What's going on here

I recently started this journal for no particular reason. There was a trigger in someone else moving from LJ to here and as it happens I am at a point in time where I am changing my direction a little. (I did not abandon my LJ, though I am concentrating on this place for blogging right now.)

I will be writing this blog for myself. Most or all of the entries will be public. There is no implication that I will be sparing much thought for other people's sensitivities. I am not a very regular or consistent blogger by any stretch of the imagination. Right now it's mostly some simple poetry.

As to the poetry.. "23words" is or was a community on LJ that I happened to spot when I just joined that site. I have never been a part of it, but I hijacked the concept. Six years ago I was in another change phase, which is when I decided to start writing some poetry in English; since it's not my native language it's unlikely to result in particularly beautiful results, but then that isn't the point. Likewise, I generally post new poems just because I wrote them, not because I think they are particularly good or you should necessarily read them.

Topic-wise the previous entry--by way of exception--captured rather literally (and intellectually) something that is in fact close to my heart: it is all about the ability to express. It is less about what is being expressed. It's certainly not about what should or should not be condoned. A lot of it is consciously ambiguous. Before you try to draw any conclusions: very little of the content is about me. Some is just practicing.

Some of the recent entries refer back to entries from six years ago. They are more likely to have ties to "random" older ideas and experiences than that they are necessarily together, although obviously they are all in the currently swapped-in domain somehow (in part just because of my re-reading back entries recently).

I'm interested to see what you have to say when you aren't responding to someone else.

That "23 word poem" idea looks interesting. I may give it a try.
