    Gay Elephant

    That's cute.
  2. When tim first asked me to read this piece, it made me question what I believed. While I don't consider myself Christian, I respect those who hold those beliefs. This piece to me is an look in on the nature of duality. Good/Evil, Light/Darkness, Heaven/Hell... they are each two sides of the same coin. tim brilliantly brings that duality in focus, and makes us question the foundations of faith.

    Of God and Angels

    It made me think about theology all over again. This is truly a powerful piece, and like Mac said it makes you think. I'm still beholden to my beliefs of the divine, but it's always good to question yourself. Jefferson said it best: "Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear." - Thomas Jefferson Truth in one simple statement. It took me a long time, to get to where I am spiritually.

    Circling The Drain

    tim, my Brother. All three of these poems are fantastic pieces. The first one... is really speaking to me right now.
  5. Wow... I've had to read this three times, before I could comment on it. You're correct that storytellers, like me, can take this to heart as much as a poet could. The advice is sound and it shows the perspective an artist of any medium needs to take in order to do their work. I never heard of Rilke until I read what you posted hear and over in the Poet's thread. I might need to look him up.
  6. Happy Birthday, Myr. I hope it was a good one, and may the coming year be full of merriment.
  7. I think a lot of us can relate to this...

      Holy crap. I didn't know he did poetry too. I just knew of his plays. And 154 love sonnets is crapton to keep hidden!

      We did Julius Caesar in 12th grade English in High School. I think they changed the opening in what we studied, as I remember it as "Friends, Romans, Countrymen."

      Here's one of his sonnets. I "finished" it for him by suppling a suggestion for the missing two last lines. Maybe they were censored out for the first published edition...who knows. Too Gay...? Even for 1609...

      If you do decide to check out Julius Ceaser, just be aware that Shakespeare uses the term "brother" in the classical sense to mean partner (that is, a person who is more than a boyfriend and closer to husband...). The partnerships in the play are all spelled out for those with an interest to the real historical couples involved.

      The phrase "Friends, Romans, countrymen..." is used later on in the same scene by a different character; about 1,000 words after the "Romans, countrymen and lovers!" opening.

      Thanks, my friend.  :)   I love the pie thing.  Did you just create that saying?  I'm going to send it to a few people who know my addiction - they'll love it.

      You are most welcome, my friend.

      I can't take credit for that. I googled "happy birthday cherry pie," and that came up as one of the possibles.

    Hmmm... Interesting. More and more questions. Yeah, there's a few superhero powers that would be nice. Self-cloning would come in handy too.

    That would be wonderful to experience. Someone with Wolfgang's powers would be lucky to be able to do it.

    I like how Wolfgang, demanded that Jed fixing things, and in doing so made it better but worse at the same time.
  14. Thanks, Myr and Staff for all the hard work.
  15. The Ex is soooo tempting.
  16. Well.... Boston Just won the East Coast, and headed to the finals.

    IF my boys were real... Robert would be gloating that his team won, and Adam would be sending him to his bedroom without dessert.

      I stumbled upon your new identity on another site. Is there a significance to the change?

      @dughlas Uniformity, when posting on other sites, and GA. And, BHopper2 looked horrible as an Author.

      Mine is not as good as this.

      I was seven when my mother announced, completely straight-faced and with no sense of irony or humor, "I'm not buying lemonade anymore, all you lot do is drink it."

      She was being serious.

      Oh man, this is both hilarious and horrible at the same time.

  21. Saying this Motet is based on the story of David and Johnathan, doesn't do it justice. Each word is drawn from the Bible itself, and arranged in a sacred holy song. It illustrates the love two men had for each other, and entered into a marriage covenant that was sanctioned by the Church and before God. We all have different beliefs, and some may say that the Bible is just the Myths and Legends of the Christians, however, this tale is backed by historical evidence in the form of Rabbinical Writings.
