Journal: Where I Am -------------------------------------------
So if you dont have anything good to say dont say it at all eh? Well first of all, if anyone is curious about my music they can look it up at https://soundcloud.com/brown-penny
I dont presume anyone is but I am going to plug things where I can on my own page in terms of just linking my creative endeavors.
Now these journals usually require a poem dont they?

I am going to put together a little pamphlet of poetry I can sell in town for tourists. About landmarks and such. You could call it my Christmass card writing as its a bit cynical, but you know I actually enjoy it. And some of it is good.
For actual poetry well its the shoulder against the wheel as usual. Ive been appreciating a lot more lately about what I want to write and what I think is actually a good path for me versus what I think should be as regards poems. If I have nothing to say I dont say it. And if I force myself to say something I make sure that I am practicing or learning something and not just doing it for no reason.
I also have gone now from skim reading a load of things to reading just one or two books that really mean something to me from a poetic perspective I mean. With fiction Ill just read for pleasure.
This is the update journal. Without going on and on about the boring stuff I suppose Ill say something about my surroundings.
Its the 9 July at about 6pm and Im in Meaghers Pub in fairview (the town where I grew up). I had to visit the pharmacy earlier for a prescription and I still go to the same places for that stuff I did when i was a kid. So I couldnt resist going in for a drink or two in a place strong with memories.
Its a cosy place. I had a friend who came and lived in fairview but he/we never came here. "e always went to Gaphneys. A perfectly fine establishment where they had paintings of these old boats going out to sea. A sailors bar in the middle of a road basically. It was great.
But this particular pub has more memories for me. And I think of the neighbour who used to live underneath us and how he was such a friend to me and my Mam. I half feel like asking the equally old barman does he remember him but Ill forgo for the sake of not ruining the good will I have received in here.
I think ultimately this will be my local where no one goes but me. Not family or friends but just me.
Even during the day it has an after hours quality. And the bathroom feels like you are under a sky light. Airy and well... whatever ha.
I think one day if I ever make money Ill move back here or buy a house here as my permenant retreat.
Right slap bang in the middle of the congested city.
Hey Craig. Msg received. Msg appreciated. Just had 9 days off so going back to work my body feels like it got beat by a stick. Trying to make an early night of it. You're a good guy. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
