Where is Silent One

Blog Posted:8/11/2022 5:34:00 PM

No posts since late March.  I recently bought his book and tried to leave a review.  I could not find it again on Amazon UK.  Silent One is a PS icon...any word?

Welcome back, Silent One. You've been missed. Moments in life certainly are important, and we all understand. It's so kind of you Mark, to place this blog here. Many wonderful blessings to you. ~ Brandy

so sorry I am seeing this so late. I heard from him. He just came back and posted a poem! By the way, did you know Nette Onclaud?? She has gone MIA for a few years now.

Thanks Andrea, that’s not good. Nette has such a unique style…and charm.

I, too, am glad to see him back on line if only for a short word or two, or post. Thank you for letting us know you're still active! Thank you Mark, for this blog. Linda

Dear Mark, such a beautiful blog! Hi Silent One, your soulful presence is sorely missed! So nice to hear from Silent One, a wonderful friend and supportive mentor. I see from his replies below that he is fine but short on time, which I can totally relate to. Thank you, Mark, for myself and so many here, we're glad to see Silent One, even if it's just for a quick visit and post! Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

I finally became a lifetime member on PS after about 6 years of off and on premium membership. I still work full time at a very demanding job, leaving little time to be active on the site. But that’s slowly changing. This blog is filled with the reasons I’m here…and plan to stay. Here in lie some of the “old souls” of PS and many other members yet to chime in. Great to hear from you SO.

Mark, thank you for your kind blog and for think about me. I am fine, life is very busy, especially with work and I've started some evening classes teaching people martial arts. I have been on Instagram, but even my time on their is limited. I feel I don't have enough time to support others on PS, so I am always reluctant to post if I can't dedicate enough time for others. There are some other issues with this site also, which I will not go into, however, I will post something today and try my best to comment on other's poems... Thank you to you and every one else who has been kind enough to comment.

Maybe Team Soup could add a check box on a member’s posted poem that a identifies the visitor when checked - and could even add a “canned or customized”reply saying “Letting you know I stopped by enjoyed the read”. I don’t have time to read and comment on every visit and I believe that applies to many others on PS. Readers could still leave personal responses when time allows.

I completely understand. Most of my visits are now on my phone and time is an enemy. I may just start leaving a “happy face” just to let the writer know I stopped by. Many members are in the same situation.

Mark, I am sure Silent is fine, he posted recently on FB about his garden, he comes and goes, blessings ~Constance

Thank you for always being one of my biggest supporters since I joined the soup.. Even my garden is suffering at the moment... even more as we are in drought at the moment.

Mark Toney reached out to him. He is doing well and deeply involved with other projects. And, as Caren stated, he’ll reappear again…thanks

When our friend Silent One is ready he will be back, supporting us, reading our poems as usual; I have no doubt he will reappear again soon!

Hello Mark, I often wonder about this too! Silent One is an outstanding poet, and an inspiration for many new poets at Soup. I was touched by his support. Hope he is doing well, and will soon come back to this site where he has many followers.

Silent One is someone who supported me so much here in Soup, during my initial days of writing here. He must be okay. He might just be so busy with his work and other things. Hope he shows up... ~ Ani

Exceptional poet. I miss him as well! Sadly, so many great poets besides him(Aditi Mishra, Greg Barden, LuLoo, Chris Green, to name a few) on prolonged haitus or permanently gone from PS.

I believe Craig communicates with Greg Barden from time to time. He lives in Maine or New Hampshire, not sure. Thanks Edward

Mark I wonder that myself. I miss his exceptional Poetry. I know he is missed here on the site. He has a great following. Thank you for bringing this question to the forefront.
