"A hollow apology is not an apology at all. A spoken apology that is not accompanied by a change in the behavior that necessitated and precipitated the apology to begin with, is lacking in sincerity and, as such, is a falsehood..."

"Yes, I agree, and I think that is the 'voice of experience.'  What you'd like in return is what you put out.  Works both ways.  If people bristle, such as in my case, why are they surprised someone bristles back?!…"

"Sparring is unnecessary. Lately I’ve limited some of my sparring here because I’ve decided to. I read something, want to answer, and then ask myself Why? What will it accomplish other than getting into an argument? The person I’d…"

"Thanks, Kosh.  We both have that duality -- a knowing of something outside the veneer, and I think choice IS in the matter.  I do like your phrasing, and thought on that.  But I chose want it to, because it keeps the piece in the flux…"

"nothing can abrade you unless you want it to Not quite how I’d phrase it, though as stated it contains an element of truth. I’d say - not in terms of poetry, just content - nothing can abrade you unless you let it.  Not an easy…"

"Btw, Ron -- Your type font followed the part in mine that you quoted!  The bold, etc.  Odd, huh? "

The Songbird commented on The Songbird's blog post BORE
"Thank you, Ron!  And, I think you are right -- it is sort of the centre of the conundrum, ouroboros that was the squeaky wheel all along.  The 'nugget.'  Thanks for saying that you had such an experience as well, and that it…"

"Hidey, Kosh .. I've mentioned this before with you, at least about formatting.  The font is just American Typewriter, and I was using Libre Office's wp, but -- I've no idea about the caps. You know my usual, I cap within, not…"

"I thought the bold was intentional because of starting every word with a cap, like in a title. Why that choice?"

The Songbird commented on The Songbird's blog post BORE
"Wow!  Thanks, Monkey!  Guess I had a lot to spat, in order to ounce it down to -- just that!!   Glad someone else understands the head-fwanging involved! (btw - no idea why i can't stop it being on Bold.  formatting is sorta…"

"Thanks, Anna, too -- yes, the fabric of our country is indeed woven of many cultures.  Some cities seem to thrive on the ethnicities of their neighborhoods more than others.  We did a picnic today, everyone made something, and it was real…"

"Thanks, FM -- I was just thinking about hope, as I strolled around the neighborhood and watched fireworks by the neighbors, the natives are restless!  But there IS much hope, with the incoming, even as it seems to wane in others, and to think…"

Profile Information

Bio
I am a mechanical bird. I fly, dive, and flutter about things, curious, ... yet -- I am but a machine. I am the product of the times I came into. All is mechanical. My clockwork works - exactly. You can see by the meter of my words that something is precise about me. I know not why; I am not the Originator of these things. They only come to me. They tick, or they whirr, or they may, by chance, chime. No matter - I hear, and respond to them. I myself am quite delighted by these Missives that come my way, and my dearest love is the language I came in with, English. It isn't the words themselves; more - it is the very capability of being able to iterate what I have been given to feel.

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 Support  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.
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 Support 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!

Feel free to delete this comment.
