Hi everyone! Aside from the posting of several poems late last autumn/holiday season and a poem celebrating Marge's memory, I really haven't graced this community in earnest for the last two years.

The truth is, I fell into a period of disarray in my life where everything was going way too fast for me, and everything from my obsession with eating purely, to my desires, to my failed employment search, simply left me snowblind, and I felt I just needed to take a hiatus and make a genuine, focused effort on living and enjoying life, and I needed to have a life which, in the process, can inspire much better poetry in return.

So, I've been volunteering everywhere I possibly can since the New Year began, where I always made efforts to volunteer before surely but, because I conceded I all but certainly won't be employed until early 2010 at the earliest, volunteering was more a much-loved hobby, rather than my life blood, before, and now I'm adamantly going to and fro, from one corner of the city to another, from Loaves & Fishes to the World Forestry Center to Impact Northwest and dozens of other non-profits in-between................and life has never felt so beautiful and exciting for me! I've been acquainted with so many affable people (in fact, to the point where I see at least two familiar faces every single new place I volunteer, where it's almost as though I've become a local celebrity, LOL!), I've acquired myriads of new skills, my confidence and self-esteem are at zeniths, and I have the physical and mental energy to want to do anything I find!

Now, while I continue to go about volunteering feverishly (I just completed training to become a Volunteer Leader via the Hands On Greater Portland network and have my first two projects as a leader planned out, and am also co-organizing a forthcoming festival for the first time as well), my experiences have inspired all these new poetic possibilities in my head, which I'll be sharing here, which I think all reflect the immense energy, enthusiasm and vigor I have now! ^__^



I posted my comeback poem today, with many more to come, and just wanted to let y'all know I'm not going away, and will never truly be far away, and it is your utmost friendship, support and care that has kept me here for almost a decade now! God Bless Y'all, and hope y'all are having a delightful beginning of summer (or winter for some here as well)! =)

XOXO,
Noah Eaton

Noah, my brother, I am so glad to see you back here on the Blue Pages that you love so dearly.
I am upset to hear of your troubles, and pray that you find the peace, love, and happiness that you deserve.

I look forward to reading your works ago.

For those who have fought for it, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

Noah, I love what you are doing and you know meeting all these people and adding to your skills and knowledge will serve you well in the end.

Maybe someone of the many new people you are meeting will have a job for you soon. Happy days for you Noah and keep up the good work. I am happy to hear you on on the mend and are eating better and feeling much better. Love to you, latearrival

Thanks Bradley! (hugs)

No worries, I've made a triumphant Yurchenko vault out of that rut I was in, and in retrospect I think I allowed some sort of scarcity mindset to become ingrained in my mind, which I came to realize in time "That ISN'T like me!", as naturally I'm known for being one who has an abundant kind of mentality. So after some reflection I knew what I had to do to make the most of everything, and now I'm on a high! I feel liberated, and I don't think I've ever felt this confident and vigorous in my life! =)

I hope all has been well with you too, my friend! I have read some of your latest blog entries, and also really found that Pizza For Patriots site a most admirable effort! =)

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Awwwwwwwwwww, thanks for your encouragement, my friend! =)

I'm extremely optimistic right now. Because I'm seeing familiar faces everywhere I go now, which was the opposite for me years before where I'd be lucky to be standing inside the light rail train and bump into one old acquaintance on the way downtown, I just KNOW intuitively that both first love and job opportunities are nearby, with those promises beaconing on the horizon and scintillating across my face like a shaft of light. My next crop of poems will basically reflect that enthusiastic mood I have, where their tone will come across as really jovial, upbeat and sensual I'd say.

Hope all has been well with you too, my friend!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Hey Noah!  I will say this for you when you make an entrance - it is a BIG one!  Wow that is one big picture, I thought I couldn't find the comment button

It's good to see you back although I have been following you on Facebook, it's nice to know you have a chosen path and you are on it.  You would make a great trainer of volunteers Noah, and hope that pans out for you.

Nice seeing you amidst the blossoms, and enjoyed your pictures of the parade too   Take care.

Carpe' Diem,
Mysteria

Noah, I'm so happy to see you putting your talents to good use.
So many people think only of their own comforts and $.
You have the mindset, heart, and ability to make real positive changes in this world.
Hugs to you, my friend. We need more Noahs.

Yay, thanks Sharon! ^__^

I started using a new Nikon camera quite recently, and I've never been able to figure out how to take pictures with a resolution below 1600 by 1200 pixels! Thus, the reasoning behind why I've got that colossal snapshot up there! LOL!

