That you may yet still
To My Dear Readers
Much happens in the relatively small space of a decade. Within the pages of this 10-year archive, begun in November 2004 while living in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge, is a collection of some 446 postings consisting primarily of poems along with accompanying photographs mostly of my own creation.
Here can be found tributes to lost family, friends, and loved ones; over-indulgent paeans to endless longing as well as sentimental poems of love attained, feigned, and regained; photo essays and ranging remembrances of people, places, things.
Nature and animals feature prominently throughout this past decade as do forays into labyrinths of wonder, doubt, regret, conjecture, gratitude, loss, acceptance, and the many expansive vistas of personal success and failure.
A door closes, a window opens.
I will be building a new and proper website, under my own name, that will become a repository for future original music, art, and the written/spoken word. When complete and duly hosted, I will update this last posting with the embedded link should anyone stumble upon this blog and choose to follow this venture into its new web presence.
I wish to thank the many readers over the years who visited Drachenthrax and tendered their valuable time reading and perusing its pages. To date--whether purposely or by accident--there have been well over 37,000 visitors from around the world. It is my hope that some of you found respite and reflection here and that, from time to time, you may yet still.
I thank you all sincerely and hope to see you at the new website
sometime in 2015.
