once upon a myspace


once upon a time there was a place called myspace where people could go and write a few words (or millions) and put up a few photos (or hundreds) and add some songs or videos (that I still can not hear or see, alas) and do all sorts of interesting and amazing design trips to share, quite publicly if they'd like, their words and photos and music and videos and whatever else they can fit through their electronic signals that lead from their computer out into cyberspace...

a few years ago I stumbled upon it and somewhere along the way I added myself to the millions who were signing up there... they now have about a million new sign ups a day (I'm suspecting much is the work of robots or people who have nothing better to do than create new accounts) and they are approaching a hundred and fifty million accounts...

anyway, in recent weeks, or perhaps it's been months now, I've started adding some words to my myspace... I flushed out my profile and give the cyber world one of the more in depth and eclectic views into who I am as I do anywhere... and I've started blogging there (yes, there too)... in the interest of not wasting words and giving you a taste of what happens when I blog over there (in case it's different than what I've been doing here just about daily for more than three years), I present a few of the myspace blog entries here behind the candoor for your edification and enjoyment, or just FYI if that's all you get out of them...

ready or not, here are some myspace words:

hello myspace world, how are you today?... I hope you are well and finding your emotions on the positive side of the median and if you are not there, I hope you find some thread of humor, even if it's cynical or sardonic, to hang on to until something inspires your smile... maybe even finding some stranger on the internet cares enough to ask how you are could do it...

hey, they're only words
and I love to play with them
for they can move my emotions
and turn my frown into a smile

I know they're only words
but what are numbers then
we count and put so much value
on cash, don't we all want a pile?

for me words matter more
I place my value in the story
and the messages we can send
to each other
friend or love
sister brother
father mother
to each other


it's going on 3am and I've got work in the morning, Monday morning, just another manic Monday but I don't hate Mondays because it is one more day offering the opportunity to experience life and hope for love... I had a great time at a concert tonight (you can find the concert schedule in a previous blog entry if you're curious to know which bands we saw) and even though I am lonely cuz everybody went to bed, I still feel the energy of the music and the friendly crowd and the hope inside me that tomorrow will be even better than today...

and so I came here to thank you for being out there, especially for reaching out to me if you did... and I want you to know I not only appreciate you, but I care about you (getting to like you, getting to hope you like me) and it is in this caring that I find my hope for tomorrow because even when I am feeling lonely or down in the dumps, if I remember that I care I feel better and find hope that someone else might care too and then, we can feed each other some caring and watch it grow exponentially as caring really is a pay-it-forward kind of feeling...

hey, they're only words
but if we agree they're more
they can knock down any door
like ideas entering a mind
you can never get them out
the mind, once opened
it's shape changed, suddenly it grows
and it can never go back to it's original shape


so what if we decided, I mean, right now (though it could be anytime you want) to make each other matter... to say hello and want to know how we are feeling and why... what is up and what is down inside and why... what if we dared open up and shared an honest moment, a real handshake or hug in our words... what if you chose to believe I really do care about you and you gave me the trust of believing in me... and what if you shared yourself and I chose to believe you really do care about me and I gave you the trust of believing in you...

that is why I am here, public space, and the comment box is open and the links to other ways of contact, email, snail mail, even phone are readily available right here in my myspace profile... and if you want to know more about me before you decide, there are seemingly endless pages of writings, some autobiographical and some creative, that reflect me and my perspectives and opinions and thoughts and feelings about life and love and the universe and just about everything...

I know they're only words
but what are we then
I think therefore I am
and I share myself in words because I can

they're only words
but they hold the master plan
and the hope for understanding we can all share
and isn't that the hope for man
as in mankind
it's humankind
may we understand

that though they're only words
the represent us
and can help us
share and do the best we can
to make this world a better place
and put a smile on every face

here are words
I love you.

I hold to the family plan
we are all part of the whole
the same energy runs through every soul
call it God or love or ka or anima
or whatever word you understand
just put yourself in words the best you can
and share yourself and even join the band
and harmonize with those who understand
this world is built on the family plan
life is made in the family plan

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...