Initially, I never even imagined myself starting an account on any social networking site like Facebook or MySpace. From what I had heard there was a lot of superficial content on those sites, and then I also heard news reports of sex offenders and convicts using those services to commit horrendous crimes, so I let that dwell on me too much for a long time and essentially crossed my arms and kept my distance from those sites. Eventually, however, I came to realize the opportunities these communities are replete with (helping re-connect with old friends, being able to express yourself more widely, proving useful under the social penetration theory, etc.) and realized each user is supplied with their own security settings so they can determine who can and cannot see their profiles and, because I was coping with grave social alienation at that point in time, I was depriving myself of communicative potential, and so went ahead and set up accounts on several social networking sites!

I'm just wrapping up this new poem which will be my comeback poem on the Open forum (my second overall since returning here) that is squarely set on that theme essentially: the joy and feeling of liberation I have in opening up to the world and wanting to be touched, wanting to be constantly communicating. Unmistakably, I've been an introvert and I'll always be an introvert naturally, but introverts need to feel needed no less than extroverts do, and I now realize that, consequentially, because we reside in a culture permeating with fear and insecurity, I let my fears influence my decision-making impulses throughout much of my adolescence up until quite recently. I deprived myself of much of what I've long desired, and so I declared that I would reach out and let the world touch me and I would do likewise. I think it's the most liberating, healthiest, holistic feeling in the world. And I believe that's reflected in my desire to become both a Volunteer Leader and a festival co-organizer as well.

Thanks soooooooooo much, my friend! I bet you're excited about the Olympics being more or less in your backyard in the not-so-distant future!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

(blushes) I honestly don't know how to respond to your kind words, my friend. Obviously we've gotten to know each other for quite some time here, and you yourself have given so much of yourself as well to the world, from Palestine to Alaska to Oregon just to name several places. So I'd say the world needs at least a hundred million Kacys as well, LOL! But I nonetheless thank you for your support and encouragement!

It's good to see you looking  and sounding healthier. Sometimes ( when younger and even older) you need to let some of those extreme idealistic thoughts pass you by ( like eating fads etc) and do what's best for you healthwise and for your self-esteem.

Seems like you have found yourself again. Don't worry too much about the economy and a job. Many of us went through this in the 70's and we are just in a down cycle for a bit. Volunteering does make one feel useful and is a great step to showing who  Noah really is inside.
Thank you for doing all that you do. We could use a few more like you in this world.

Noah, my friend, you are one of a kind. You took the blows and now you're doing it your way. The wonderful thing about you is that you always remain optimistic and positive, no matter how the cards are dealt. They say that the road to success is finding what you love to do and doing it. Sounds like you have done that and I have little doubt it will make you successful. I wish you the very best, pal..

What a pleasant surprise to see you posting, Noah.  Love your pictures and the thought of your energies being used so productively, but then you always were.

What a wonderful world it would be if you could be cloned!

Awwwwwwwwwww, thanks Maureen! (huggies)

While I still unequivocally stand behind my decisions to shun additives like High Fructose Corn Syrup, Partially Hydrogenated Oils and excitotoxins out of my meals every day, I nonetheless am adamant about making sure my stance doesn't evolve into a sort of martyrdom that ends up affecting relationships all around me, as that is when such decisions can truly become tragic and counterproductive to sustainable living! You're right, that would be extremely idealistic in that case.

I'm actually not worried at all about my future career-wise down the road, in spite of the deep recession presently. I've always believed good things come to good people, and even if the "American Dream" nostrum has become somewhat outdated and is in need of revision, I nonetheless believe, invariably, through hard work and perseverance, everyone is rewarded in the long run. Faith is our greatest beneficiary in that regard.

Hope all has been well with you, yay!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Yay, Michael! (huggies)

I believe the same can be said about you, my friend. You certainly have coped with some adverse health issues as of late, and while such adversity could daunt and discourage many, did you let it affect the special person you are at heart? No! You kept your head up, took initiative in taking the proper steps to allow yourself to heal and take it easy, and you've emerged the same jovial, good-humored, empathetic man we all know, love and cherish!

It's great to hear you're feeling significantly better, my friend, yay!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Yay! Linda, my dearest angel friend! Of course angels always stick together!

Though I've certainly had many great times before, I truly believe I've never felt this vivacious in my life to date. I can't even remember the last time I felt really tired, or even modestly tired, whereas before, even when I found myself less tired and more resilient than most, there was a time of day where I felt like "calling it a day". Now, I never feel tired. I'm restless, full of aspiration and stamina, where I can't even sit in my chair through a full movie without feeling like getting up and doing something more active in the community. I'd get up at 7:30 AM, make the hour-long jog over to Studio Concepts and spend thirteen consecutive hours helping decorate floats for the Portland Rose Festival's Grand Floral Parade, make the hour-long jog back home, and I won't feel tired one bit but rather eagerly anticipating the next day's opportunity. It's a very fulfilling, sensual, motivating feeling!

