Hey, folks.
First time post. Is there a special handshake or ritual I need to perform to post here?

I sought a board like y'alls after reading some poetry by Mary Oliver.
"Have You Ever Tried to Enter the Long Black Branches?"
This poem in particular had a couple of lines that made me think hard about what I am doing.

"Do you think this world was only an entertainment for you?"
and
"Listen, are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?"

I don't think there's a secret handshake, but like when dogs meet it never hurts to do the submissive bow and let everyone sniff your butt first :)

Just kidding. I am somewhat of a poetry fan - listening to Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac sort of inspired me to buy a few books here and there...my favorite is probably Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology."

Welcome aboard, post at will!

Gee, thanks. I hardly ever get the chance to post much anymore. Sorry about my late reply. I'm just going to roll my eyes for the dog butt sniffing.
