what does celebration soup look like?
it's fresh.
it bubbles, delicately.
it warms the heart,
cools the mind,
feeds the spirit.

thank you cloudpeeps.
for every-thing-you-are.
the world is better
for your unique
beauty.

be well.

yes.
i'm thinking ahead.
past the street gatherings,
past the convening mid-december,
past the minimize contact
and
the oh-yes-you-wills.

yes.
i'm thankful.
here among the clouds
wordsmiths gather.
sifting, sorting, adventuring, exploring.
pulling old splinters
and
stretching atrophies away.

yes.
i appreciate WF.

uncovering treasures
with each and every visit,
with each and every image,
with each and every syllable.

this year
i'm trying something new,
and i invite you to consider
whether
it might work for you.

i'll not directly commission a writer
to write a specific piece
or
purchase the rights to an awesome creation.

this year
i will donate toward subscription
for content creators
that speak and spark.

giftWF11152020sn.jpg

fom here
i can select custom
and
indicate an amount gifted to a writer.
$25 usd for a year
$3 usd for a month
and steps in between.

WF members can go here.

i use this one,
viewable to the public.
no paypal for me, thanks.

2020 is still a heavy time.
i hope you find something
extra special
just
because you are you.

be well, please.

yes.
i appreciate WF.

brick and mortar
has it's place.
i'd suppose.

BUT

here amongst the clouds:
any-every coalesces,
disperses,
warms and cools,
re-tools
becoming.

listening
is
symphonic.

voices.
sounds exploring sounds,
and
whats.

plethora of pauses,
subtle causes,
effect
and
affect.

i celebrate you!

I got banned from writingforums.org as well. It said for violating rules and it won't even allow me to contact anyone to find out what rule, or rules I violated.

Sometimes I think we are the same 1000 people chasing around the web.

I got kind of executed in my last virtual home. Vaguely I recall awaking one morning, and maybe one of the aspiring moderator gentlemen had posted a story for crit? He'd been a green beret the last 50 years, I can't recall exactly, and posted a story about his life as a girl. I dunno, it's a blurr. Anyway underneath, written in my name, something like 'gurgle, boobs boobs tits tits tits.' Maybe an elbow had slipped upon my tumbler? To this day I can't explain. That was the beginning of my first life sentence.

The sci-fi forum? They zapped me swiftly. I said I don't like sci-fi, didn't like the Lord of the biscuit or any of it, the most boring rot your Star Wars. I informed them all how I was the last remaining confederate from 1977 on behalf of the Velvet Underground seeking our retribution. A speech, and then I was murdered. I don't exist on there any longer.

The cheap forum are a good lot. There's only about six individuals remaining. The boss took the original forum & made it a pay site on your 'journey to publishing.' I was right at the back of the mob crying 'fakk offf, fakkk off...' But like I said the survivors are still out DELETED SECTION AS I AM INVITING THEM ALL ON TO WF.COM, MY ENGLISH PALS I still pop my, I still go in there occasionally.

...

Oh, oh, this place. Of course I have died and gone to heaven. Really really lovely people on here. I propose it is from here we assault the literary journals, blindside professors, come in from the underbelly so that by 2030 they shall write 'Today the Home of Liturature dwells on-line at Writingforum.com.' That'd be a journey. Y'know as the great man said 'Hang the dj, he says nothing to me about my life.' I strive so hard to dwell among but I'm beginning to think that is not the game. Stop, stop dribbling, peasant..

I was right at the back of the mob crying 'fakk offf, fakkk off...' But like I said the survivors are still out there but the new site is dominated by a former mercenary. He writes stories about his 'fistful of African heads in my hand,' and you know he's so powerful, you can't really say to him 'I think mercenary murdering is really ghastly so when are you returning to Mozambique?' I still pop my, I still go in there occasionally.

some times.
