    Yuky won´t ever be forgotten. And she has known much love.

    I agree Danik 2016 I also think our Blue has a great voice and has so many lovely stories to tell, of everyday life and also the deeper struggles we come to within what means "family".

    So true. Here in California we could use the water since it would be "so well managed". re Sci-Fi: Asteroids - we still have SG-1, and Aliens - the benevolent "To Serve Man" authors

    Very, very sorry about Yuky and you and your mum. There is so much Love in this story.
    You did and still do much to ease the dogs life. Lots of strength for you and your mum.

    Your life seems to be turning upside down with so many changes.
    But I think you yourself have provided the key answer for your future!
    "Gain more beings to be my reasons not to do something stupid."
    Maybe writing and publishing what you write will be one of them. You have a very personal style and voice.

    For sure, we never know how much our dogs are hurting. Yuki's had an amazing life with you guys! You've been so attentive to her needs and so many treats, I think it's a great way to say good-bye to such a sweet member of your family. I think it's good it can be planned and then you avoid a possible late night emergency situation. Been there done that, not recommended.
    It's a lovely story you have for her, I'm sure you'll be a huge comfort to her as she starts her next journey
    Sending you lots of strength for Monday, or whichever day it is.

    I think I found out what happened.On the top of the left margin of the document, there is a sort of menu. But one has to log in with Google to open it. I f one doesn´t log in one can view only that most recent poem from 8/8. But ok.

    Hope you get some sleep and solve your sleeping problem soon.

    So strange... I logged off my gmail account and clicked the link as a non-logged in viewer and it loads (albeit slowly) the entire 191 pages (as of this posting). Maybe a glitch due to google being down the other day ? Maybe another regional glitch... Dunno.


    this warm day with a light breeze
    accentuates my lethargy by degrees
    would that I could sleep anon and
    dream to appease my weary mind

    What I can see: the name of the project and author

    Two rectangles for including poems (one of them headed "poem by another poet" and then
    your poem from 8/8/2022.

    I suppose this is the last page.

    Odd you see only 1-poem... there are 190/or so pages of poetry prolly averaging 1+ poems per page. Doctor visits for my wife today; feeling hopeful Acupuncture will be brought up when we see the neurologist... my wife still hasn't received an appointment for one yet - maybe today when the local pain specialist gives her her release. (that looks funny: "her her" ?)

    I see! One poem appears and a list with bonus links

    I didn´t give much for acupuncture until a friend took me to an acupuncturist when I was in a state of extreme depression, because of a medicament. It worked wonders!

    Also my late cat Tino got on very well with acupuncture. He had a severe spine problem, his doctor showed me the x-ray. Acupuncture was suggested and I got a very nice animal acupuncturist. It often happened that he lay suffering under the table, when the acupuncturist arrived and after the sessions went to his favorite place on the top of my highest bookshelf.

    My doc doubles as a 2-page workspace for the next poetry assignment that I email & print out the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month for our poetry group... after page 2 or 3 is a compilation of recent poetry and bits and pieces of my poetry I glean from other platforms for entry (eventually) into my book(s). I've kept the format simple so I may cut and paste later, with candidates for my book(s) being highlighted. Is it not accessible ?

    re: Pain therapy, my wife has used some natural supplements with no joy... neither of us has considered yoga... but I have offered to experiment on her with acupuncture... can't be that difficult

    Hi, tailor,

    Enjoyed the magical poem.

    A bit confused about:

    Has your wife ever tried natural medicine, like homeopathy?
    And doing a carefully oriented yoga? Might be good for you too.

    Hoping Covid-19 just leaves you all alone this time.

    oh Blue more surprise revelations about your dad! it's so unfair.
    I hope you don't have to move ?
    How is Yuki doing today ?
    It was fun to read in a previous blog all the gardening you've been doing, wow! I have NO talent for gardening, I hope you're enjoying some veggies.

    And this in to muddy the waters:
    Using an array of satellite observations, researchers have found that the climatic influence of global air pollution has dropped by up to 30% from 2000 levels. Although this is welcome news for public health—airborne fine particles, or aerosols, are believed to kill several million people per year—it is bad news for global warming. The cleaner air has effectively boosted the total warming from carbon dioxide emitted over the same time by anywhere from 15% to 50%, estimates Johannes Quaas, a climate scientist at Leipzig University and lead author of the study. And as air pollution continues to be curbed, he says, “There is a lot more of this to come.”
