Beautiful Word Clouds

I found this lovely Wordle gadget over at Tim Green's blog. Of course, I had to try, so I plugged in my work-in-progress book of poems and just as Tim says, the simile is one of the most used devices in poetry.

For those who are curious, I used the Mac's Grab application to take a snapshot of the window and then cropped out the extraneous details, resulting in the lovely .jpg you see above.

I am not dead.

Really. I think I just needed a much longer break than even I expected. Even now, my subconscious mind is telling me to shut off the computer and go eat chocolate. Detach. Let go of technology.
