I am a Californian, born and raised. My husband, Greg, and I Iive in San Diego, California. We have two grown sons, both married, who live in New York City. Our older son, Eric, is an artist and filmmaker and  our younger son, Jeffrey, is a composer. You can check out their work on their website, Albino Fawn Productions. We have one adorable grandson who is over 3 years old now :)  I was an R.N, for many years, and chose to retire early. I am a Christian and  active with the women's ministry at my local church. I love music, the arts, and have dabbled with poetry off and on for the past ten years.

Dear Soupers, 

If you go to my poems today, it claims I have turned off commenting. This is NOT the case, and I cannot seem to correct it! I have tried and do not want to appear to be rude in this matter! Hopefully PTS team will get on this soon. Maybe I’ve been hacked during “cyber Monday”?

You've probably blocked yourself from commenting. Check your blocked poet's list and see if your name is there. :-)

I just checked it, and I somehow must have have blocked myself! How in the heck did that happen?!!! That was! Thanks, PST! :)

Sometimes I wish I could block myself from commenting. More people should employ that device :-)

Laura, I think it is okay as I was able to leave you a comment on your Raindrop poem today and just checked again, it was fine ~
