I’m sure that those of you who read my blog regularly have noticed my recent “absence”. I’ve posted many fewer poems lately than the last few months. However, I want you all to get excited. I haven’t posted many of my most recent poems because they are a part of a series I’m working on with a local artist. It is a collaborative work which began when I sent her a poem and she offered to illustrate it for me. I was so impressed with what she produced that I immediately wrote a poem in response to her drawing, which she then subsequently illustrated. I then wrote a poem in response to the that, and so developed our project.

At the rate we are currently working, we should be finished within another month or two. At that time, I’ll post a few of the poems and drawings, but to get them all, you’ll have to wait for the finished product to be published, which may take some time.

I will still post poems here on occasion, don’t worry. I will also post updates on our progress with this project, and maybe even an illustration or two if the artist OK’s it.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you are as excited as I am to see what is produced by this synthesis of language and image.



About QuietMonolith

I was just a mild mannered young man living in Portland, OR, until one day....POOF! I turned into a crazy, nefarious, thieving, drug-crazed lunatic. I had lots of therapy and spent many months in hospitals and treatment facilities. Eventually, at the end of my rope, I decided to change everything. With the support of my family and friends, I have embarked on a quest to achieve optimum wellness. I am making radical changes in every part of my life, and in the way I approach the world in which I live. Follow my blog, The Wellness Quest, to experience what happens when a desperate addict takes hold of his destiny and devotes all his time and energy toward making a full recovery. I am also a writer and poet. Follow my blog, What We Left Behind in Crowded Rooms, to take a look at some of my recent poems.
