    Dear Catie....I'm so sorry to hear this news! We have lost so many of our brightest stars and stellar poets these last couple of years. But I do understand that sometimes everyone needs a fresh start. I too, often miss the old days, when I first joined PS. I wish you only great things, inspiration and enjoyment in your new poetic home. Please do let us know how you are from time to time.....okay? Good luck, God Bless...and a big hug!! Love, Carrie

    Despite our political differences Catie-----screw that, because you are a love, that's one thing soooo easy to see. Some of us poets, despite our fierce bravado at the surface, have an underlying insecurity which makes us more defensive on one hand and more aggressive and self protective on the other and sometimes more submissive, retreating, hurt, unforgiving and forgiving----so many emotions that we become confused and vulnerable---actually to ourselves-----but all of that is what makes (at least poets) special, because we are able to release our feelings into words--and release is good. If it means anything at all--Love ya & Hugs--sometimes it's good to lean against the wind and say no!

    oh Catie please reconsider, if this is because of that form-fanatic's blog please know that not everyone agrees with her. imagery and emotion trump form every time. If you feel you must leave then please know it has been my pleasure to know you here on the soup, you are one terrific lady and poet

    Oh shucks, Catie :(-- what a way to be here in Soup right now--you're really leaving?! I was passing by Soup now to thank you for my wonderful placement in your contest -- I was honestly surprised with my placement, thank you very much. I was so moved by your poem, I failed to comment there, now I see they are all gone :(....And I haven't even gotten to read your poems posted here lately. I'm sorry for not being able to. I will check you out at AllPoetry , ok? And you know I will be in touch with you...Again my heartfelt thanks for my placement, I will miss you here but I am glad we can still keep in touch. Sending you hugs...

    I want to thank you, Catie, for bringing out that write in me. I don't think I could've written that without your brilliant poem. Your poem was so emotional for me, I read it and I couldn't Not write something. I will see you around, ok? Love right back to you.

    yes, Nikko, we will keep in touch. Your placement in my last contest was well deserved. It seemed to me that you pulled out my own emotions and gave your own words to it. It was a beautiful. Congratulations again. :) love and hugs, Catie :)

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Catie, I know I don't keep in regular contact with you... we've souped a couple of times.... but I've always been touched by your words, and you bring such REASON to soup. Your opinions are strong but always always tempered by kindness, unity and an understanding that we are all hopelessly flawed. This saddens me a great deal....and I'm not trying to make you sad, too... obviously, you feel pulled to another direction. Your GENUINE warmth will not be replaced, nor will your unique style and voice. Can you at least stop by and visit? I will try to find you at AP... drop you a smile now and then. You are such a sweet lady. Your friend, Cyndi
