Thirty-one years ago this past July twenty-third
two girls, aged fourteen and fifteen, entered
into the world of a story you've never heard...

...because they swallowed the names
like a Coke on a hot summer day...

...because I swallowed everything,
except for the one thing I gave away...

...because all they wanted was some fun
since that is supposedly what girls just say...they...

...as Cyndi belted out in that one...
...and Sheryl while drinkin' beer on Tuesday...
a decade later.

Tripping over ellipses,
still tangled in parentheticals
(like the fact 1988 is a halfway point).

The twenty-ninth of May
was just another day
as we were on our way...to say...hey...
three decades away.

...but they...
returned to my thoughts in a way
that could not anymore be held at bay...

(and the fact 1998 saw a daughter join...this fray)

I wanna be the one to walk in the sun
Time (after time) melts, whiling the hours, the days...
I'm sure it's Bill or Billy or Mack or Buddy
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard.

Back when ProsePetals was first conceived online (since she existed WELL before the internet), deleting journal entries (in dAt other place) was a common occurrence. Except I never *really* deleted most of them. I simply saved them and filed them away. Many of them would later be revised and shared in my personal blog...and in a few cases, in the WSE blog.

Over in my personal blog, there are 976 entries dating back to August 21, 2009. In nine years, I've written nearly 1,000 blog entries (probably more, because there were some I completely deleted from the blog itself).

Presently there are only 20 entries publicly visible, with the remaining ~950 or so archived for possible revision.

The most recent entry is from this past weekend, and is an entry that started as a word-vomit entry in dA (to get the thoughts out of my head) - initially for the purpose of revision for the WSE blog. There is plenty of "stuff" in this entry that is VERY relevant to sex education...but first, I had to get the ProsePetals thoughts out.

This writing will eventually be reviewed and the sex ed content extracted for revision to WSE. For now, I'm sharing it here, since it is pure Prosey. The thoughts aren't directed at any particular individual/s...though many people surfaced in my thoughts as I was writing.

It occurs to me that "daughter" and "laughter" should rhyme...were it not for the stupidity of English language conventions & pronunciations. Except..."dafter" isn't quite a compliment.
I started to write a full journal entry about Game of Thrones and American politics.

I decided to...not. I saved all the words I started to write here to be rewritten properly for a blog entry. Not because I wish to avoid sharing it here, but because sharing it here would (guaranteed) be misinterpreted by folks who have a ridiculous tendency of turning things that have nothing to do with them into a mirror.

I dislike narcissists tremendously, and I won't feed them. I'll simply wish them well...far, far away from me...as I always have.

Just a few thoughts...
Bullet; Green A couple of months ago, I had my 14th dAnninversary. That's weird. Doesn't seem possible it's been that long. Ohm... Ohm... 

Bullet; Green dA is celebrating its 18th birthday. That's even weirder. To think YoungestDeviant is only about two and a half years older than this place is just wild; and looking at the old art by ManiacOnAisleThree is more than slightly surreal, given where he's at in life now. Shocked 

Bullet; Green  It's tempting to put together a chapbook -- been thinkin' about it for such a long time, but that would also mean digging through my archives here. Most writers with any sense of pride at all have trouble delving through older writings. Yes, it's a practice of seeing how far you've come...but then you realize you published that shit at one point...and here in dA, that means kinda publicly. So...the idea is tempting, but in practice, it's a struggle without also committing to finally polishing those old stones. (Some o'yall might even remember that reference.) :bump:

Bullet; Green As part of the :above: above :above: practice and review and contemplation, alongside engaging in something akin to turning into a bit of a Reform Luddite, things like Art as Therapy feels like melting into the Slow Movement...sort of. For someone like me, whose mind -in the past- never slowed down, the act of deliberately slowing down (even with the help of medication) is rife with internal conflict. Couple that with quitting smoking cigarettes?! frustrated 

Bullet; Green So...I've been borrowing rwirtz's old :camera: from time to time (very infrequently, since I'm not a photographer), as well as taking more pictures with my cell, so as to practice actual drawing. :jawdrop: These things are therapeutic, though. If and when I create something even slightly worthy of requesting critique, I'll post here. That was what Shades of Blue & Purpose was actually about. It's simply a still shot of something I'm trying my hand at drawing. So far...my attempts have been something that my 9-yr-old could draw far better. :shrug:

That's pretty much all for the moment.
