Hi Everybody, Today I would like to introduce you to DavyD of “Inside The Mind Of DavyD Blog”
For so many of you that haunt the GO DOG GO CAFE, DavyD is an Old and Dear Friend, a charter patron at Steve’s wonderful Cafe and Never Ending supporter of our community and so many individual writers.
But for any that are new or have not had the privilege and honor to meet Davy I wanted to make sure you have a chance to meet Davy so you will be encouraged to go and check out his wisdom, his writings, his thought-provoking questions and topics and especially his poetry. Please indulge yourself in a visit to DavyD’s blog.
If I asked for a show of hands in the cafe of how many have read and commented on Davy’s poems or had him read and comment on one of your works I am sure the house would have hands raised all over the place! Our community of writers has been blessed with such strong pillars as Steve and DavyD to support us. You can prove this to yourself by looking at those poems/pieces which you have liked and then check to see who else has liked that piece, chances are great that you will see the Photo Icons of DavyD and Steve.
DavyD’s blog was the first one I followed after joining WordPress. Wow, how lucky was I? The first thing that hit me about Davy’s poetry was how awesome, powerful and insightful it was “In Just Three Lines”! I continually found myself rereading them over and over again to make sure I had gleaned everything that he put there, “In Just Three Lines”! I hope I’m not the only one.
I remember reading his poems for the first time and I ended up plowing through months of them like a box of chocolates (hey, let’s all be honest, shall we?) or binging on a season of your favorite TV show (Start back in the archives in October 2016). That’s when I became addicted to Davy’s poetry and discussion topics. Not to mention his humor. I don’t know how or why (maybe it’s British humor) but he always seems to have a way to crack me up! I have had the privilege of getting to know Davy through our comments on each other’s works and email and so when I introduce DavyD to you as My Dear Friend you will know that I am more than just a follower on his blog!
I have no doubt that many have or will have the privilege and honor of having Davy become one of your biggest supporters. Davy has been a constant and continual support for me in my time here on WordPress! I have Davy to thank for my meeting Steve in one of the comments on Davy’s questions (he loves to prod us with questions, doesn’t he?) “What time of day do you write?”. Steve became the inspiration for my “The Backside Of The Night” and the meme from that simple contact to one of Davy’s questions.
How great is it to have someone who helps facilitate an improvement in your writing, in how you see things, increases your confidence in your ability or is the stepping stone for you meeting other great writers and friends. I think we could start a DavyD version of the six degrees of Kevin Bacon! Ha!
Davy will deny this and say I shouldn’t say it, as would our Dear Friend Steve, but both of them have been a major reason why we can have the supportive and warm community and a Cafe to meet in! We all owe Steve and Davy a huge “Thank You”! And for new comers you will soon learn why both Davyd and Steve are “Beloved” by all in our community and in the Cafe!!!
You don’t have to take my word for it alone, here is what Maja of Business in Rhyme has said,
“DavyD’s questions on his blog “Inside The Mind of DavyD” have also helped get me to start making writing a daily habit”.
We are going to switch over now and start a Back Catablogging of Davy’s blog.
Here are just two of the reasons that I am so indebted to, and thankful for DavyD and his inspirational impact on me and my writing! I hope he has had/or will have the same positive impact on you!
These two poems of mine have DavyD’s poetic DNA in them, please read the ending credits and check out Davy’s original poem.
If any of you have been inspired to write a poem or other post that was inspired by Davy – Please let us see it by posting it on the Go Dog Go Cafe Blog with your comment and credit!
I am going to list a few of Davy’s works and I already know that there will be those who have their own favorites but these have been some of mine! Please visit DavyD’s blog and hand pick Your own!
But first, here is a great quote on Davy’s site from my favorite poet Robert Frost – “To be a poet is a condition, not a profession.” Now you have a comeback for all your friends!! Thanks Davy!
Let’s start out with one of Davy’s humorous but informative pieces – ADVERBS
Here Davy will prod you to think about the use of the lowly (an adverb) adverb. Just seeing Davy’s postit note photo had me in stitches. Please read this and see if you can help Davy out with his dilemma about adverbs!
The next work – OUT OF MY LEAGUE – is another great three line piece that is wistful and yearning and something most of us have done! Some have even had this dream come true? I think maybe even Davy, Davy did You? Ha!
Please see if this thought ever ran through your mind like it did for Davy.
Next we will look at one of Davy’s prodding Topic Questions – WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO WRITE POETRY? Please take time to read this, I think you will enjoy it!
This is an interesting and informative piece with research on the subject about the best time of day to write. Davy said he was intrigued to know what time of day was best for you and asked you to let him know. I think you should all consider the question with your reasons and let our friend Davy know what your answer is!
That’s what I did and after reading through the comments I had the great honor and privilege of meeting My Dear Friend Steve, from his comment on “Night’s Backside”. That comment inspired me to write “The Backside Of The Night” from which Steve started a meme. Come join in on that meme! See! Even reading other people’s comments on Davy’s blog can be inspirational and you might find a new friend like I did.
One of the reasons Davy’s poetry and writings are so enjoyable and meaningful is the inner reflections and examinations that his work calls upon you to do for yourself – no mirror required!! See what your answer might be to Davy’s – POETIC MOTIVATION: 22
Many of Davy’s pieces deal with the universal topics of love, happiness, heartaches and yearnings. You know, the ones we all love to write about, (oh well, most of us)! A friend of mine commented recently that to her, “WordPress seems like a huge vortex of romantics and lovers!” It sounded right to me when she said it! Please read Davy’s piece – MISSING. See if you have ever felt this way?
One of the fun things about Davy is that he posts things that are true, but funny too! Try this – POETIC MOTIVATION: 20.
The end of our sampling brings us to some classics from the “Davy Wants To Know Series“. After reviewing Davy’s many Question pieces (which I love!) I’m beginning to think Davy has the same curious nature as a cat. Ha!
Please be sure and read these and let Davy know Your answers! No, really, he said he wants to know your answers!
– ARE YOU A POET – Please read this and get back to Davy! Should you call yourself a poet or let others label you as such???
And lastly from a post at the Go Dog Go Cafe
DavyD lives up to his blog name “Inside the mind of DavyD” by sharing his interesting thoughts, questions and poems that are simply awesome in their depth, impact and insight.
So, If you hear a thought provoking question being asked near you in the GO DOG GO CAFE odds are that DavyD is nearby and prodding us to ponder!
I hope you will get to know DavyD as your friend too! Please make room for DavyD at your table and don’t forget to follow Davy’s blogs! And check out his Archives too!
Sunshine and Happiness to You!
The Reluctant Poet
