San Diego, CA, USA
I thought you said you closed this topic? Well, I'm glad you didn't!
I'm very proud to be here at Passions (even though I am back at extremely diminished capacity from my old days, the first month and a half I was here... ) When I first came, I could just barely keep up with all the poems being posted in Open #6, and could single-handedly reply to everything in the used-to-be-slow-and-small Corner Pub. I could even easily come up with welcome poems for all the new poets posting there. But it's like the Pub has swelled from the size of Nowheresville, population >10, to something respectable like Los Angeles (population A Whole Lot). You're absolutely right, the Passions Forums have become something else...and even though I can't keep up even with the Corner Pub (whose description is now invalid--there is a HUGE crowd posting there now), I'm still proud and happy to even look around at this great place Passions in Poetry has turned into.
And even though the poet-posters are the ones that deserve the congratulations, a whole lot of that has to be for you, Sharon! (Don't mind if I call you that, do you?)
It'd be nice if you'd come back and moderate the Corner Pub sometime too, if it's not too much...
This is one proud little dragon!
