Welcome to the Lyceum blog. The majority of writing that will be found in the Lyceum is poetry, although, there are a few philosophical writings, and even articles as well. I really enjoy the writings, ideas, photos, and videos that all of you bloggers have to offer. There is an immense amount of talent here on WordPress, and as far as I’m concerned, all of you are worthy of commercialization, and New York Times publication. As for myself personally, I have always found writing to be a channel out of reality, and into the world we know best how to create, which is our own. Everyday, we create our own worlds through objective, and subjective thinking, but the most important things to note, is that we do harness the ability to create our own worlds. Perception is the tool for adaptation, and socialization, is the lubricant for progression. Whether you’re an experienced veteran blogger, or a “just -joined, what -does -this -do -blogger”, keep doing what you’re doing, and follow your intuition. I thank all of the bloggers who have followed me, and I appreciate sincerely your dedicated time for reading my material. There is no greater service, than to dedicate ones’ time to another, and all of you are appreciated. Again, thank you for stopping by, and welcome to the Lyceum. Below are some following words on the scope of my work, and also, my views on comments.
A Word on Lyceum Poetry:
The poetry presented in the “Lyceum Blog” is a collection of both past and present written poems. I cover many topics such as: love, hardships, relationships, hate, religion, and philosophy. Although I dedicate more time to my fiction, I prize poetry as my primary tool for writing. Poetry is the expression of all life’s thoughts, and truths, it mirrors the authors interpretations of life’s dilemmas, perspective, and empathy. The greatest of poems are not subjected to hours, days, or years of thought; rather, they are subjected to one moment of true insight, tailored by the emotional response of the author’s need to channel his, or her abilities to interpret the very meaning of their insight. The greatest truths can be found inside the pages of poetry, philosophy, and fiction, for they are a means of revealing truths, in such a manner to liberate the authors of repercussions. A poem cannot be right, nor wrong, it can only be perceived as it is by the reader as a justification, or explanation of the readers particular experience in accordance to the nature of its’ interpretation. Do not have mercy on the writer, because he or she will have no mercy in their abilities as a wordsmith to create verses of powerful wordplay intended to strike the chords of the readers’ own emotions.
A Word on Comments:
As a blogger, I realize the importance of reading a fellow bloggers work, but not only reading their work, or “liking” it, but also, commenting on it. When I read another writer’s work, I will always post a comment in relation to the writer’s works’ impression to me as the reader.
