I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful email responses (and the ones above) - the deep concern, the support, the reassurance, the wise advice, the humour, everything about them. Every one of them was greatly appreciated.
On the strength of that and also the wonderfully wise advice and also some introspection, and, although I feel my hurt and anger at what happened was understandable - I have realised that I overreacted in running away. I can't imagine not meeting with all of you in PIP as often as I can, nor reading and responding to your poetry, nor posting and enjoying your responses and responding to them. It is bad enough when time prevents me from reading and responding as much as I would like, but to have my own perverse pride, hurt and anger, doing that, really is just plain silly. I can overcome what happened and smile again.
Thank you my kind wonderful Pipster friends.
