Never would I have thought I would start
writing at 73 years of age. I have thoroughly enjoyed my voyage into the written spirituality of poetry and am thankful for the opportunity.  In my four years here I have met many new and wonderful persons. Having them accept me as a friend has been a moving experience.

    Where egos are involved, this will be a difficult rule to enforce.....and yes....as Ruben said, if nothing else, we have had reason to laugh out loud, shake our heads, .... and sometimes want to throw in the towel. But I haven't given up because of many friends who wear their grown-up colors.

    Ruben, didn't you know that the convolution of evolution is revolution? Get in there and, and, and, er write a poem about it.

    Ruben O. Anytime I throw out three words over nine letter long, you have to know I am in the throes of BS. 'preciate the timely soupmail as always. Were still buddies !

    Ok...enough is enough! Without the drama-blogs, I have become accustomed to "attending" here, which will be my motivation, my inspiration, my impetus... my reason to die of laughter? Does TPS want to deprive ME of the healing effect of laughter and humor? : ) Does TPS want to destroy or interrupt my studies about the individuals and how they evolve or not (evolution and involution) in a poetic environment? : ) NO!...it's unacceptable!!

    Carolyn caught my mistake. I had not scrolled down far enough to uncover the bottom of the page, where the rest of them are posted as they have been all along. Shame on me.
