I have been a part of Poetry Soup since 2009, and have made wonderful friendships, and been inspired beyond what I had could have ever imagined .  As a novice poet when I first joined up, I have learned so much, thanks to all of you.  Thank you for the many gifts of poetry, challenges, and inspirations.  But especially for the friendship and encouragement offered here. Thank you all, very much !


Thank you all !!

I am sorry to have been away from the Soup so much these past few weeks, with only a chance here and there to write, to comment or acknowledge those who extend a hand in friendship.  But just wanted to make sure the holiday doesn't slip away,  without wishing each one of you, regardless of where you are, which faith you believe in, your circumstance, or nationality, a wonderful season of good will, friendship, and warmth. We are family, and I am so grateful to have had the chance to meet you all, to know some of you on a personal level,  and call you "friend".  Thank you for this most wonderful gift of friendship.  Blessings of the Season to all and Good things in the New Year!
