It is the gentle ache of minor remorses wetting the path as touched by rain, and though it is raw it does not chill me, rather the warmth of its encasement falls like a smooth and molten tomb only I can sense I walk through it as the cobbled street fills the concaves with my troubles my steps alter and I sway like the drunks in the candlelit days It is my way to become engrossed in this my own realm only I can sense and the ache precedes me as I engage my mind with pretty things to make me yearn, to make me turn as I gaze before, full on for a moment until my back commences to face that which is laid behind I embrace the ache and taste the warmth of even better days only I can sense
I made six stars! Thanks so much to everyone who awarded me, I very deeply appreciate it.
These are the talented and incredible people who honored me, not in the order necessarily that I received them:
A star from http://belsbror.wordpress.com/ which gave me 4 stars
A star from http://danaiana.com/ which gave me 5 stars
A star from http://adicanada.wordpress.com/ which gave me my total of six!
I also received a 7th star from another blogger who has since deleted his/her blog. I just want to say thank you to that person in case they’re still hovering about the blog world, but I don’t want to mention any names in case they’d prefer to be anonymous, since I’m not sure if they’re blogging anymore.
Thanks so much, friends!

As I’m sitting here about to transcribe Amon-Re for my Wall Grim blog, I’m wondering if I will have time to do it today, or write any poems, or write any more Grimm journals. I’m thinking that this next week, up until Friday 3rd, will be extremely busy for me. I’ll be going out of town and seeing lots of friends on various days. All good times, but they will keep me busy.
Anyway, I’m just letting you know that I’m not sure what I’ll be able to post, if I post anything at all. Also, please forgive me if I don’t have a lot of time to visit your blogs either. I will definitely try. I won’t forget you, I promise. My activity online just may be partially or fully stagnated for the next week.
That said, I wish you all a Happy New Year!
December 26, 2013
Well, I got through Christmas. We didn’t have anything Christmas related here because of varying religions and also people often have tragic memories or views pertaining to Christmas. The facility was decorated with generic seasonal stuff, mostly snowmen and Wintry things. I could have gotten out on a pass to see family, but I didn’t want to see or talk to anyone. It’s one of the main reasons why I’m in here. I did not want to celebrate Christmas when it would have been Valentina’s first. I had already gotten her some presents. She and Gary Oldman (II) are the only ones I bought for prior to all this. I would have gotten other people things, but it was still early yet. I’m kind of a procrastinator shopper, but I do put a lot of thought into gifts. When I get out, I don’t want presents. I…

