Deb, I share your thoughts, but isn't it a blessing. Although you can't feel our touch, know that you are in our thoughts very much. We hope you stay till your old and gray, telling us in prose about your day. I wish for this to stay on top, and your work may never stop.

Great poem Deb! Before there was the internet, before even the telephone, there were letters. People exchanged ideas and lives and pains and sorrows through the written word (snail mail we call it now!). I like to think that Passions is more than just a connection via an ISP line...it's more like those old pen pal letters sent out with a stamp and a hope that the reader will respond. It's a connection to each others heart and soul through the written word and just because it's electronic doesn't mean it's not a personal connection. Poets and poetry lovers are united here to share each others world and if you feel we've become friends because of that, I think it's wonderful.
I don't know if you've reached out via e-mail or ICQ to anyone here. If not, I recommend it. It's a great way to talk to people! Now, I'll stop rambling and move on. Thanks!
