the thought movement

I'm starting this blog because I need to move traffic in my mind. There's congestion and I need a clear path to refocus so this is where the junk goes. Well, not junk, but writing is a great shovel; it can move the stacks of unconnected experiences and learnings in your head and make nice mounds that you can manoeuvre round with a brand new idea bike. I'll be putting up random links, reviews, views, maybe pictures if I ever pick my camera up again etc. etc. Who am I? My father's second son; a hand that writes, a hand that builds, feet that walk, and a mouth that knows not its own limits. I am a writer. I always say form is secondary, but many call me a poet - recently, I'm getting editor a lot too; I guess you could say I've had practice moving traffic! Thanks for being here. Comment away if you wish...

Joseph Powell here--hey, Nii, glad to see you're doing the damn thing as they say back here. I started my own blog last year for the same reasons, though I haven't been as prolific with it as I would like. In the words of John Lennon, "life is what happens to you when you're making other plans." There are things and ideas that are bursting to get out--but with trying to find sustainable work and take care of my "family"(girlfriend and her daughter), it's hard to make time to just be creative. But I don't want to weigh you down with all this. Keep on keeping on and I look forward to seeing more of your work. Peace.
