The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,900 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

An Untangled Moment

O! How lovely to feel some untangled moments.

I may not be right

but it feels like light

is all we’re made of.

If a particle is a wave and a wave is a particle,

this sensation of bodily flesh

is a mass of tangles

of strands of light

that glump together in zillions of ways.

So I’ll be a sweet mother

And set out to combing

this precious girl’s knotted curls,

of tangles of strands of light, poor girl,

so your strands of light will flow

to the blissful dream

of the cave in me, of Emptiness

You’ll glow
