Blog 2.0?

All posts from my original blog poetry, dreams, and the body (an archive of about 350 posts created over the last six years) have been lost due to a software error in the blogging platform. All attempts to recover from the error have been unsuccessful. Having exhausted all of the available options, I was left with no choice but to start a new blog from scratch.

Fortunately, a number of my more significant posts are still available on other sites around the web, as follows:

What if he cries?
Men and grief
What do you need right now?
Healing is not for wimps
My life with Iron Man
Movie review: “Iron Man”
I am a Highly Sensitive Man
Coming to terms with an absence of elders
Broken bones and the Father Wound
Stepping out from the shadow of the father
Unhiding myself
A male survivor’s perspective on “rape culture”
Don’t give up your life
“Poetry for men” and other problematic labels
Poetry on video: “body memory”
Poetry on video: “easter”
Poetry on video: “falling through”
Some thoughts on forgiveness
The body is the gateway
A mini dreamwork primer

I also have individual off-line backups of all my posts, so if there’s anything not listed above that you’d like to have, please let me know via the “Contact” page on my website.

A ton of my other work is still available on my website, including:

  • the “Contents” page for my first book, Iron Man Family Outing, with many excerpts
  • a preview page for my second book, Scapegoat’s Cross, also with many excerpts
  • a “More” page with previously unpublished poetry as well as links to my YouTube videos and work posted on other sites

As one might expect, losing a six-year-old blog is a big shock. I’m still trying to regroup and figure out how I want to proceed going forward. I may republish some of what I consider to be important posts from the original blog here as I have the time. Or perhaps I’ll go another way entirely. For now, it’s all TBD: To Be Determined.
