Another Poem…

October 30, 2012

You can go here to see the poem I wrote today.

An October Poem

Every year it “bothers” me less. No…I don’t think that is the right way to put it. It is just that I am less aware of it…or I am aware of it later in the year. I don’t think about it as soon. But once I am aware of it, it does bother me.

I think, too, that it bothers me inside. I “feel” it on the outside as a kind of fog and struggle to concentrate, but I oftentimes don’t connect what I am struggling with to the time of year until later. I “think” it is not bothering me as much when, in reality, I think it is.

I work hard to push things aside so that I can do life…and that is fine. There is a time and place for that. But there is also a time and place for recognizing what is and working with (and through) that.

So, here you have it. Writing the poem was good. It was therapeutic. It was needed. I have GOT to work on the office for a hide away.

My life is still a bit too full. I am still working on it…figuring out my priorities. Things will come together, but I need to give myself some breathing room…especially during this time of year. It is OK to fall apart. It is OK to not be able to do all I would “normally” do…or that I want to do. It is time to be extra good to myself.


A Poll For You Regarding My Poetry…

March 31, 2011

I have never done a poll before. I hope this turns out alright! My poetry blog can be here.



Formatting Poetry…

March 31, 2011

I wrote to WordPress Support about formatting poetry. A really nice guy named Jose got right back to me! He gave me this link for getting those alternating indenting lines. Here is the link he gave me: Writing and Formatting Poetry

The poetry formatting page tells me to use the “Preformatted” setting on the drop down menu. I was able to get it to work, but I really need to play around with it a bit more to see what all it can do.

Then I asked him about font styles. He sent me these two links to explore with: Typetester and Font Size and Color. Typetester shows what fonts look like. It will even give you CSS coding…which, of course…does me NO good since I am clueless when it comes to CSS.

Font Size and Color works with HTML and the options already present on our editor. That is a bit more workable. However, don’t expect anything fancy over on the poetry page just yet. So far, my experience with font style is that I have to add HTML for every single paragraph! And how much do you want to bet it will be every single line if I indent? Yikes! (Actually…I have no idea. Perhaps, it WILL be easier. I sure hope so!

I will have to play and experiment…when I have time…something which is in limited supply right now.


More Poetry and Art Up…

January 9, 2011

I have been adding more and more art pieces here: A Survivors Healing Art.

Then I decided to put up a couple more poems, too, here: A Survivors Poetry I have been neglecting my poetry blog, but would like to get some more poems up. I have so many of them.


I Have Decided…

August 15, 2010

I am thinking of going through my art blog and putting my art pieces in date order. That means that I will be inserting some of them. When I do, though, I will post here with the links so that people can find the new ones. Actually, what I will probably do is post them in the current and then change the posting date to get them in order. I don’t know. Do I sound confused? *laughing*

Anyway, I put up another piece of art and some poems. 1730 — Betrayed

As I Lay Me Down to Sleep

For Me…For Him

Who Gets Me Through?

I wonder of I should put my poems in date order? Any thoughts?


More Poetry…

August 6, 2010

I put up a couple more poems on my poetry blog: A Survivor’s Poetry. You can also find the link in the right hand sidebar. I will try to put up more as I can. My main focus right now, though, is working on my art webinar presentation.


About the theme…and other stuff…

July 6, 2010

OK…the other theme was driving me nuts. I could not get the background light enough without washing out some of the text…and I could not adjust the color of the text. So…I am trying this one out for a while. It is called “Neat”. I don’t really have time to mess with themes any more right now.

On other lines of thought…I started a poetry blog. It has a real original title…NOT! But at least I am pretty consistent! A Survivor’s Poetry. You can either click on the link here or you can find the link at the top of the RSS blog links in the right hand column. I can appreciate that there are some who might only want to read poetry…or only look at art…so, I made a blog for each.

My computer goes back soon. I don’t really like it, but I also don’t like the idea that I might not be to get it turned on one of these days. *sigh* I don’t know if they will fix it or not. One guy told me they will send a check for sure. Another guy said the first guy had no right to say that…that they might be able to fix it…or send an entirely different PC. I don’t mind fixing…but I am not thrilled with a different PC unless it is the same kind or better.

I am tired. I am grieving. This grieving has to do with my ex. Not that I am grieving him…but as I see his family on FB interacting with my first marriage sons…well…I am just so aware of losing not just a spouse…but a whole family. I know it had to be…in my head. But in my heart…it is another story. There is a part of me who wants to say “hello”, but I was so vilified and lied about that I don’t really dare. I have regained some connections…partially…but not all…which is actually probably a good thing.

I am continuing to work on getting my art into jpeg format. The motivation is the Webinar I am doing in August. But this is also good for me…to have all my pieces sorted through and categorized and numbered. The Webinar is being done by Survivorship. I will put a link in the sidebar. The Webinars are being done as a community service and also to raise funds for ongoing Survivorship services.

As for my parents…still no word. Such is life.
