This reminds me of Ogden Nash's style.

It wouldn't be David if there wasn't something deeper..
On a side note - I have a such a hard time signing your blog, because I don't have a blog myself. Why so discriminating?

No I don't. I started setting one up so I could post comments here (that's how much I love this blog!). I thought I set up an account but sometimes when I try to sign in it doesn't work. Why did u think I have one - have you somehow read my non-existent blog?

Like the picture.
Like the title. (it matches the poem's succinct, unserious style)
Get the point. (You have to understand yourself in order to answer questions, or know where you're going.)
What prompted this?
Good way to express it.

Ummm...ok.

I get the point, but most of your analogies are better (unless maybe I'm getting the point wrong?)

Time for a nose job...

Blogger Bas~Melech said...

Oh, and Dreamer, I think I saw your nose once but it was such a long time ago I think I forgot :P

Blogger David_on_the_Lake said...

dina..
well..let me know what it looks like so I can help..

dreamer..
hmm I have enough people taking care of that in real life...
..I come here to feel smart..lol

oooh my first anonymous comment
Thanks for your kind words.

Your interpretation is excellent.
What prompted this was. I was getting exasperated trying to get a depressed friend to see all the good in his life right "in front of his nose"..to no avail.
When I realized that I'd been taking for granted my point of reference (the nose). That perhaps he doesnt have the maturity ot awareness to process whats in front of his nose.

Make any sense?

Bas_Melech..
I wouldnt call this an analogy...
and...thanks for the added pressure..sheesh

Did you actually start allowing anonymous comments? Just for me?? Now I'm the one that's flattered..!

Love it!

Know what draws me here time and time again? You rarely need to explain anything you write. I write well, but you have this depth that my writing lacks.


like my Babi used to say, There's always going to be someone better than you in life, and it's the better man who admires them, not resents them.

anonym00kie...
finally..someone comments..to the point..
:-P

allie...
well...M00kie has been complaining for awhile now..but when I saw ur previous comment..I just had to..

chav...
whoa..you are way too kind..but thanks
Just keep writing..what u feel..just let if flow..
I never wrote a thing before I started blogging..so its an experience in motion and it keeps changing..
and ur Babi sounds like a smart lady..

Thanks! Sometimes I get in the mood to start a blog but I have no idea what to write about. I always enjoyed writing, but I have not written in ages. So until the creative gene digs itself out of the humdrum-boringness-of-everyday-life that I have unfortunately smothered it under, my blogs will remain empty. In the meantime - I am so excited to be able to easily comment on your blog, I don't know where to start!

allie..
Just write what you observe and what you think..
When you're alone in the car..your mind wanders..doesnt it..try to remember what you think about and just write. I need music to get my creative juices flowing..some need silence..
Whatever it is..just let it flow..dont fret about what it'll look like..
Comment away..I'll go back and read em
:-)

yay david!
now i can comment cuz before i couldnt - i think i forgot my password or something- whatever, it didnt work.
so, comments, yeah, hmmm
nice stuff!
i like this better than some of your more flowery stuff, but that is just me. I always hated poetry in school, figuring that if you want to say something, why not just say it straight rather than cloud the issue with flowery words. but that's just me. i do agree with many of your opinions.

oh and about your feminist post, as my grandmother says when she sees pregnant mothers dropping off their one year olds at the babysitter, rushing off to work "ah mishigine velt!" stress on the "ah"

Thanks for your encouraging words...
I'd love to go back and comment on all your old posts, but although I spend an undending amount of time online, I don't know if I have that much time... So - here's looking to a brighter future filled with my insightful comments!

megapixel...
oh gosh,...you too?
but..dont u have to login inorder to be able to post on ur blog?
well thanks..but there are certain emotions that prose just cant quite capture...or elicit..
Its like buying a beautiful impressionistic oil paint of Jerusalem..and then saying..hey why dont you just buy a picture..if its jerusalem you want to see..

and yes..ah meshiggineh velt is right..

allie...
sounds good..

anonym00kie...
wow..thats all it took?
lol
