Going Through Old Notebooks

Well I have begun...pulled out an archive box of old poetry notebooks...oldest is dated October,'s both interesting and uninteresting...some good basic observations of winter by Lake Michigan...a bunch of lame ramblings...getting started I was...I think I'll actually do it...go through all the notebooks mining them for one-liners, quotes...short forgotten poems...fragments w/possibility for a way i don't like it as it's such a turning inward and looking backward...feels better looking outward at the world for poem ideas...then again...what's the point of keeping the notebooks if not to go back through them sometime...I think this is the time...and this note is being written when I've just gone through the most recent five years. Now I'm going back to the beginning and coming up through the years. There are two archive boxes of notebooks and a small 3rd box of the most recent. The photo is of box 1.

Poetry at Wheeler Hill, Summer 2008

One of the more interesting places to do a reading is Michael Czarnecki's farmstead. Folks bring their own chairs or sit on hay bales. Fortunately, the weather was beautiful. When I did this in 2007 it rained. That worked out ok because there were only about 8 people so we all fit on the porch.

I'm Back

Greetings folks, I'm back after being done dirty by the man. Yes folks I came on blogspot one day looking for my blog and it was deleted. Now I never posted pictures of naked ladies or even pictures of my naked self...never posted four letter words except love and live and life....but somehow, someway, I got deleted. A couple friends have recently begun blogs so I thought I'd try again.

However, my old blog might exist somewhere because is an already taken address and Charlie Rossiter is an already existing blog that I can't find so now I'm here with Charlierossiterpoet. let's see how that works.

no promises but I'm thinking about learning how to post things other than words...

If I can remember my password, I'll be back.
