Winter, I'm sorry to see you go. I also hope that you decide to stay. I hate to see anyone leave us. Overall, we're a pretty good bunch. Right?
Yes, Open can get overwhelming, sometimes, but LP did leave a very good reply. And, I also feel the way Blues said about CA. Some of us just don't think our writing is good enough to be in CA. I certainly don't think mine is. In fact, I don't even call myself a "poet" or "poetess".
If you do decide to leave us, I hope that you will be back soon.
