I had this idea after reading some more poetry on the forum. I thought, why not have an MS book of poetry? There are so many poems on the forum that people have written that I think a lot of people could relate to, even outside of the MS community as well. I have discussed this with one of the moderators and he thought it was a great idea.
The benefits of it would be that we could have all the proceeds from the book go to both MS and to help raise awareness about SA. Also, it would give us all something positive to focus on, from a crummy situation to say the least.
I was also thinking, if there are any people that are into taking photographs or drawing etc...that we could include some of that with the book as well, maybe to match some of the poems, or maybe even a collage or something.
Of course all poems and work have to be origninal work, and I also thought it would be a good idea to allow people anonymity when submitting a poem or picture etc... If you wish to have your name in it, then that would be great, if you want your initials or a nickname, or just "anonomous" I like that idea as well in order to protect those who submit.
Anyways, let me know what you all think, or if anyone can think of any other things that maybe we could add to it. Right now the main thing is to see if there is any interest, and if anyone would be willing to participate here.
I find I have to be the sad clown, laughing on the outside...crying on the inside.
