up to page 15

Hi everyone!

I’m still in “maintenance mode” (see previous post). I just made it up to page 15 of 24 pages of posts that are listed in the dashboard of this blog.

I’m revising poems, reclassifying poems, pronouncing poems fine as they are, deleting poems I consider beyond repair, and fixing post layouts that went awry when I changed this blog’s template. It’s enjoyable and satisfying work, though my lack of new posts has flattened my readership stats. Oh well, at the moment it’s feeling more important to me to revisit, revise, and renew old material than to keep posting ahead.

I wish each and every one of you a prosperous and fulfilling 2015.

maintenance mode

Hello and thank you for visiting this blog. I appreciate you reading, visiting, and commenting!

Because of my recent redesign of this blog and the two others I own, Heart of Life Music and Heart of Life Alchemy, I have literally hundreds of posts to check, to ensure that each one displays the way I want it to, given the new templates. (A word of advice to new bloggers: choose your template carefully. : )

In addition, as I check through my posts at this blog and others, I find plenty of writing I want to revise. Sometimes I face the decision of whether or not to trash a particular poem or post.

I’m also behind on thanking my new followers, and keeping up with the blogs I follow.

The year 2014 is almost over. I decided yesterday that now is the time to get all the above “maintenance” jobs taken care of, so that I can enter 2015 ready to receive and share fresh inspiration. I plan to begin posting poetry again sometime near the transition between 2014 and 2015.

In the meantime, I can think of no better way to end this post than to encourage you to educate yourself about one of the great global challenges we face at this time: climate engineering.  You can find out more at www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

even here, where there’s no noise
weight has its own sound

I love real weather—it’s looks, its feels, it’s smells. I am hopeful that we can preserve real weather on our planet, which is why I invite you to visit www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

Because of my concern over geoengineering, I sound an “all creatures alert” at this blog almost daily. If you are interested in knowing what’s concerning me, please visit www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

so many weeks to winter solstice
a few more weeks, and the days
will start to stretch again
like cats do after they nap

I won’t feel

I’ve barely gotten started
and the dark is back again

My care for people, animals, and plants compels me to invite you daily to visit this site: www.geoengineeringwatch.org. At Geoengineering Watch, you can educate yourself about the impact on all our lives of solar radiation management programs.