All my new poetry will reflect that incandescent feeling in me. I think, for a while, my poetry leaned heavily toward the maudlin. Certainly I believe it's wonderful to be very sensitive and sentimental naturally, but I feel I veered too heavily toward pensiveness. With pensiveness comes a form of mental rigidity, I find, and it consumed me within much of the previous one-and-a-half years or so. In contrast, my new poems will feel very loose, sexy, frolicsome, kinetic, buoyant, etc. I think many have seen me all these years as a very sentimental, cutesy person with flashes of the above characteristics. I'd say my new poetry is kind of the inverse of that: where the more buoyant, saucier side of me plays the dominant role, but everyone can still unmistakably see the light of sentimentality in my eyes as well!

Hope all has been well with you, angel friend, yay!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

(does happy dance) Yay, Kit, it's great to hear from you!

Believe it or not, I'm currently on break during jury duty, and I'm not lying when I say I'm actually blessed to be taking part in this long-standing, constitutional effort. I know virtually everyone dislikes jury duty notices and would rather be at least 1001 other places in the world, but I see it as having something to do and giving back to the world in a different way. When I raised my hand after an attorney asked if anyone was seriously glad to be there, he literally said he was "blown away" by my admission! (rolls on floor laughing)

I guess it's because I'm in a harmonious place right now where even the most seemingly mundane, unromantic things feel inspiring and fulfilling to me. I haven't even fallen in love or anything, so I can't begin to imagine how I'll feel when that day comes. I guess volunteering frequently in a limitless breadth of capacities makes me feel very alive and getting to see so much more of the world, and considering virtually everything I've done is in Portland, yet I've met all kinds of new people and acquired all these new skills and experiences, it makes me feel all the more effervescent knowing opportunity is bouncing everywhere like prisms incessantly!

And I also can just feel in my bones that both first love and greater opportunities are on the horizon as well! I have immense faith of that because in just three months I've went from feeling like Paul of Thebes in the confides of my own home socially to suddenly being recognized and noticed everywhere, from shyly tackling one volunteer opportunity and now going so far as to help co-organize and plan a festival that will launch later this summer and still finding time to commit to other volunteer events simultaneously that sometimes take up more than twelve hours any given day! It's testament to how a determined heart is all one needs to thrive!

Hope all has been well with you, dearest friend!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Wow! I want some of what you're having! Nothing like a natural high! Your exuberance and enthusiasm for life is downright ecstatic! You certainly are packing a lot into every day! You are doing something with your life. You are giving selflessly of your time and energy to helping your community. You are an angel extraordinaire!

Yay, Margherita's here! (huggies)

I've had so much fun volunteering, and I've been taking pictures at virtually every opportunity I've graced. Occasionally I even film video on my digital camera at the major events I attend, and I just opened up a new YouTube channel lately (my account name is EmmanuelEndorphin) featuring a series of excerpts of video footage centered around my time decorating floats for the 2009 Grand Floral Parade at the Portland Rose Festival!

The 2009 Waterfront Blues Festival opens tomorrow, and you can expect me to film a little video there as well! I'll also certainly have video for Yoshida's Sand In The City and maybe a few more events!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Awwwwwwww, thanks again Linda! (huggies)

Five of my next six weeks are going to be blockbuster weeks for volunteering, and I'm super-psyched about how active I'll be at many of Portland's largest annual traditions. I'll be giving 44 hours over the next four days volunteering at the Waterfront Blues Festival, then next week there's the 3rd Annual Columbia Slough Clean-Up, followed by three fabulous days at Yoshida's Sand In The City, then four days at Portland's BrewFest the week after that (I don't drink, but Portland is known for being a major microbrewery city and as long as the volunteering opportunity doesn't discriminate, I won't discriminate either! ) followed by another four days at the Trail Blazers' Street Jam, yet again followed the next week by four days at ErosFest Northwest (which I'm also co-organizing) and finally the Mount Hood Jazz Festival the week after that! And in-between it all there are many smaller volunteer opportunities as well!

Yesterday at jury duty someone came up to me and said he saw me last month volunteering at Potluck In The Park, LOL! I can't believe how seemingly ubiquitous I've become in my hometown............it's starting to get a little creepy, LOL!

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton
