    One of my best friends who passed away 5 yrs ago was a genius and developed many patents for amazing discoveries...she was never MAD yet she was definitely OVER driven in many ways. Her passion for excellence drove her a lil over the edge. This senryu is great! A stick of dynamite! Gwendolen

    and THIS is why I always come back to the Soup Kitchen! Good stuff Buddy! And yes, I was away for a while from my hobby site. BUT I will NEVER take a break from writing. On top of other projects I have written a few dozen new poems...many of which are not soup appropriate...oops! I did put one new one up tonite, and I will do some more. Thanks for checking on me! ~JSLambert

    Wonderful Carolyn!!! You're so right, sometimes both seems seamless! Great Senryu, my dear friend! A puity that I still have these problems with right arm and hand and now also a problem with my left shoulder! Thank you so much for your kind comments and congrats! Love, Gert

    I often wonder where my division sets dear with regard my writes that is ! This is a "genius" Senryu Carolyn, one for us to muse over, sipping on our morning tea and dabbling with thoughts for writes ! Awesome love ! I had a wonderful time reading you this morning dear Carolyn ! Have a wonderful week my dear friend ! And here the rain is ah soaking everything ;)....much love, james

    Clever write, Carolyn! I think for some these are can be co-related. Known people who I'd found to be genius, but they felt like social rejects.:( There might be a fine line between both? Success hadn't made them happy campers. Anyhow, best wishes to you and yours, love, Mikki
