I've just paid $10 for "The Cybernetic Sorcerers" by YsabetWordsmith -- you can get yours at The Wordsmith's Forge - Unsold Poetry from the October 2-3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl. Ysabet is my favorite web poet, by far. Check out her Serial Poetry page and you'll get some idea of why.
So... a pretty good day. Ok, a good day -- it doesn't need the qualifier. It started with a Hawaiian word: 'ohana, which means "family in an extended sense of the term including blood-related, adoptive or intentional." I like it. Thanks, Callie!
I took a walk, going West on McClellan for a change, which quickly took me into the quiet residential area of Monta Vista. It's quiet enough that I'll be able to make phone calls (if I can ever get back into that habit).
I work with cool people. $BOSS sent me a link in email with the subject "best WolframAlpha answer ever".
And best of all, I put in this prompt on ysabetwordsmith's poetry fishbowl, and got the poem "Afterlove". Ame liked it, too. I think that's my first-ever poetry prompt (unless I'm just being a forgetful old bear), so it's kinda special.
A few other links in the( raw notes )
Now that she's made the public announcement, I can point you at my dear friend pocketnaomi's shiny new website, PocketPoems.net. As
webmaster , any gaffes in the layout or
HTML coding are mine, as is any delay in getting it from a
hastily-thrown-up single page to an intricate and beautiful site more
worthy of her poetic talents.
Go and buy yourself or someone you love a poem. You'll be glad you did.
