Passions till I die!
*sticks up fist*

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

Well, this is a nice tribute to Sharon, an awesome poet and sweetheart of a person and friend. I came here accidentally, and got so much wonderful support and friendship that I had to stay. Even when I have no words to write, I come and read at least several times a week, I can't stay away. All of you have pulled me through one of the worst emotional times of my life recently, and I will always appreciate and love you for it. I hope Passions is here forever! When we are all old and gray,(oh wait, I already am ) we will still be boosting eachothers morale, and comforting the sad, and writing some DAMN good poetry in the process.
Love to you, Sharon, and keep posting..

PDV you mark the occasion in style. I remember the blue pages I am that old. Nan invited me there becuz it was a "secret" site and I was so thrilled yuh yuh. I didn't like it much so I stayed at the, already by then, established forums. It's all just grown and grown and i love it. What passions means to me is a place to stretch my wings and fly. Boy has my poetry grown as well as my understanding of others yuh yuh. Love you all!

And now while the cat (Sharon) is away, I want to throw my few cents in here as well.

I came to Passions in early August of 1998. I was member #689 to join. At the time, Passions almost seemed overwhelmingly large. (Little did we know!) Open Poetry had yet to have a “#1” next to it, and many of the other forums – such as The Corner Pub, English and Poetry Workshops, etc., had yet to come into existence. Staying on the first page of Open didn’t require the ruling of a Floridian court, though it still wasn’t easy! But as Ron said, there was an air of caring about the place. Instead of feeling like a battlefield, like many of the other bulletin boards do, PiP seemed more like a Little House on the Prairie story!   I posted my first poem, and out of two people to respond to it (we didn’t used to have that nifty flashing folder which lets everyone know the person’s a new user) Sharon was there. And that seemed to set a precedent. I think very few have slipped her grasp since then – and always her responses have been encouraging and uplifting… even to the point of almost embarrassment! (Me? Embarrassed? Is that possible???)

It wasn’t too long after that that Sharon and I started speaking on ICQ. We had an instant connection – I was the bad boy, she was the good girl… Ok, so she’s not that good, but she plays innocent really well! Sharon has been not only one of my staunchest supporters through many fiascos, and countless dramas, but she’s also been one of the biggest encouragements in my life when things start looking down. She has always been there to pick me up, to chat, to joke, to knock some sense into me, whatever.

And yes, as Ron also said, she’s a secretive person – But I think that too has lifted a little as the time has gone by. I’d like to think that I’ve been able to return some of what she’s given me, and that this amazing woman has been able to find some comfort in my silliness and devout admiration of her, her talents and her attitude. She is one of, if not the most honestly caring and nice people I’ve had the honor of knowing. And even if you put that aside, she’s witty, intelligent – has the BEST and most ideas of anyone I’ve ever known. All in all, a most amazing woman. I agree with Ron – the tribute isn’t for 10,000 posts, but rather for you, Sharon, the best friend a guy could ever ask for.

Love you lady,

I'm still kind of new, and I don't really know anyone, but after reading all that, you're on my list! Someone is well-liked! Congratulations on 10000!
(That does say ten thousand, right? I'm a little tired)

....peace as a primary objective is dangerous because it implies that we would sacrifice anything for the sake of it....

Congratulations on 10,000 posts! And let me saym that even as a newbie, I am very impresed and feel very welcomed by the site and the people who reside here. I came across the site accidentally, while looking for a poem to send to a friend, and I have been here ever since, and am posting some of my own. What does this site mean to me? Well, in all my newness, so far, it has beena great place to read about people, and what makes them tick, and to find out that we are all basically the same. There is a kinship in a lot of what  I read here, because much of it could have come right from my own thoughts. So I can associate myself easily with the authors. I think I am really going to like it here - I do alreasy.
