always a struggle, but your life is your
own and we should not burden you with our
selfishness.  Take care of yourself, ok?

Well, the first thing I want you to know is my respect for you to make your own decisions. The second thing I'd like you to know is I have enjoyed your writing. I have an affinity for nature and so you see also for your pen. Peace.

Bruce,

You will let us, as your poetic family,
know if we need to pray and or otherwise
guide our thoughts to anything dire in your
life; I am counting on that;

but if you simply need a vacation, and
wonder if your presence will be missed
at all, put that aside, now...for PiP
members rarely forget those who have made
an impact on our family [and chances are,
we haven't forgotten anyone!]

Time outs and holiday breaks and other reasons
are just celebratory guidelines of who we are
and who we are meant to be; and we must adhere
to reasons bigger than us at times. This includes:
irrational spouses
those unwilling to read our stuff, like co-workers
people who don't comprehend "I'm thinking!"
people who don't understand "I'm writing!"
lost times, when we can't quite comprehend some moment
that comes like surf, over and over again,
almost taking us to a brink we alone cannot
comprehend;

but through it all, Bruce, down deep in your soul,
you know that we ARE here, and no, we won't forget...at least not for some 20 years or more...AND

you will always remain Alive in the Archives....





Be well, my friend.

I REALLY (grandly) appreciate all the wonderful 'comment/reply' posts from all the fine folks in "P.I.P.land"  to my initial
one.  I have had a 'love/hate' relationship with 'poetry' most of my life.  Perhaps it because my 'scribblings' stand in such
stark contrast to 'real life' amid the current "Runaway American Dream"  ... that writing it seems so increasingly useless
(pointless) ...

Maybe it just won't let me 'quit' (an 'escapist addiction?') ... but, I sincerely keep trying!!
