. . . but it's not like that is a bad thing in some cases.
I don't mind telling you if I had to do half the crap I see some poets doing just to be known by other poets for doing poet things, I would be dead by now. I mean it. There are a lot of things I would live to do inside of the poetry community, but there are some things which simply scare me to death. But then, I am certain the overwhelming majority do all that crazy stuff because they love it.
Have at it, all ye laurels, have at it. I admire you and all, but boy, I sure like my down time.
