What this isn’t

Unknown web searchers, I’m sorry you were led astray and ended up here. This is not a site about Amish rubber boots, heavy rain penis, existentialist haircut, tweety only poems about love, how is a turtle and a groundhog alike, or (Lord knows) poems and classy behavior. This isn’t a site about sexsexsex, what colour is cat vomit, what does a groundhog penis look like, don’t eat whatever you say, tips for surviving the apocalypse, how to make me happy, shit creek banjo, wood rat midden photo, poem about not being a dick, poems about being rescued from climbing, explanatory poems on mitosis, or 20 gauge crow hunting. Most of all, this is not a site about the via negativa. I’m sorry. Better luck elsewhere.

  1. Crikey! Are those really the search terms that led some people to via negativa? (Mine, sadly, are all very tame by comparison!) I wonder if any of these folk stayed and found their lives changed for the better. ?

    1. Yes, these are all real, verbatim searches. Of course, I do also get searches for things I do have here, such as photos of hunters’ tree stands (my single most popular post!), poems about specific tools, Viking nicknames, etc. So I hope some people go away satisfied. Once in a rare while, somebody leaves a note to the effect of, “Came in on X post, stayed to read Y — good stuff.”

  2. Nice irony. (Your blog may or may not be about the via negativa. But your post has such an apophatic approach to self-understanding consistent with that title!)
