“For Lack of What”

It is difficult

to get the news from poems

yet men die miserably everyday

for lack

of what is found there.

-William Carlos Williams

I’ve always loved this excerpt from “Asphodel, That Greeny Flower.” It really seems to capture the importance of poetry, of art. And that is an importance that I personally cherish. I created this blog with the intention of celebrating the importance of literature by exploring the written and spoken word, and by developing my own writing.

I don’t know exactly how this online venture will go, but I’m excited to try something new. Who knows if it will lead anywhere?

But for now, I’ll just stay optimistic. Hello, world!
