It seems sometimes, that I only post here when I am feeling 'down'. I think the reason is two fold.. firstly, reading other peoples poetry makes me feel 'included', I often get the sense of "oh wow, I'm glad there are other people that feel the same way I do".
The second reason is that ever since my first post (which was a complaint about other peoples perception of me), the people here have always taken the time to lend an ear, so to speak, and offer advice, and that has been what I've needed to hear and get me through, in times of trouble.
'Always polite, always caring and always willing to give'
.. would be the way I would sum up the fine folk you have here.
I feel bad about not having the time to offer the same support to others here, but I sincerely
thank you all
for all the good things you have given me, both in poetry and in support. Pip will always hold a special place with me.
