Back from Vacation!

Blog Posted:8/8/2012 8:27:00 AM
Good Morning, World. It is so nice to be with you all again. I am back home now, from my vacation in Virginia, and then Florida. I had such a wonderful time with my son and my sister's family, times I will never forget. But here, at the Soup, you are all my extended family and really, I have missed you all so much. it is good to be home again. I am a little bummed out by the absence of so many poets that I truly call friend, I can only wonder what has happened since I've been away. Gosh, I hope they will return, maybe they are just having writer's block at this time. Especially, I miss Nikko and Chris, where have they gone. It saddens my heart to think they may have left the soup. I have heard some rumors, but you all know how unreliable rumors can be. Anyway, I love you all, and am so happy to be back. I posted a sonnet this morning, actually, it was one I wrote a few years ago, but it needed work on the syllable count, so I have improved it. I have spent some time reading and commenting, and hope to find more time to do the same. Hi Ruben! How have you been? What's up, Debbie Do? And all the rest of you too, i have missed you, please give me a little update on what ya'll have been up to in my absence. Love and hugs to all, catie :)

    Thank you, Carol! Lets all get together and try to bring back the missing. I think a real way of doing so may be to do more writing ourselves. love and hugs, Catie :)

    Hi Arild and Anne Lise! (just thought I would include you both! :)) I am considering going on a mission to bring back some of our missing poets. Sounds like it may be a real challenge. So nice to hear from you. Love and hugs, catie :)

    Hey, Ruben! so nice to hear from you! Please don't stop writing, reading and commenting. I think that's how so many of our best poets have gotten lost along the way. I struggle to write something decent myself these days, but make a point to come in and do some reading and commenting every once in a while. I hope to do more of it soon. But many of these new writers have no idea who I am. well, I will try to come up with a good contest to challenge your free verse skills. Your free verse is my favorite. love and hugs to you, Catie :)
