Hello everyone  

I just became a member of your site and wanted to tell everyone hello and how impressed I am with everyone's work and everyone's posts so far. I'velurking around for a few days reading and reading, but due to the high emotional content of almost everything, it feels like the only right thing to do to let ya'll know I'm out here peeking in at your lives.  So hello...and let me tell you a little about little ol me if that's okay.

My name is Carrie, I live in Michigan, I'm 23 (oh shoot make that 24, its my birthday today!) I have a 6 month old daughter and I really like poetry, mostly because I've always been baffled at other peoples' abilities to express themselves so beautifully.  Lately my life has been a little confused and difficult and I've started writing partly for sanity but mostly with the goal of one day producing something worthwhile.  I could never write for school assignments, especially the poetry ones, so I am definately an amateur. I guess I came to this site looking for inspiration, direction, and maybe some compassion somewhere down the road...and seems to me I've found all of the above in the short time I've been here.

Anyway, hello and thanks to all who are poets already and have created such a wonderful place.
I'm looking forward to more slow days at my job so I can read more  

See you around,
Apachecat

Welcome to Passions! Happy Birthday!  I hope that you will soon decide to test the waters by posting a poem - we don't bite...anything other than birthday cake!

You will find that there are some warm, wonderful human beings that are in charge of their computers, and not vice-versa.  We make this site work for us....trust me on that one!

So get out and read, respond, enjoy, and soon, show us what you can do.  We all had to start out somewhere - some of the luckier ones have started here!

Hello Carrie. Welcome and a very Happy Birthday!

You surely came to the right place for introduction and to get to know others. Passions in Poetry is indeed a great place to hang out and find friends - to write, learn and play.

Have fun and I'll be seeing you.

I'm certain that you'll grow wonderfully here, at Passions in Poetry.  I know that when I came here my ego was swollen from life in an isolated little city where I'm the only poet, therefore renowned among peers as the "best poet."  What a wakeup call this website was.  
You'll grow, trust me.  I know that I have.
I look forward to seeing some posts by you and maybe someday even your daughter.

Howdy Carrie. Thanks for popping by the Lounge and perusing the various poetry forums Ron created for us. If you have any questions, I'm sure our moderators and deputy mods will be more than happy to assist you. Also, if you wanna learn different poetry styles and formats, don't hesitate to pop by the Poetry Workshop. Nan, a beautiful poet and teacher, heads that forum, and is always full of info.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you make full use of all the info this entire site has to offer.

Pax Poeticus!