This is all I’m doing today online. I just want to wish everyone a joyous holiday season, whatever holiday you celebrate or religion you practice, I hope you have peace and happiness during this time and throughout the new year. It’s been great spending 2013 with you in the blogging world, my cyber family. Blessings to you and your friends and families.
This is my favorite Christmas song, and my favorite version of it, “The Little Drummer Boy” by Bob Seger. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone do it better.
Christmas is tomorrow so I won’t be posting or be online at all, apart from posting the video of my favorite Christmas song. Can anyone guess what it is?
But here’s a couple things I want to let you know. If you look above my header you will see I’ve added a new page for my POETRY. It indexes all the titles and links to every poem on this blog. It should make going back into the archives simpler than searching through the categories, since I have over 300 poems. They’re listed from the oldest first, sort of. I had reblogged some in a strange way so the first ones are later in the list than they should be, but it doesn’t matter.
As I say on the page, I wanted to categorize them, but the process baffled me since it seemed limiting to place most of them in categories. I will eventually do this with the obvious ones like humor, Romantic Monday, poetic duets, guest poets, etc. But the rest will probably remain uncategorized. I also plan to make pages for some of my other posts, such as Random Writing and Fellow Writer Promos.
Another thing I’ve been working on for “The Journal of Wall Grimm” blog, is creating links to the journal posts each character is mentioned in. On Grimm’s blog the character directory is broken up alphabetically to a few different pages and I got through A-F so far. I’ve copied and pasted it here in my Wall Grimm Character Directory page and I will continue to do that as I make progress. I got as far as Frankie Meatball. In other words, if you look up a character, the post numbers are all linked, so if you click on the number it brings you to that post. If anyone checks this out or utilizes it and notices a number I forgot to link or if I put the incorrect link, let me know. It’s a tedious process but I like to make things as easy as possible for people, since I know there are a lot of posts and a lot of characters. I’ve also added tons of links here; you’ve probably noticed. Once I learn how to do something, I’m out of control, as you will read in the next paragraph.
Something else I did with Grimm, I went back through all the posts and added videos that were relevant to the journal entries. If he mentioned a song or a band, I added that video. Since I’ve learned how to do that, I’m out of control with the videos too. Took me over a year to figure it out. If I did it before I learned, it was a freak accident and I had no idea how I did it. And in fact, I have a video below. There’s no stopping me.
Regarding a schedule of posts, I’ve gotten into the habit of posting, on alternate days, the journal entries and Amon-Re novel posts, then reblogging here. I try to write a poem here every afternoon, but it’s been busy, and will continue to be busy until the New Year’s over, so if I neglect a day here and there, sorry about that. Eventually, I may stop reblogging from Wall Grimm, but I’ll give a warning before that happens.
One more thing I have to say about following the Wall Grimm blog pertains to some glitchy kind of WordPress thing. They are two separate blogs for the readers, but for me as admin, they’re not independent. What that means is, that if you follow Sage Doyle, you still need to follow Wall Grimm separately. I know I’ve said this before, but I’m saying it again because once I’m following you from one blog, I’m automatically following you from the other blog. I just wanted to let you know this because I’ve noticed that people have followed Grimm separately, who are following Sage Doyle also, thank you, but if I don’t follow you back from Grimm, it’s because I’m already following you from Sage Doyle, which covers both. Confusing? Yeah it is. Let me know if that’s not clear. I’m not neglecting your follows, it just means I’m already following you. This also applies to ‘likes’. My gravatar is the same, but I think it leads here, unless I comment, then clicking the comment goes to Grimm.
Doyle & Grimm – independent for readers
Doyle & Grimm – one and the same for admin
Is that symbolic?
If I had known, I’d have made a completely separate blog, but I thought I was. Ah well, I’m still happy with the progress, your patience, and your dedication. You people in the blogging community are awesome.
I’m so gratified with the blogging and the writing I’m doing in fact, that I’ve set aside the new novel I began working on for the time being, and I haven’t been submitting The Opera for a while. I’ll get back to that, but it’s not pressing on me since I’m extremely content as a writer with my activity here. After all, I’m posting my old novel Amon-Re and it’s being read. What more could I ask for as a novelist?
Last thing: “The Journal of Wall Grimm” has gotten a few more stars also, which makes six! That’s awesome. I’ll be getting to that hopefully on Thursday or some time before the New Year.
And that’s all.
So I will close by wishing you all a peaceful and joyous holiday season and a brilliant and successful New Year! Thanks so much for everything!
And…sorry Emmett Otter, but The Riverbottom Nightmare Band kicks ass.

A few things about some of the patients:
1. There’s the guy who tries to be sneaky and jerk off by me and also attempts to grope me. Well we were all up getting our lunch one day and I was in front of him, Bogart was beside me, and the guy reached around and grabbed my dick. I turned around and shoved him and said “don’t ever fucking touch me again.” Bogart grabbed the guy by the throat and pushed him up against the wall. I had to tell him to stop, I could have easily punched the guy or something, but he’s like 70, I can’t do that. Bogart let him go and he ran off and we didn’t see him for the rest of the day.
2. Sadie still asks to see my dick. But yesterday, again I said no, but Bogart finally said, “oi, ya can see mine if…

Visible within the moon and shadow as its permanence depends on time I see it broad and also narrow ancient, still, immense, sublime that confidante of Winter storms the burdened soul bearer of my seasons as the world evolves and transforms it maintains its stance and withholds reason I rely upon its hopeful leaning and mourn the day which it might fall as within its branches I see them preening and in the Spring, hear mating calls foliage shades me when Summer burns dropping yellow as Autumn turns the life it has, the life it sustains I dread to see its cut remains outside my window stands this tree a glorious and divine respite for me cease the structures, let no more arise lest I'm resolved to witness this birch's demise
I composed this poem with Susan at http://polysyllabicprofundities.com/ It’s always a pleasure to write with her, so thanks Susan!
Amidst the calling wind I turn to find you there, bating the imprints you left behind as you found your voice I watched you follow that cry churning in desperate circles chasing the sound you had forgotten remembering when your voice was strong It was then that I began to fall if only for the reaching, the sound of my own echoes were of remorse the recall of these discrepancies I search for your hand to steady me and hold me as I fall stronger than any voice in the dark the errant sounds land heavily on my heart It is this restitution which I embrace in order to continue on, calling along the way while you become the stronghold, the stage of my convictions I seek and hold the dulcet tones those symbols of your existence in my reality those things that hold me true to who I am and that voice that draws me to you
