Responding to a serious problem

A serious problem requires a serious response. "Turning a blind eye" simply allows the problem to fester and perhaps become critical and beyond the reach of help.

The Search for a Pathway Leading to Deep Inside

The search for a way inside

a place where the soul can't hide

Many pathways of the mind lead in

but which one is right you me

or you

The silence leads me in

The sound of the cicada leads me in

The music leads me in,

right now Jackson Browne

but other artists, too

Displaying courage

in the face of oppression

leads me in

A good joke leads me in…

I would rather create than sit and wait

I would rather keep on trying than succumb

To fate

 

I don’t believe in fate

Any more than I believe

In the power of hate

 

Lately I’ve been feeling

We are at the end of night

Lately I’ve been sensing

 

We are on the verge of rising

To some new height

 

So don’t allow apathy and cynicism

To shroud the that light that exists

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the ABOUT tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the ABOUT tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
