Hello fellow Soupers!  I'm a 48 year old Scorpio woman, native Californian who now owns a small farm in the Midwest/ South, depending on whom you ask.  I love to travel, write poetry, make soap and wine, along with other things.  I am happily married to a wonderful Scotsman who spoils me rotten and makes all my dreams come true.  Stop by and leave a comment and I will certainly reciprocate!   Can't wait to get to know you through your art.

Hello everyone, just a short note to say I'm really enjoying my time with Michael!  I'm still not able to do a lot of reading, writing or commenting with my special guest in town but I've managed to get a little bit done.  I even posted a limerick for the Halloween Limerick contest!  This makes me feel so accomplished, ha ha! 

Also, my contest submissions are all in so I'm going to start judging them Monday... I can't tell you how excited I am to read the entries!  With all the talent around here it will be a delight for sure, though very difficult to judge!  Thank you to all who supported me with your entries!

Michael leaves on Sunday (pout) so I'll be back with you all and active as ever.... poems/love'>love to everyone!

Thvia

I csn only imagine the wonderful poems that you have received, and I will echo your words about the talent on this site, and that makes judging so difficult, well whatever happens I enjoyed writing for your contest, it inspired me to go deep into my soul~~Love
