Not too much to say, here. I’m a reader. I’m a writer and a neophyte photographer. My first word was “book”: rather appropriate in my case. I’ve been writing for as long as I can recall. Although poetry is not my “natural” media; largely as a result of RB, I’ve come to trust my instincts. This is truly an amazing site. I’d like to thank everyone who devotes their time to making this such a superlative site.
Finally, thanks to everyone whose comments have made my work better and to those who will in the future.

Cheers,
Rusty, aka, Blanchot

The predicate of this conjunction may be accounted for by the fact that I’m close to being speechless. / The first side of it arises out of the following: This photo is entitled, Help Me Out: My Very First Macro / I received a comment, expecting that perhaps someone had a more or less polished gem to share with me, so as to help me in perfecting my technique on macro shots. Yet, imagine my …

A Justification of Divorce: Do It for the Kids

I *know, 4,000+ words? You must be out of your mind. Yet, this is a piece of pure conviction. I don’t expect all that many readers to make it through this. But I do ask, give it a chance. If I am lucky, the message here could help someone see a situation in which they find themselves in a new light. Above all, take this message as it is intended, please. I intend nothing but the best by it…

Dear Ethan

Hey buddy, how are you? I am sorry that I haven’t written lately. I’ve tried. I’m so so incredibly sad about being separated from you. I know that you are sad, also. I also, fully understand that you are in an impossible situation. You want to please your mom, and there is nothing wrong with that. I love my mom, too. That does not make this any easier.
