Thank you Ron!! Got mine right here within arms reach, trying to figure out who's going to get a copy. (and wishing I'd asked for an autograph. I'll pretend you wrote something special to me in invisible ink!

Mine was waiting for me after class... you know, I've been published three times, twice with PiP, but it never ceases to amaze me. I couldn't help but run my hand over the pages, thinking "Look what I did.. look what we did.."

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Only 6 days and the books already arrived on this side of the ocean. January 21st 2004 is now known a P-day in Europe. Thanks for everything Ron... one little questions though. Why did you sign my copy with invisible ink? Now I don't know which copy to keep, or... or... don't say! Of all people you forgot to sign mine?!?!?!??Arrghhhhhhhhhh.

Didn't I mention I signed ALL books in Ron's name using invisible ink? So you see, all your copies are signed. Ain't that Justin Genius?

Hey Munda, your postman did come early then, oh gosh, that means mine will maybe be here this afternoon.

Hope he doesn't have to ring twice, my postman, but come to think of it, I don't even have a door bell He'll just bang the door.

LOL I'm getting nervous as of now.

Nan, stop that smirking at the Dutchies! Your car told you to do that, I know, because he did't like me that much

Munda, I'm sure your genius has lost itself in poetry! and I'm still nervous.

Well, I din't hear the door bell ('cause I don't have one) and I didn't hear banging on my door today, meaning I will be awake all night long. It's just like having a birthday isn't it.

Mommy Muys is sending her love and hopefully I will rush over to her tomorrow with a precious gift in my hand.

Night night everybody, it's this Dutchies way overdue bedtime.

Ron, a special thank you comes from the lady I've worked with this past year and half, who loves poetry and is a very fine artist partially disabled from an auto accident. She got up yesterday at 5:30 AM and sat in her chair reading Reflections before her AM routine, and said she felt honored to be gifted something so very, very special. And indeed, she has received a unique gift from many sharing hearts.
So I'm thanking all the passionate people who contributed to this book, and especially to you, Ron, for letting me share this gift.

Thank you dear Ron, my books have arrived yesterday. Perfect protective shipment btw.

I came home late, rather tired after an extremely busy day, and my only aspiration was to go to bed ... and I did! Together with “Reflections of the web”! .... And to my surprise the beautiful book and the inspiring poems kept me awake for quite a while ....The evening has been great. I was especially touched by your poem Ron which concludes the book, as I had not seen it before.

A quite special feeling arouses when reading the poems and the author's names ... the closeness between many of the poets is deeply felt.

In conclusion, I am happy with it and it will always have a special meaning, bringing back beautiful memories.

Thank you Ron!

Love, Margherita

Mine are not here yet, and I am pouting.  They got them in Holland already, do you suppose they think I bought mine on eBay and are holding them with the rest of my stash?  Now THAT would be just my luck!  I am sure enjoying all the excitement of people getting them, this is so much fun!

Well, well both Dutchies in The Hague have got them already. I'm beginning to wonder if this postman knows there's another Dutchie biting her nails right now down South.

Ron, you did tell him to go through the famous Westerschelde tunnel, did you?? Because the boat is history. I could imagine that if Justin Genius has showed him the way, he could well be standing on that shore, waiting...and waiting...and waiting

Another sleepless night I guess.

Ron,

my book arrived safely in Singapore too.

thanks for everything. i am now suffering from writer's block as i am skeptical as to whether i can really make a difference with my words...but Reflections on the Web revitalised me and i feel recharged and committed to honing my point of view as best as i can.

Sunny one! The mere thought! All I did was inform the Canadian Postal Service what will happen when Mysteria laughs and we all know she will when her books arrive...

Titia... mphm... Westerschelde you say? Are you sure it's not Oosterschelde?

So, JG, just what are you saying?  That our Mysteria will not be able to contain herself and may accost the postal carrier?  Oh my heavens!!!!  I hadn't thought of that!

Perhaps I didn't leave my own mark
but a sister of soul of mine did embark
and she read the missive, loud and clear,
couldn't hardly type for the tears in her ears...

But I'm getting old, though I must refrain
from telling others I've only half a brain
for the other half has been used up by kids!
So don't be asking what was, or what I done did.

Indeed you did warn of this perilous matter,
it probably made the postal men scatter!
Looking for waders, I'd wager, I'd bet!
before into Mysteria's hands they'd let

that book come true, from pages blue
wherein lies the genius of all of you!

LOL can't you see me smile

I GOT THEM TOOOOOOO, ALL 10 BOOKS

The postman didn't drown in the Westerschelde after all.

Justin, YES Westerschelde tunnel, the Oosterschelde has a bridge. You should come and see for yourself, it's 6,6 km. long and about 60 meters deep. Still, I miss 'my' boat.

And Ron, you made a dream come true for many of us, thank you

On behalf of my mother, Linda, I want to thank Ron for all of his work in co-ordinating the creation of these beautiful books! When they arrived this afternoon, I took the package straight to the hospital so I could open it in front of Mom; we spent the next hour or so reading the wonderful stories and poems inside to some of the other patients! It was like an impromptu poetry reading in the Medical Surgical Unit, a nice change of pace for everyone.

Thanks again, Ron; they're really great quality - inside and out.

Shannon, please give your Mom a hug for me.
Just tell her it's from Ethel Mae. Okay? And
tell her that we all love and miss her, too!!

And, Ron, I gave my Mom and Dad their book
Wednesday and I thought my Mom was going to
read for hours.......after she looked through
the book to find her "little girls" poems. LOL
She was grinning from ear to ear when she read them.
She wanted to know why I didn't put two of the  poems
that I had written for her and my Dad in there. LOL
