OK, it won’t be forever – but as you may have noticed I have not been here – I am kinda of gone, but definitely not out – think of me as over there chasing a rainbow.
The task now is to concentrate very sharply on something I have been trying to accomplish for about 13 years.
I have a business – it’s a way that I try to make dough – I know the rumor, that I am a prince living in a castle in Spain; but that is simply not true, and besides it is an understatement – I am a king looking for the country that will have me…so far…not quite.
So back to the business thingy, I am close to something that’s either very big, or is just the kind of fizzle that not even an idealistic child could appreciate.
I won’t know for awhile…
I blogged faithfully for about 11 months – and did I ever learn a whole lot – about myself, my readers and how to write even better than I thought I was writing before I started writing this blog.
The blog has been a sort of baptism.
The thing is, to do what I have wanted to do, turns out to take a lot of time – and last I checked, there really are only 24 hours in a day.
When I was active as “Poetman” I would wake up at 5:30-6:00am every morning and write and write and write – even a short piece on this blog takes me 4-6 hours to complete and the long pieces might take 10-11 hours – guess how much work I got done (the kind that pays the bills) when I did this? Not much….OH boy…and brother, and now may I add a jeesh…and a friggin frig.
I loved this fucking blog and I bled for it, and for the craft of it…and for you and your comments I yearned – and still do…
So thank you for patiently allowing me to write for you…its been a pleasure…
This thing – lets call it the “BIG ANONYMOUS” is awesome…it has many facets and a hoard of details, did I mention “Details”, that’s strange, I thought I had..
I have kept my real name off this blog, not as an affect – “Poetman” and” 1poet4man” were devices, stand-in’s for my real name – I kept my name private because the people who buy my service might not understand some of the poetry I write, or some of the daily thoughts I use to write – I stayed undercover, so as not to frighten the poetically ignorant.
In my business, in my geographical location, my real name is known – I am a minor somebody – wow, it only took 51 years to become a minor somebody…for me, privacy is a necessity.
So I will give you a morsel, not really a morsel, but a few details from the teeming swarming hoards of details.
I have 1 other blog and 2 other websites – they’re for the business thingy I was writing about just a bit ago. Guess who has to write for them, OK 3 guesses, thats right…ME. I have to write for 3 other sites…and it ain’t poetry I write, although I do bring to the task a bit of flare…if I do say so myself.
What I write has to very meticulous, and it has to be about the business thingy…and I simply can’t write poetry and write about the business I am in at the same time…it takes a different kind of head, engages way different synapses, and it’s fun – I mean I love to write – but it’s too strenuous for me to do both kinds of writing at the same time…
I have an archive of poetry in my file cabinet, maybe another 50 poems to edit and post – I will be back to do this…and I will write more…and post those poems as well, but not now…I can’t…
I wish I could personally thank each of you…for the encouragement you have given me…but I would want to do that perfectly…write a poem for each of you, maybe a song…but I just can’t, I do not have the bandwidth.
You are on my blogroll, and you are at least there, close at hand, so that I may visit you in the near future…when time comes to pass…
