kind, curious, silly and shy
sister of two brothers, much older than I
loves music, dancing, nature and Labradors
who hopes optimisically, ponders reflectively and hordes sentimentality
who fears not being remembered, man's moral decay and this progressive disease
who would like to see all the wonders of the world, peace among nations and honesty in all human faces
resident of life's flowing waters

Not gone, just lagging

Howdy fellow soupers,
  I haven't been around for a few weeks, not that you'd notice.  LOL, anyway, just having a hard time finishing any writes.  That and life matters to attend to.  I've had some trouble with wrist and neck pain, but I get on when I can to read and comment.  Hopefully the dam will break and words will begin to flow again soon.  I  just want to say that I have truely enjoyed all the congratulations and lovely comments from everyone!  I have recently made a chapbook of my first poems I wrote.  I've sold three---woohoo! All well, it's not about making any money.  I am excited to share my poems!  May the river of inspiration flow freely for you all.

    I also have been gone. So sorry for the pain you have. I can sympathize - I got arthritis in my neck when I was 32 because of an accident. I am so used to the pain I don't notice too much any more. just cannot turn my head.
