Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:


and welcome to your Fuzzy Friday Open Thread with the Street Prophets group. Post your business, post your recipes, post your posts. It's an open thread so take a turn standing on the soapbox on this here corner of Prophecy Street.

I thought that this week I'd share a few photos from the concert I mentioned last week. I'll try to keep the pictures to a reasonable size.

Have you ever encountered a place that was hidden in plain sight? Have you ever walked past some building and never really seen it? Some things require a special angle of viewing to be noticed.

I'd never noticed this church before...

It seems one of the buildings on this street has a steeple.

And the entrance is far from ordinary.

There's a free concert there tonight. Shall we step inside?


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

We're early. Nobody is here yet-- just a few people setting up the venue and one tall, fuzzy fellow stopped by to deliver the concert programs and take a few photographs.

The concert begins. Two men, who had been waiting impatiently for their cue from the left side of the front row of pews, stand and move to the nearest corner of the stage and welcome us all.

Then they introduce tonight's soloist who without further ceremony takes her seat and begins to play.

The pianist is later joined by a singer.

For some pieces there's help available for turning pages.

I like to sit where I can see a musician's hands.

For one portion of the program the pianist is joined by a string quartet.

A short encore.


Don't head out the door just yet!

To the right and up the stairs, past the lovely young woman selling CDs you'll find a comfortable room filled with refreshments and friends.
