A few weeks ago I wrote a poem, entitled “Rock Bottom.” It was a deep, angry at times, desperate at others, writing. I liked it and didn’t know where it belonged, so I “posted it on this blog (I have several others)
I wrote the title, ROCK BOTTOM, browsed through my files, clicked and the poem was posted supposedly.
Simple. I did it hundreds of times, and now that I had a new computer it was more fun, easier! Clicked Publish Post and I was in business!
The following day I received several “likes” which encouraged and delighted my poetic ego.
This went on for a while, until I decided to re-read this masterpiece which was “LIKED” by so many. Click, click… Nothing The post was BLANK! It didn’t attach! Then what did people like? A blank page?
At first, I thought there was something wrong with all the people who liked a ‘BLANK” post, but then I realized what happened. The truth was complex1
The title was “Rock Bottom” That equals NOTHINGNESS! How much deeper could I get, to find such a symbolic way to express rock bottom by writing nothing!
I am debating if I should post the real poem. I don’t want to damage this new status, so undeserved, but which feels good:)
First, I’d like to thank the almost 4500 readers of this blog and to the many who commented on various posts.. Thanks to you this blog became a published book, The Gypsy Saw Two Lives, which received excellent professional and readers’ reviews.
TODAY, for the first time, I received a rude, angry comment to a post which was in fact a first draft of a chapter in my BOOK. This person, an older woman dating younger man, who didn’t have the courtesy to sign her name, used such insulting language in her comment, that frankly it made me smile! It showed such lack of basic understanding of very simple principle. It clearly showed she used the comment to insult something which she doesn’t understand. I am taking this opportunity to let everyone know that I will NOT respond to UNSIGNED comments but to comments from which we all LEARN. ANGRY comments and INSULTS go DIRECTLY TO TRASH, where they belong.. Thank you. Comments are not a venue for stress management lessons. Please search “stress management, or anger management,” to find the correct programs to help you.
