There's a problem with blogs : they blur the distinction between poems, essays, & blab.

Why is this a problem? Because anything really interesting requires some discipline, some self-restraint.

Because writing should be subsumed by the disciplines of thought & silence.

Why? Because the most basic problems in the world can be traced to illiteracy, lack of access to education & freedom, the inability to communicate, powerlessness.

& if you, as a writer, feel no sense of responsibility toward the problems of the world, then I don't want to bother reading your superficial productions.
