With all the announced exits recently, I just wanted to announce my decision to stay so that everyone would know.

Well, I guess it's not really a decision, as I wasn't considering leaving anyway... but I wanted you to know that anyway, to have some good news for a change (of course that's a subjective puddle many-a-person could jump into now that I think about it).

   peace


I can't believe I spelled "wanted" "wnated"!

I never did learn when to leave a party either, Chris.

I for one want to wish you the best of luck. You've always held a special place here at PiP. I hope, in staying with us, that you can fulfill your dreams and finally find your poetic voice. I wish you all best as you remain within the safe haven of your home here at Passions in Poetry.

I'm staying too...I'll grow old here, you watch and see.

I think it's neat to develop the friendships we have and be able to touch people with words...this place is special. I could not imagine leaving.

It will be a sad day in history if this site ever shuts down for good.

ROFL...Chris, you always have to be the obstinate one, don't you?  Well, just for making a ripple in the water of peace, I think I'll join you in the river [for some reason, I've got Billy Joel's voice going through my head now with some song...] and let Dixie know that it's going to be a long time before I decide I've outgrown this place...'cause, m'friend, I keep learning more each day!

Hear Hear!!

Don't let Christopher fool you.  We made him say that.  Besides - He's got a PiPball and chain around his left ankle and his keyboard is handcuffed to his left wrist (leaving his right hand free for typing)... and - His computer has received a special code that keeps it from exiting the netpoets domain...

We send in a bucket of PiPcorn for sustenance three times a day...

LOL, as I am about to unplug this, what do I read but a bit of levity to brighten this snowy day. Yep, of course it IS snowing and wet out, since it's time to load up the car this afternoon to ship some things via el parcel posto, then head outta Denver Friday AM. Glad to read you are staying, but sounds like you have a tracking device installed, so you wouldn't get far anyway.
LOL, thanks for the grins.
a temporary goodbye to everyone! I won't be around for a while but wish everyone a fine Happy Valentine's Day and safe President's Day. Send all my replies and complaints directly to Christopher, keep him busy.

Chris!      You've been on that swing far too long! LOL.
And know what else?  I'm staying too!
Because we have so much fun here!
And besides...I haven't seen the dungeon yet!!

Wow - I figured a few, but not that many, Jamie!

oddly enough - "The Best of Bowie" is the exact reason I asked. Ran across it the other day and picked it up... he's one of those artists where I didn't recognize the name of many songs, but upon hearing, I would think "Oh, I know this one!"

Running through the list I also noticed that 'bout every other one was in a movie (whether done by him or Adam Sandler [Space Oddity]).

Of course, I didn't have to pay for shipping, so t'was affordable.

I'm with Duncan. I'm not going to miss you either!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

sadly, i remember when most of them first hit the stores - still, there are some gems to be found in the bowiefiles-- many of his songs just seem to 'work' in movie settings,, much like 'golden years' in "a knights tale"
