Ah Google+!

Hello. 

Can't remember the last time I was on here. Christ! I'd forgotten how Google publishes every blog link & Youtube video by default, unless one opts out... My profile is a sea of links to stupid thing I've written. Then again, this isn't exactly a brilliant post, either. Oh well... Happy Friday!

You don't opt 'out', you opt 'in'!
Your HOME stream should ONLY show you stuff from folks that you have added to your circles (apart from an occasional "What's hot..." recommendation that Google think might be for you, based on your other interests).
When you look at your own PROFILE page, you do see everything you've posted - 'private' OR 'public' - but when other folks look at your profile, they only see what you shared with them in mind (ie, whichever of your circles they are in, and depending on the privacy setting you used when you posted it).
Perhaps you need to organize your circles, young padawan... ;-)

Red and read and red again Fuck every bloody song  Color my action in slow bleed  Unglove this hand and feel my skin crawl under the belly of wretched need. The dangle  of your cigarette lets the ash swallow the smoke but you still wrangle me from every mir...

Second Life
"Crazy is as crazy does. Fucking freaks of nature. That's what the lot of us are", was what her mama always said to her, but Linda Jefferson was desperate to be associated with a cause or a group or with anything that would give her some true higher sense o...

Sussuration
Florence Henri, Still Life  I remember our last day. The climb along the shoreline. The absence of wind. The sun, a saffron glow at the horizon. We thought our knees would give out before our wills did. The trail was steep but our ascent had been slow and s...

What Foods These Morsels Be

They're Here
She lay there. Husks of shadow peeling back, layer by layer. The dark adjusted itself to her presence. Reality scratched at the air. Its sounds were abrasive, but muzzled. Spectral transmissions from some low-fi electronic hell. The static popped and crackl...

Solar
The day is a diamond. The wind a shiver in my bones.  Everything is so sharp and clear, in spite of my failing vision. My feet hurt but I've only walked a few steps and have so much further to go. I wish I could turn this dry pavement to wet grass and the s...

Not Better
She walked up to the edge of my small bed, and as she sat down, her face peeled into a smile. She grabbed my Dancerina Ballerina out of my 6 year old grasp Still smiling - her irises shone bright with auroral light - all the spectres of the universe residin...

Reverse Shot
That she was desperate was evident by the shade of taint she chose to peroxide herself. Texture like that is seldom seen outside of a barn stall. She knew it, too, but was armed and ready to do battle against what she assumed was the offense of anyone think...

Leavenworth Street
It's the magic hour. Signs of serendipity everywhere Jasmine perfumes the air The sky is a wash of blue gouache A lazing sun dangles its ease at tree level. The wild parakeets of Telegraph Hill squawk their green thunder as they fly by. Shadows are dancing ...

Introduction
I love to laugh...
I think life should be fun...
Thinking is so delicious to me
I say "Mmm..."
after a particularly tasty thought.

To those who keep banging their heads into that proverbial wall:

Einstein once said, "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
So... dare to explore the uncertain outcome or risk both your sanity & your ultimate fulfillment...

I'd like to meet people with honest characters, curious minds, and open hearts.

"I grok people. I am people… so now I can say it in people talk. I've found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts so much… because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting."
~Robert Heinlein, Stranger In A Strange Land

‘Eiusdem libidinis est videri et videre’
~Tertullianus


"If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, music, you automatically explode every morning like Old Faithful.
I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed quickly, to trap them before they escape."
– Ray Bradbury
