Ideas outside the fold are never entertained, are slapped down with threats of excommunication. But for libraries, I would nave never known of voices that sang against the daily chatter in my ear.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
