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 !


Apologies For Neglecting My Souper Friends!


Blog Posted:10/7/2012 1:48:00 PM
I have been out of touch for much of this past summer for several reasons, first due to being away from home, and then later, we had serious internet problems.  (Internet providers are limited due to our location......and the last one we had, simply abandoned us without notice one morning).  After searching, we found something that works to provide internet again, so I'm hoping to be back on track soon.  In the meantime, I must apologize to friends I've neglected, thank those who have commented or who have placed my poems in a contest during my "black-out" experience.  I'm so grateful for you all, and appreciate so much, the continual support and encouragement.  I have missed out on so much.....I hope you are all well, happy, and filled with inspirational words for new poems!  Thanks very much, one and all!  I can smell apples in the air....hope you will have a wonderful autumn !! Carrie

    No apology is needed Carrie. I am glad to see you back, and I'm sure there are many others who feel the same.

    I have missed you a lot, and I am so happy to hear from you, Carrie! Poetry Soup will be in full swing again when you'll return! I wish you a world of joy, and I can't wait to read more of your work. Take care and pick lots of red and yellow apples for us! Have a blessed day. Hugs, Andrew.

    Thank you all so much for your warm welcoming........it always feels like home here!!.......I am learning how addicting the Soup is ... when I couldn't even read the blogs, much less, write a poem or comment....it felt as if I had been left alone on a deserted island!!! Yes...some of us are addicted!!! I will confess!! :)
