Goodbye


Blog Posted:4/3/2013 2:49:00 PM


Hallo Soupers!


Due to unforeseen circumstances I have to bid you Goodbye. Thank you for your support and friendship these past months. It meant more to me than you could ever imagine.


I will try and finalize the contest, Grook, in a few weeks time. I am sorry about the inconvenience.


Love & Peace

Su

    Poetry comes from my soul. I had left the last poem up (deleted a string of haiku to this end). It sums up my life up till this point. I need time to take stock, but I will be back. No, PD, I am not closing my account here with soup - will be back, God willing and if I am not swinging for someone (who had done me a dirty....)...lol Luv ya all >>> Mwah!

    Im going to miss your "rebellious" personality. Many times I was not in agreement with your views and when my opinion was a little out of tune, you answered to me as I deserved it (particularly when I was "bored") ... and believe me: i like that. : ) So, what Im trying to say is ... be back soon, Suzette Crous! : )

    Whatever is calling you away, must be of great importance, ...and we do understand that "life" and personal commitments come first, however your talent, friendship and love of poetry will be greatly missed....so I do hope this leave is temporary.....(and I pray that it isn't because of someone's unkindness.....which has often been a problem). Good luck and hugs to you, Su !

    Sorry to hear that life has dealt you something and praying that, whatever it is, only good come of it. You brought something unique to Soup and it is sad to see you go, but I am grateful that you found a way to say goodbye. Some just disappear... Hope you will come back, at some point, and (as Chris said) many Soupers do wander back in, on occasion, tell us things are going. Hope you can do that, eventually, when the sea calms. Hugs to you, best wishes in all your writing endevours... :) Cyndi

    Well, I don't like to say goodbye, so I'll continue to 'say' "Hullo/Hallo". I hope you tackle wotever it is that is bothering you. Hey, maybe I'll 'see' you here tomorrow or the next day? Not too many people ever truly-truly leave PS(some people even change pen-names and merely pretend to have left).
