The Pirate has a History

29 May

of writing poems. Well, he did. Here is cover to self published little spiral bound book he did in 92. I like the title. I think. I still feel like I am sitting at a window, watching the beautiful world go slowly by.

Pretty Awesome. I think the Archives may be returning to life. Perhaps not with new poems, but maybe some old poems shared here in the ds106 world. They are art, damnit!

I was inspired the other day watching @timmmmyboy and his great Aviary video for ds106 students. What a great thing when the students create content to help others. And even better when it is encouraged by the teacher! This ain’t your momma’s high school! So inspired I made my own poster but I used a few lines from one of my own poems.
