Tag Archives: thank you

meander through my mind.

3000 views, 150 followers, or as i prefer to call you; Readers.
i guess i should say thank you 🙂 so thank you 🙂
people blog for many reasons i’ve noticed. whether to express their wordplay or paint or fashion sense or jus to get things off their chest.
me?
i needed somewhere to compile my previously written poetry. it’s in notepads, memory sticks, floppy discs (remember them?), postit notes, envelopes, memory files etc.
a few days in and i was noticed by HelenValentina (check her out) who gave me my first award and the inclination to stick around a bit 🙂
i only ever meant to release poetry but as i searched the cupboards i started sharing thoughts in a bloggy way. i even started writing fresh poetry :).
i guess i get a bit insecure sometimes and feel the need to share whatever song i’m listening to as usually they matter to me and my history, or they explain in a way that i never could.
music and books have always been my release.
if you can’t be a rock n roll star, you may aswell be an unnoticed wordsmith i suppose.
good music is like poetry told by angels, even the rough stuff.
especially music that’s older than myself as it seems to have been around for ever.
and therefore closer to the gods.
Pink Floyd were the first band to knock me sideways. not dark side of the moon, my parents had that.
PinkFloyd in Pompeii. They played in an empty ampi-theatre, the acoustics are heavenly.
an orchestra couldn’t compete in scope and sound.
i felt like i was in space looking down on the ancients of Italy.
Echoes, a Saucerful of Secrets, Set The controls etc

Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Black Sabbath, the Doors, Iron Maiden have influenced my poetry, so have the novelists Enid Blyton, JRR Tolkien and William Blake.
The first poem i ever read was probably the Jabberwocky.
The first Haiku i ever read is a book of Haiku by Basho and another guy.
it is the only style where i am strict with myself.
it must be 5-7-5 🙂
otherwise, all my other stuff, well, it does as it wants to 🙂

Thank you a thousand times

according to my notifications, i’ve recently received my one thousandth ‘like’.
i suppose the more we write the faster the numbers grow but still, Thank You All.
i started out with the idea of just posting poetry, but, as the notepads etc are nearly all shown, i start to diversify, out of vanity of likes? perhaps.
i realise alot of my writing is dark. that’s not intentional, there’s alot of light in my life aswell but i appreciate it of the moment.
we don’t inspect our fresh skin, it’s the wounds that we keep our eyes on.
shit, what was i gonna quote?
oh yea…
“There is no dark side of the moon really, matter of fact it is all dark.” Pink Floyd.

Floyd.

right. i’m off to look for the inspiring quotes that others have missed.
you won’t believe where i find them 🙂
Thank you again 🙂

Like, don’t like
Follow, don’t follow
Comment, don’t comment.

i’ve just gained my one hundredth follower after maybe 3months, good things come to those who wait lol.
But this doesn’t mean that i get a hundred daily views, in fact i’m not sure what it means so i jus continue being grateful that i’m noticed at all. Especially among so many great thinkers. 🙂
i get on average, 5 to 50 views per day, with a couple of 85’s thrown in 🙂
i guess what i’m saying, is Thank You.
i know who reads my rubbish fairly often and i’m always grateful, you inspire me to carry on!
i’m also grateful for the fleeting viewers who may only visit once or twice, reading ends up being time consuming, even more so if you are more ‘successful’ than me. Time is valuable so for anyone to waste their time with my words is baffling 🙂

So… as a thank you, i would like to share with you, those that i follow.
i don’t follow those that are following me, we would end up going in circles 🙂
so everyone of the 40 or 50 that i do follow are important, each in their own way.
Obviously, those that i follow are listed in a column on the right hand side of this page but i would like to draw attention to those that i truly admire, for whatever reason.

Ladies first i guess…i started writing their good points but i haven’t got all day so go find out for yourselves, why i rate them so highly. 😀
without further ado and in no particular order…

The Extinction Protocol, kind of a free press where celebrities are not the news, the world news is the news.

And now for the men… same applies.
Eldin,
Harsh Reality,
the diary of David Cameron ( a perfectly political satirical parody),
