This post has been removed due to copyright and liability concerns. If you would like a copy of the post, please email me, and we will discuss it. Please consider that I am a standard member and do not check my email on this site regularly, so it may be a few days before I can return your email.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but I have discovered some bloggers are threatening litigation and bringing other similar legal "strong arm tactics" to bear against fellow bloggers.

It's probably just another case of some idiot buying their own hype to the point that they think their excrement doesn't stink. Regardless, I want nothing to do with it, and I feel the removal of this content is required to protect my own interests.

I love this one. I think it's something we've all felt at some point in our lives. You're quite talented.

Okay, nice verse...I understand exactly what you mean, having been thru this OUT! You are on your own again. I totally understand the situation and it's a heartbreaker. But where does that leave you?

Yeahhhh, it's natural to become comfortable in the married life...sedated...quiet...complacent. I follow completely....

Now you have to change your lifestyle. Again. This isn't what you wanted, but it's the hand you've been dealt. Either gather up the `nads and assess your position and go with the best decision, or camp out on the futon and blog all day. Don't camp. Move.

What do you want to do? Put it in your mind. Get a legal pad and pen, jot down what you love. Jot down what's important. Jot down where you want to be in ONE FIVE years. Find a way to get day at a time. You will find out that your future begins with whatever you will do in the next ten minutes.

C'mon man! Your future is inside you, just waiting to get out. Do you have any idea what your potiental is? Make her wish she never broke up with you! Do It!

Might seem me...I wish I had someone kick my ass when I was in your shoes back then....

It's time for an adventure. Don't forget your friends along the way.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

This is cool. Was it intentional that you shaped your verse into wings? Love the shape, and man I know the feeling.

And Jim, I'm listening too, I always feel like you're talking to me cause the message fits... thanks friend...

Not all who wander are lost.

One thing I learned the last time around that a commitment to another person can be a good thing, but it should NEVER involve the tethering of a spirit.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

Jim, thanks for the advice and the ass kicking. It helps. These feelings are not fresh. I've been divorced for three years, but this is the first time I've stopped since then and took a chance to catch my breath. I've been figuring things out, remembering things I used to do all the time, the way i used to speak, the way I used to write. In silence and darkness it floods back to me now.

The man I used to be would have never let me get to the state I am in now. As I remember to be me again, I realize it is time to do something about the shit I don't like.

woodstock, I know what is important now, before I even leave. Inner-peace, love for self, love for another, and challenges are important. I'm not going out to learn what I need. I'm going out to find it.

Daphne, I plan on seeing as many along the way as possible, and I have no intentions of leaving blogland. To quote one of my favorite movies of all time: "The dude abides."

Flinky, I can see how you get wings out of this, and that's something cool I hadn't even considered! When I wrote this, my focus was on the length of the lines. The whole goal of the poem is to go, to disappear, and at the end of each stanza, the words almost dwindle away and disappear, but then they start back at the original length (right back where they started.) Then they dwindle away again.

Man, you are young, outgoing, humorous, talented, hardworking and a real people can do whatever you want to do and make a killing doing it. Ever thought about sales?

jim, I tried sales, and I sucked at it. Hated it. Loathed it. Despised it.

I think I am going to see if I can talk my current online employers into keeping part time, and if they do, I'm going to hit the road in style. if they don't, I think I'll hit the road anyway. I'm going to post the details of the plan once it's finalized.

Honni, you just never know, but to be honest, I have a feeling if I start walking, I'm not going to stop, at least not for awhile. My feet are itching too badly to allow me to stop.

It's good to know I have friends backing me up where ever I may roam.
