The Place to Be

No
One or no other 

Place can
Reach into your heart as a writer and take you seriously.
Expressing yourself through poetry can
Sometimes be
Seen as not being a real writer or "too artistic."
Understanding fellow poets giving you critique as well as praise
Reminds you of how much you love poetry and you can 
Except that the written word can be a prosperous future for you.

    Thank you for the congratulations! I've just been gearing up in doing other craft shows with cousin because we both make things. I've started to get back into the swing of things though because I do love to write. I think it takes a little bit of a temporary break to remember what I really love.
