i would like first to thank everyone who read the first part & an especial thanks to those who followed me & commented; there were some fine comments & i hope i replied satisfactorily. my deepest gratitude is reserved for Robert who emailed me with spacing issues & worked tirelessly to fix them through a long & sleepless night, even utilizing alcohol as a catalyst for coping & working around the problem, the posts look great, i couldn’t be more pleased with them.

now that my verbal oblations are done: this part contains more on the process of my poetry, how i get one of the blighters out of me. i am really interested in this aspect of any art: how do we do it. i know it is complicated, but if anyone has the time & energy to share with me their processes, please do, i am always interested, as i may be able to put some of them to good use in my own workings out. the link

much obliged to you all

After living in Korea for shy a decade, I find myself back in England, penalized for my turned back, awaiting a move to Exeter, where I will study an MA in English, with focus on environmental studies. These days I am reading inveterately, owing to my no longer living without the means to buy books & books & books. My reading interest lie in contemporary philosophy, ecology, ecological philosophy, object orientated ontology & speculative realism. These ideas are leaching into my poetry & essays.

  1. Well, I wouldn’t say tireless, long and sleepless. To be accurate, I said “screw this, I need a beer,” after which the world brightened considerably. Sometimes you must give in to the chaos, and when you do, a good supply of ale helps.

    1. i was hoping you’d go along with my dramatic spiel, but chaos being the beauty it is, another course is set. i used to feel the same, now that good beer is non existent in my world, i have to get my mitts on makkoli to solve those issues only alcohol solves. it is an apt substitute.
