Seven Years

As of this week I've been writing a blog for seven years. I've never had much traffic & the blog is partly just a place for me to put stuff or jot down notes or lay down political rants that have to go somewhere or my head would explode. I value my few readers as wonderful rarities, like orchids or ancient coins. And as I say every year about this time, I really should write more about poetry. It's the one thing I actually know something about.

  1. Shelley kinda says it, Joe. You and Mark have always been there for us and our lives have been enriched and greatly influenced by your writing over these brief seven years (coincidentally, I find myself blogging Chomsky writing Schlesinger circa 1967). Yes, our readers might be rarities, orchids or ancient coins, but our writers mean even more — they’re unique. Many thanks for still being here; in the very best way.
