Hello all,

I have not been well lately, and it’s due to a variety of reasons. The main symptom is depression, which seems to be a controlling beast at times, telling me not to feed myself, not to get a new job, etc.

Anyway, I want to let you know how much your readership means to me–

I put out these pieces as my way of communicating with the world. I like how simple I’ve been able to make the website (or blahg, depending on your view), and it’s heartening to see that I can gain followers with pure content alone.

I don’t go in for gimmicks and marketing strategies, which may ultimately be my downfall. What I write is what that moment dictates, and not manufactured for retail. That’s generally why I don’t write posts like these very often, if at all.

Y’all are great though, so I wanted to say something to just let you know that I love writing for this website and I hope to write many more pieces in the future. This one is going to be shown as 499, at least the 499th of the pieces I’ve kept on the site after grooming it some time ago. With unpublished drafts, this will be my 720th post. Hooray! I think.

I always need to remember that I’m not alone, even though it may seem that way sometimes. Thank you for choosing to read my work, I hope it will continue to merit your attention. :D

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.

  1. Aidan: One more comment for the day. I am new to the blogging world and see that you’ve been around for some time. Your piece here reflects much of what I think as well and I appreciate you saying it. I’ve been searching for other writers who I truly “like” and not just to have a like returned to me. And, it’s nice to find a writer who inspires me – not a thing I toss about lightly! I enjoy your humor but more so the depth of your humor, to say nothing about your honesty and the clarity of your writing. I know it’s not all about humor, but that’s what drew me in initially. Humor with meaning is a really hard task and I think you are on it. You’ve made me think about using humor in my own works (noticeably absent!) and also maybe something related to baseball. Your thing about the snake and stealing second was priceless!


    1. Thank you Tom, your comments are the reason I put together these pieces in the first place. I’m very happy that you view my work as a successful merger of humor and honesty, because a lot of times I wonder what I’m even doing.
