City of Roses
Yay! Oh Balladeer, we're all sooooooooo proud of you and blessed by you continuing to grace these robin-egg blue pages with your warmth and compassion in your epic heartfelt poems, to your uncanny, unmatched sense of humor that shines incandescently in your rhythm and rhyme with Toerag and LongJohn, to the depth, thoughtfulness and empathy that comes through in your discussions on many topics and issues (even while we may often disagree, I am sooooooo blessed to have the opportunity to talk with you ever so often and so highly respect you for sharing your voice to the world and always giving evetyone the place to speak, yay! )
I am most blessed not only to know the special, wonderful friend you are, but also to appreciate the unique voice of your heart that speaks volumes in all the great poems and lyrics you write. You may never immediately recognize how you have inspired me these past five-and-a-half years, but believe me, you have to the depths of the bottom of my heart!
God Bless You, dearest friend, and congratulations on 17,000 wonderful posts, yay! (does the Balladeer bebop)
