. More looking out windows.

Last night, for the first time in what feels like forever I felt in my mind the sparks of a poem being birthed, and it was a good feeling. I have not written much in the way of poetry since my creative writing class my junior year at college. I think my poetic fervor was squashed sometime during that semester.

If I can find the time during the next two days, I will regale you all with the story of the Never-Ending Extended Remix of Clair de Lune that an entire wedding audience was subjected to last week, and how that particular version of the song managed to be composed.

  1. I agree about this being more than just updates. Jarboes think a lot. I would like to see us put on some questions, poems, etc. get some dialog going. Maybe we also have a lot of fear. We play it too safe. What do you think about that?

  2. Mine was nothing but excuses for a while… hope to do better now that summer started, though. And aren’t updates better than nothing?
    I love the picture too!

  3. I, for one, enjoy the updates.  Hit’s nice ta know that som’pin plain in’a my life,
    ain’t so plain when hit’s someone elses.  Kinda a lettle wender in’ta your’alls days, ya know?
    Keeps me from be’in so lonely her’in tha holl’er.

  4. I understand, Eb, but for me it’s kind of like the writing equivalent of drawing stick figures when I should be painting landscapes. Know what I mean?I’m sure Miz Margie Mae understands, you can ask her.
