Poetry Matters

I was just looking at the Poetry Matters section at the Poets Against War site.

Yeah, the written word is only one facet of who we are. Still, I think it would be cool - and possibly very useful - to get ourselves sufficiently organized to get linked to from their page. I don't quite know what that would entail. OK, I don't have the faintest idear what it would entail. But, I think we need to begin seriously thinking of ourselves as an organization, a progressive, activist organization with one goal (TBA) striven towards through several means: the written word, music, photography/painting/graphic arts, handycrafts, etc. I'm not a great fan of structure, but I think we need to start seriously considering the structure of this org., its purpose and means.

Any idears?

This is a wonderful fresh beginning for artists who are also very Dean!

♥ Thank-you, Catreona! ♥

We need a common purpose, a short-term project perhaps. What do the Poets Against the War need by way of support from kindred blogs? Or do we simply want to choose our own "project" and go for it?

One idear is to link with some of the people who visit veterans, such as Anne*from*Vermont and see if there are some vets who have written poetry about their struggles.

In addition, are there some among us who have written poetry during this difficult time? Or who have painted, or created music, or whatever OUT OF their sorrow or hope related to the war and/or the state of this country?

What if we all tried to create or uncover at least one item to share with one another by...Valentine's Day?

P.S.: Sorry, but I don't seem to be recognised by the blog nanny anymore as a regular blogger. Catreona, if you can retrieve my original information it might help. Or? I tried to sign up again, but it thought I was trying to make a new blog. I think there's something I don't understand. HA!

Hi friends,

Sorry, but I have gotten sort of used to nobody posting here, so I don't check it very often.

Thanks for the kind words, Jo!

listener, all your idears/suggestions are splended. We *do* need to get organized...

As to your confidence that I can straighten out yur Blogger problems, it's gratifying but misplaced. I really know zip about Blogger and am pretty incompetent. I'll look into it, though.

listener, I donno what the problem is with your log-in. Clicking your name on the Contributors list took me to your Blogger profile, which seems in order. At the bottom of that it lists The Arty Blog as a blog, the only one, apparently, for which you're a contributor. Clicking the link brought me back here. So, the system as far as I can see it seems in order.

Sometimes, though, I've noticed they make you log in again. Have you made sure you're logged in on Cetus? That's all I can think of; it doesn't recognize you because you're on a different computer. Other than that, I don't know what could be wrong.
