That’s a novel idea.

As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve added two pages to this blog — short stories & poetry. I always wanted to do something further with the material that I’ve written since graduating high school. I have two short stories, both under 20 pages, and I have a vast arrangement of poetry. During the coming weeks I’ll be going through my material and adding some things.

Originally I was sceptical about adding my private work online, but then I thought about it more and I think doing so would strengthen me as a writer. I would greatly appreciate some constructive criticism. Once I put some material up I will make a post to let you know that I’ve updated.

I also toyed with changing the theme of this blog today. Problem is, I really enjoy the neat, well put together blog style –small font, nothing too bold, and at least 2 available columns for my twitter feed, archives and pages. I changed the theme 3 times tonight. I came back to Manifest, it’s simply the best. One thing I dislike though, I would really love to be able to change the font color on the links. You know, at the bottom the font is a sandy color – which is nice – but I want something a little more vibrant. I guess I’ll have to fold and buy some custom upgrades. It’s about time I bought the domain, too.

Well I think that’s all from me tonight. I’m having a good time at work, being given more responsibilities/challenges, it’s been fun so far.

An archived photo that I came across, this is my Aunt Loretta and my Grandmother, Doris. One of my favourite photos.

the mermaid’s eulogy

finding myself in the water

she says

let’s go home

in this black silence

off i go

in this black silence

off i go

finding myself in the water

tangled in sea weed cries

these things take time

they will not tie me down

she says

let’s go home

finding myself in the water

off i go

let’s go home
