Happy New Year…

Blog Posted:12/29/2013 11:36:00 AM
Hello supers as most of you know I have not been around in a while for family health reasons, but I thought I would combine this blog to say my premium membership expires in February and I have decided not to re-new it. I have started to delete my poems (tedious process) and have posted what I think will be my last poem. I want to say a big thank you to those who have helped, inspired and corrected my poetry. I have made lots of friends here and lots of you have my email address and keep in touch through that medium. I also wish all of you a very Happy and Peaceful New Year…

Sorry you are making this decision. I hope you stay and contribute when you can. If you leave, you will not only lose contact with some fantastic people here, but also be deprived of reading some fantastic work. Whatever you decide, Happy New Year :)
