Apologies for not responding

Blog Posted:2/2/2018 10:36:00 PM

A number of people have commented on my poems recently and I apologise for not responding. Two weeks ago I slipped on ice and damaged my arm and shoulder, making using a keyboard slow and awkward. I have responded to some but not to all. I want to thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my work, you have not  been forgotten. I am delighted poeple like my work and I do appreciate your comments.

Barry - two weeks ago I slipped on the ice getting the paper in the dark of dawn, (530A) ... I have never fallen so hard, and hurt my knee, hip, wrist, elbow, shoulder, head, and broke ribs on my left side, (where I fell on top of my left arm) ... the fact that I only broke ribs is a miracle, so I'm very thankful for that. I hope you're healing well, my friend, and can so relate. I am behind here as well! Blessings!

Barry, we get this ice called black ice in Canada. You cannot see it as it resembles the pavement and it is so easy to slip on, one day walking on the sidewalk carefree and happy, I slipped and it was not dignified or pretty, so I know how you feel, get better soon !

Sorry you hurt your arm. I know the feeling. A while back I had wrist problems making it so hard to write. Have a great weekend and I hope you recover quickly.
