    I've been posting at the "InfoHub Forums" for two years and, at first, I thought that this was the same site. In the 5 minutes I've been here I can see it isn't; this site looks like it could be more than a little useful to me and what I post may, in the long or short term, be useful to others.
    1. A Poem I Wrote:

    My writing is remorselessly and, I like to think, glitteringly intent on diagnosis. The glitter of invention is, for me, everywhere and it is linked with and provides a distinctive literary identity, a creative abundance. For some readers I’m sure this is the case, but not for most. For most who chance upon my writing, though, the affect on them is enervating as it is for me after a long day of writing or even periodically in the course of any single day. I like to think my literary venture is gallant and ambitious, even if it is not really successful in the marketplace. My unremitting concern for detail, for analysis and for comment is not everybody’s and my advice to many would-be readers is to take my writing in small doses.-Ron Price with thanks to Vincent Buckley, “The Novels of Patrick White,” The Literature of Australia, editor, G. Dutton, Penguin, 1972(1964).

    I create a world, too, Patrick;
    I want to show extraordinary
    things behind the ordinary,
    the mystery and the poetry,
    to transcend the tensions and
    explore my world by words.

    No mere surface impressionism
    but passages, words, vibrant with
    significance growing out of profound
    numbness and pervasive inarticulateness.
