9.8.14 –– to my new followers:
hello, hi. i am eli. thanks for following. i find it quite odd that people continue to follow me on this here website. after five years here, typing out these sort of posts is still a clumsy thing for me to do. why would any person out there in the world want to know things about me? what is there of myself to tell you? sure, there is plenty i could say, i know myself well, but this is the internet. what part of me really needs to be shared on this platform called the world wide web?
i’m not much interested in talking about my life here, but i am interested in growing relationships. i want to build connections and then i want to see those people in the flesh, i want to live a day with all of you, i want to see what your life is like, i want to know what gets you happy and what drags you down, i want to see excitement and wonder in your eyes, i want to hear you belly laugh, i want to hear stories from another lifetime way back when you were younger and lived a simpler life. i guess what i’m trying to say is that i want to create moments that turn into shared memories.
say hello, ask some questions, tell me silly things, whatever! reach out and say something. i’ll return your message, promise.

Dalton is a very kind person who’s words, i am thankful for. each time i read his poems, i am given a sparkling brand new kaleidoscope and i see the wonder i missed before. please, everyone: read his art and see the shimmering all around you.
