i know people hate a melodramatic exit from pip but rest assured, no politics, pissing or moaning. i just couldn't leave without a goodbye.  i won't say i'll never come back, it's a very hard place to let go of, but there's an overwhelming feeling i'm out of place.  as it's impossible to keep away from some of the incredible poets/poetry gracing these pages, i'll be lurking and reading when i can. thank you for the refuge, friendship, support, laughs, discussion and understanding you've given me over the years. take care of yourselves and keep reading and supporting the many underated or burgeoning poets the site has to offer. best wishes, take care all

~ Έως ότου συναντιόμαστε πάλι
~ Jusqu'à ce que nous nous réunissions encore
~ Tot wij opnieuw samenkomen
~ Bis wir wieder treffen
~ Fino a che non veniamo a contatto di ancora
~ Hasta que satisfacemos otra vez
~ Até que nós nos encontrarmos com outra vez
~ Until we meet again    

Enjoy your summer Raph.

I know the feeling, Raph.
Need a place like this
but somehow don't seem to fit.
And the folks I can relate to dwindle by the day.  Rats.
Hope you find ears for your voice, Sir.
'Tis the unspoken lonely challenge of the poet.
Have enjoyed your perspective and your talent.

Oh man, you know I have been gone for like a year and this is what I get?  Sheesh, nothing short from a Canuck . . . you feel out of place?  My God, I have caused so much ruckus in here . . . just write butthead!

Raph's reply:  Write?  ha!  What is that like?  

Sue:  umm . . . get a piece of paper and a pen . . .

Raph:  I don't have time for that, I need to start working on my wish . . .

Sue:  I already told you a hundred times, it ain't gonna happen!

Raph:  I can have hope . . .

Sue:  See?  I knew you were positive all along . . .

See what you have done?  Now I have to talk to myself!  (as always) but hey . . .

Well, you know we is always here when you need a shoulder . . . I must say I have missed you and your words and basically you.  There is no need for goodbyes, you know this.   Go see NIN, I can't go . . . and get a tan for the love of God!  *grin*  

Raph in the sun:  I am mellltingggggggggggggg . . .

Geeeeezzzz....I've been away for such a long time and now I come back and find you're leaving?????  Hope it isn't permanent although I understand the need to let it rest (as I did for the past six months or so)....part of my moodiness I guess.  And I hope you don't mind if I send Krawdad a little note here, too....to let him know he would also be sorely missed if he didn't post.  Best wishes, Aenimal......jo

This feeling I know all too well, having driven myself away on several occasions.....feeling as if there is no place here for me, that I don't fit....yet there is, and I do.

There is. You do.

Don't stay gone for keeps.

Hmmm...I'm going to miss reading your poems and lounge pieces -

It seems many people feel like they don't fit - but don't you love picking up a book that is a different perspective, a thought provoker?  It's not the same but its refreshing and welcome. That's you.

That's the culture here I think - or at least what I enjoy about PIP.

Take care Raphael -

Hey and what I'm gonna tell that poor lamb which carries your name???? Oh well, I think I'm gonna tell him that his father still loves him but needs some space to wander.

Wishing you all the best luck,

I know we've basically never seen eye to eye, but I've enjoyed our discussions (believe it or not!) and your work. I hope to see you around here sometimes. Good luck

tsk...wish you'd reconsider.

I have always found the things that don't quite fit in infinitely more interesting and intense than the things that fit too easily.

Caro Raffaele, tu sei l'uomo della passionalità qui, hai un tuo ruolo preciso, è nella varietà che c'è bellezza. Tu sei molto amato e molto apprezzato per il tuo personale modo di esprimerti ... sei un autentico poeta ... di grande qualità!
May your wishes manifest and may you realize that you are a precious gift to this circle of poets.
Take your time off if you must ...
but we are looking forward to celebrate your come back ... now!
Grazie per la tua gentilezza sempre.
Un abbraccio
Margherita
