    Hi Wilma, I think you wrote this for a lot of us. We seem to get wound up with so many things that it seems normal. Love the way you tell the story though. What happened to your sweet face?

    Hey, this seems to go along with some themes of some other recent poems of yours. I sure hope you are not feeling shackled, dear girl!! I enjoyed seeing a senryu from you today.

    Wilma, do what I do, go to the beach strip naked and just let life flow over your body, very invigorating....David
