Writing And The Wise

I'm still not writing poetry. I'm still not reading a great deal either, other than the material on sites listed in my links section here. And I still don't miss it. Strange. A new life, indeed. Most of the time when I'm not working I'm talking to, or texting, L. Her mind's more interesting than the minds of most authors, which are usually--when you get up really close to them--quite dull. I've learned more from her since we met than I've got from a lifetime of ploughing through the works of the Beat Generation.

Those poets will always be there - 24 hours, 7 days - right on your shelf - if you need them.

It's true, B., and I will undoubtedly go back to them someday. They have served me well in the past.
