  1. What I'm working on..

    by , 06-09-2013 at 06:04 AM (Silas Thorne's Journal)
    Apart from the edits on the thesis, I'm working on a collection of limericks, which I will release on this blog. W.S. Baring Gould published a collection a while back, called 'The Lure of the Limerick'. They are kind of in that vein. Rather dark, cruel and impolite, though a few are a bit lighter in character.

    Today I also decided to rerelease a few of my older poems on my blog, which I deleted for quite a while, a few very personal ones. Anyway, if you are interested, I think I have ...

  2. Beginning at the End

    by , 05-19-2013 at 11:03 PM (Silas Thorne's Journal)
    So, I've finished my PhD in Chinese. I've submitted it, done my defence, and after a few minor edits over the next few weeks, I'll be a Doctor of Rambling Somewhat Coherently about my field of expertise.

    But it's really only a beginning for me. I'm a late starter, and have lots to do. After the edits, I've got some translation work to do, technical manuals, from English TO Chinese. Then looking for work, doing international business, there's lots of things on my plate.

  3. Still around, but there's this draft...

    by , 06-05-2012 at 05:23 AM (Silas Thorne's Journal)
    It keeps coming under my door.

    I can't let the poetry, or the wonderful words of here, enter for a week or so, they distract me from the mission.

    When this draft is complete, I will write some poems, look to the Shaolin masters for training, and breathe freely until the next mission presents itself.

    I think just, great, man! Rocket, man! It's gonna be a long, long, time....
    First time I saw this, man, rocket, man!

    No youtube in China, have to settle for this.

  5. Words released...

    by , 10-08-2009 at 11:07 AM (Silas Thorne's Journal)
    Opened up the shutters and let the light stream in. If you look you can see words inside the room, arranged into sense-units, feeling for themselves, some tasting bitter, some sweet.
    No sense keeping all this stuff hidden any more. What words to come I may not show, but what is here, is here.
    Rock on, jazz on, rage on! Strum the guitars and let the bugles blow! Let fall trees fall blood leaves and spring spring shoots shoot forth !
