Listening to every heart
On June 21, 1999, I came to a decision to make a change in my life...by June 25, 1999, I was ready to reach out and see if I could revive one of my "lost" loves...poetry...
Using a search engine, google.com, I came upon a premier website, Passions in Poetry.
The quality and character of the people in the website, even though in it's infancy, was amazing. The honesty and truthfulness of the people there reached out through the monitor and hugged one!
Some of the characters I first came across were Alwye, Balladeer, Ron, Nan, PoetdeVine, doreen, and a few others. What an impression they made!
And wow, were they honest! Have a question? You'll get an answer! Make a mistake? You will be carefully guided to not making them again!
Ron's family...what a treasure! Could I have hoped, a year ago, to stumble on to anything more loving and caring than the people here, I could not have imagined it! Only in my wildest dreams.
Truth be known, because of PiP, I dream even more now! And while my poetry may not be star quality, all of the folks here who take the time to read, respond, and help me and made it well worth my while to be a part of this family.
So, Thanks, LD, for letting us share with others how we came to be here. Long live Ron's World!
