Great news everyone...with my recent publication in two medical related journals, one of the physicians at the hospital has taken an interest in my poetry. He's asked for me to put together a book of poetry for him to see and is considering financially backing it. The book is called "For Everything There Is A Season" and contains what I feel are 50 of amoung my best poems. Keep your fingers crossed gang, this may be my opportunity

Ruth~ Way to go. Who knows where this will lead too. It seems like more and more people here at Passions are getting much deserved breaks. Congratulations and I hope it works out...Paul
