I am born. . . . If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.



Two new tags on the BRP site: [sp5] for paragraph indentation and [sp] for fine line adjustments

Ever wanted to indent the paragraphs of your blogs, your news items, or your bamboo shoots entries? Me too : ) Now you can!


      Thanks to BRP webmeister Haken Pax, you can now indent your paragraphs using the [ sp5] -- with no space between the [ and the sp5] like I have here so you can see it. The [ sp5] tag gives you a five-space indentation.

      Example NOT using the [ sp5] tag at the beginning of the line:

Now is the time for all blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

      Example using the [ sp5] tag at the beginning of the line:

      Now is the time for all blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

      Pretty cool, huh? The [ sp] tag, again with no space between the [ and the sp], gives you a single space.

      And you can use the [ sp5] tag in combination with the [ sp] tag to do any single space fine adjustments you may need for poems like this excerpt from "Inheritance," by Wanda Fujimoto in the third issue of BAMBOO RIDGE, June - August 1979, Full Moon:

Inheritance

my grandmother died
                       before I had a face
she reclaims me now with silence
                and a brown photograph:
                     her kimono, hair, face
                     the instep of her turned-in foot

      If you could see the tags, they would look like this:

Inheritance

my grandmother died
[ sp5][ sp5][ sp5][ sp5][ sp][ sp] before I had a face
she reclaims me now with silence
[ sp5][ sp5][ sp5] and a brown photograph:
[ sp5][ sp5][ sp5][ sp5] her kimono, hair, face
[ sp5][ sp5][ sp5][ sp5] the instep of her turned-in foot
