Once there was a day....dull like all my days back then, but not sad, only dull and guilty-feeling like depression makes for you when its really got you by the throat......

Id been looking at my last poem, or what I thought would be my last....a Choka style poem...an extended Tanka, actually....out of pure ennui I looked up the word online, and followed the link to a site I remembered seeing before, where a choka chain was going, led by a woman named Sunshine, and friends talking to each other along with it....it felt so nice reading that thread, I wished I could show them mine, wished I could talk to them too,  but you had to join in order to post, and I am almost terminally shy.....after a while I got brave enough, and did join, and talked to them, posted my poem, named Japan.......

That was four years ago, tomorrow.

I believe the operant term might be, Wow........

I just went back and found that thread also wow. I remember being that guy.....I do.

PiP, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for this thread:

It may have saved my life, and it oh-most-certainly did change my life.

NOW....

I understand.  A "wow", indeed.  I was just moments ago encouraged to find yet another poet of some time here at passions and saw a few stars twinkling in the archives, clicked, saw a post of mine at top with a very recent date and thought, "what the..."

and there you were.



And aren't we so very glad, and pleased?

Dang good thing I'm not wearing buttons.





Happy A, bro.

I just looked back at that first poem...still one of my best, though I've written something like six hundred since that "last poem ever" found these blue pages.....

Congrats on the four year anniversary, Ed! I don't know you that well, but it's been great having you around.

I hope someday you get the chance to live like you were dying....

I don't know very many people very well here....penalty of my own shyness I suppose, but that's how I am. But even I get worked up to hello eventually..... hello!

Thanks for sharing your story Ed...
You are so much a part of PIP, that I would not have thought it only four years.
Congrats on four years.
Thing is...you have given that same support right back to each of us...
Thanks Ed.
