Very nice, the thought of a "friendly Church mouse" and her chanting.
There were times when "quick" meant really quick and this place, especially "Open" was much more alive than now. Your presence is much appreciated, dear Mr. Martini, you have brought some fresh winds. We come here to share our inspiration, but also to be inspired. There are personalities who are not "easy", but then to a certain extent none of us is ... With reciprocal respect we can get along as it is recommended in the rules. I do invite you to resist, there are too many who peek in and disappear too quickly, probably the ego is fragile and is easily disappointed when applause or even only appreciation isn't satisfying.
Besides great poetry, you have written many sensitive, wise and lovely comments also on other people's works. You do understand the spirit of this place.
Thank you for that.
"Many things need to be done", no doubt!
I am sure you are able to be a multi-task man, contemplation included.
Do you hear? The mouse squeaked!
