I had to find another way to say – I am experiencing bugs. Tech bugs. No need to scrub now that you have read this. You are safe. It might, however, affect readers’ ability to SUBMIT a message. Go ahead – hit the big PURPLE – please send my message now – button on the contact page to send your queries, comments or suggestions – directly. As this site is only a week old and has already had over 200 hits from 34 countries – a need for access and communication mode clearly exists!
Blue Mist, the creative and attentive designers of this site (Dean & Austin), are out in the world – growing, traveling and recreating. They will return shortly to ensure all is working well. I am on home turf adjusting to a spanking new website. IT may not have bugs, maybe it’s ME – a slow down of sorts. Well that is the technical aspect of it.
As a writer here’s my metaphorical take on it. (courtesy of Wikipedia)
In meter, caesura (alternative spellings are cæsura or cesura) is a term to denote an audible pause that breaks up a line of verse. In most cases, caesura is indicated by punctuation marks which cause a pause in speech: a comma, a semicolon, a full stop, a dash, etc. Punctuation, however, is not necessary for a caesura to occur.
There. Value added. A lesson on English usage and an exotic way of saying – I’m on pause as I figure out some things. So is my site’s full functionality. My message remains true and pure.
One more delightful connection. My name is Helena. It is from the Greek meaning ‘bringer of light’. I have the double fortune of having a famous namesake and coincidentally, caesura appears in this Latin line from Virgil’s opening line of the Aeneid:
Arma virumque cano, || Troiae qui primus ab oris
- (“I sing of arms and the man, who first from the shores of Troy. . .”)
And so, this woman and her fingers hum as they close this second post of a work in progress. Please visit again.
