Welcome to my very first blog entry…… This will be short and sweet for now, just a slight introduction.
I want to share this because I love Emily Dickinson…..
I made this image, btw….. Digital imagery is the only other form of art I have ever practiced besides poetry. I used this portrait of Emily because I think it is beautiful. The image itself is actually much clearer than this, I just wanted to make it look a little ghostly. Someone once told me that she was 19 years old in this portrait, but I don’t know if that is true. I love Emily. If I had lived during her time I would have bugged her everyday for years until she let me into her little cocoon…. Sometimes I think that would be the most special thing to ever happen, to be friends with Emily Dickinson, I mean. But other times I think no, she would never allow a friend to dote on her by calling or treating her special. Because I don’t think she ever felt special. Talented, yes, but special or above normal, no. But she so was. And she was beautiful too but I don’t think she ever felt that way either.
I’m not a writer, really my only emotional out-takes happen in the form of poetry. Most of my other poetic friends tend to be prolific writers who can capture my attention for hours…. not me. I came here to share my poetry and to get your feedback on it. Which is actually why I asked you here. And I will be posting some of my work soon, so if you came here before it did then please come back later…..
Thank you for visiting……
