Extra notes: A good week for the blog. Only one day this week dropped below the average in terms of pageviews. (I think; I'll look later if so motivated.) Several jumped into the mid-sixties. Nice.

The only number that concerns me is the daily average, which right now is forty-two. I recalibrate that number with the turn of each season. The hope is that it will go up, not down.

I'm approaching the finish of the writing of the fifth Fractalverse. Some damn good verse in it, if I may be so bold. Lots of anger and protest. Nice nature/spiritual poetry.

Writing a poem for me is like taking the barometric pressure of your soul at any given moment and jotting down the result. Instead of numbers you get the weather of your being, which may not be the same everywhere. In trying to decipher the moment you run into the limits of language and understanding, and leave reason, many times, behind.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday.
