“You can always come home to visit and you'll be glad that it's the same old place when you do.”

I love that line above Bluesy Socrateaser .... so very true.

The poets I used to know and feel comfortable with are no longer here or if they are, they no longer respond. The places to post poetry around the cloud are falling to the wayside as of late due to the impact of personal attacks in the reviews and the advertising that slows the pages to a halt and often crashes the page. Even Facebook is fated to falter before long because of greed. Most people can't afford a new computer each year to keep up with the needed speed these days. I believe for this reason that sites like Passions may be the biggest survivors for serious as well as recreational writers to gather and rally like they did in 1999/2000 to get away from the terror of the open news groups.

That's not just your "too sense", Rex...that's the entire treasury.
In the upper right-hand corner, Ron placed the phrase, "A Family of Friends". Pining for old friends and "the poets you used to know speaks volumes as to the lack of participation and presence.
No one else will do...no group or individuals to feel "comfortable with", no new friends to meet either, eh? More preconceived impressions than extended hands...making new friends must be old news.
Humans are still humans though, Rex. What they don't know, they'll assume...and the assumptions are rarely good.
