everything else you need to know is in this song:
Like the site and your bio. I dig the song you picked but wouldn’t you love to cut her hair and maybe brush those crazy bangs off her forehead. Love you
i’m so excited to have you all here! it’s really refreshing.
no matter what, if i saw stevie nicks in person i’d give her a big kiss hug (and then get tackled by her bodyguards most likely.)
Go for it – it would be totally worth it! Nice site. Haven’t completely explored, but, there’s time. Peace.
thank you for visiting. and if i ever see her i definitely will!
not too much up yet…but i write at least once a day, usually more, and soon i’ll start adding some archived stuff.
thanks again for the support! :)
Nice new digs, my friend. I’m not sure if I can imagine you keeping it clean… I’ll adjust. Change is good for the soul- and inevitable. No change = death.
thank you!! and thanks for dropping in! :)
where there’s a will, there’s a way. (i hope) ;)
Love the new site. I’m sure your daughter will be very proud of her Daddy. xo
:) thank you.
that’s what i’m aiming for. and for the rest of my family to have access.
hey there! thank you, glad you came by!
Since it seems everyone else knows you, I’m officially the new guy on the block.
As a friend once told me, “there are many of us in the same boat”.
It’s good to find someone from the D.C./B’more area.
I’ve been away from home without a visit for too long
i believe we’ve met before. perhaps at a meeting for those with MBPD. ;)
visit anytime. you have a friend.
Loved the new pieces you put up. You have been holding out on me all these years with your gift for writing. love ya
:) i know, on everyone…even myself. no more. i’m “out” now…no turning back…
BTW, i know you have a hidden gift too…people need it. let it shine.
I am a new follower of yours on twitter. Thought I would take a moment and check your site out. Wonderful! (love the bio song as well, though, I prefer the Smashing Pumpkins version ;) )
i’ll definitely have to check that version out. :)
what’s your handle on twitter? and welcome!
Love Stevie Nicks. Wow could look and read and listen for hours. Thanks for the inspiration, makes me want to write, paint, and remember to enjoy the precious moments we have together.
you definitely should be writing AND painting! can’t wait to see some of your new work!
I’ve been introduced to you through the comments on T2H… I think you both are amazing. Love the site.
wow! thanks so much sue, glad to have you here! welcome to my little corner of the interwebz, please come back soon! xo
How wonderful this idea that we are all closet poets, that it is dormant inside all of us. Sometimes, it takes extraordinary events to bring this out. Which is precisely what happened to me, I think. Next thing I knew I was writing short stories, poems, rants, essays sometimes all at once. that’s what I do.
I also take pictures, as you saw on Indie Ink, under the guise of Oncatography. Poetry of a different sort, I think, but so welcome to find.
I dig this. Keep writing!
thank you for coming by and leaving a piece of you! please return. you’re welcome here always.
Hello, JTW. You’ve followed me on Twitter, alhtough I have
no idea how you found me, in my tiny corner of the ether! Just
wanted to say your poem, “Minefields” is lovely. Quite apt for me
at present. Post more, please. I’ll pop back to read more after I
get my own writing deadlines (technical, but my first contract.
thanks so much for coming by! glad we connected. :)
I’m just leaving a comment so I can subscribe to your blog,
Wow- just WOW. I just came accross your site and I have
only read a few posts and I am hooked. So much of what I have read
already just sits perfectly with me. Thank you. I will be back
again and again…and when time allows- back to read thru the
thank you for the beautiful comment.
glad you found us here…hope you visit often.
love Stevie Nicks too. her voice and music are so magical.
she is one of my greatest influences. i admire her writing very much.
We’ve just linked up on twitter.. thanks for the follow.. look forward to this treasure hunt.. :)
glad we connected…thank you for visiting.
Found you by nosing around (and procrastinating on my ‘real’ work) on Indie Ink. Another blogger I read had a photo recently featured. Who says procrastination is a bad thing? Love what I’ve read so far…a lot of it really resonates with me. And my song that you’re using…yeah, that’s OK too.
hi lilly, thanks for coming by. very glad you found me via indie ink. hope you’ll visit again soon.
and thanks for being cool with the song, it’s a great one.
your words move me, in so many ways, helped me find me again,ablbe to let go, smile, cry, what a blessing to come acrooss your site
Beautiful song for a man who writes some beautiful words. Good to be connected. Eden
:) that song says much. Is probably my favorite by Stevie Nicks, and that also speaks volumes, considering the huge number of wonderful music she’s produced, both alone and as part of Fleetwood Mac.
Oddly, I’ve been here a thousand times, and never thought to stop at your bio. That doesn’t say much for my powers of observation. Lol! I’m so very glad we connected on twitter. You are so talented, and I look forward to reading more of your poetry. Thank you for sharing these bits of your soul.
I love Stevie too!
she’s the best. thank you for visiting.
i’m happy i stubbled upon your blog. nice to meet you. i’ll be beack ;-)
Hi! Thanks for following me on Twitter. Hopefully you’ll follow my blog too. I’ll follow you too and we’ll go round and round in circles.
done. circles sound fun.
have you heard of @indieink? you should submit some of your photography to be featured. http://indieink.org
Thanks for the follow on twitter. Glad I found your site. Is there anything better than Stevie Nicks? I think not.
she’s one of this century’s most talented songwriters (IMHO) and one of my biggest influences.
glad you found me.
I just discovered you via twitter and isn’t this blog a lovely surprise! Stevie is a wonderful lady and her contribution to songwriting will remain long after any landslide. It’s a good video to post JTW. Your poetry interests me. If you feel the submissions spirit move you, visit tuckmagazine.com :)
