The Chaff and the Grain: You Decide

grain & chaff

This post is intended to mark a turn.

Until now my intent was to deliver compartmentalized content, with a place for “mostly poetry”, one for “mostly video”, one for micro-fiction, one for tweets, and so on, while selecting for each the more polished work I had time for.

There is writing and art that never appears anywhere, as it sits on the “editor’s desk”—mine.  I am therefore deciding to spend less time on the “editorial board”.

You, the reader, are the editor of what you choose to see or keep.

I can’t know which material will be a hit or miss. Never mind.  I will simply post. 

The point I’m trying to make is maybe best summarized in this just-remembered quote:

“A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and witha breath of kindness, blow the rest away.”           -Arabian Proverb
