Joe Blades lives his version of a Canadian artist's life with at least one twist ...
This is just how I feel!
I’ve been reading Broken Joe for a while, and first I want to say is that I really like the way U write and think, above all I’ve enjoyed reading Ur poems. When I read ‘In dark water’ first thought crossed my mind was: This is just how I feel (as I’ve already written above). After some time I’ve found myself wondering whether reading was just another floating thing to hold onto, or maybe a way for shore… For me, I guess, it’s just a board. How do U feel about writing? R
Books are better than people, that's why there are books. "Look into the invisible and you will see beyond the mind's eye"
both writing and reading can be a floating thing to hold onto, to transport one out of a situation or place into something different, other. this is part of the good magic of words and language, culture. writing makes for an easy sharing far and wide, easier than talking (unless broadcast or recorded and reproduced). reading or the book may sometimes be a board to cling to in deep, dark water. other times it may be the diving board or a see-saw. writing might have grown the tree or build the ship or whatever that this flotsam is from. one doesn't really know, or need to know.
