Mike, thank you for listening to ME on a day when YOU were weary. I'll try to keep my personal war stories to myself from now on, I apologize if I appeared to be thoughtless or callous. It was just my way of holding your hand, m'friend.
Jan, Jan, Jan, you are such good medicine, and I know, you need an update, and I'm running ragged again. But take a hug till later, and I'll write as soon as I am able.
love ya girlie, thanks for reading...and our conversations are priceless! Thank you
Vicky? Thank you for being patient and I'll let you know what's up too--let's just say I'm still flying over the cuckoo's nest here.
Love ya my sista!
And Brian--shaking my head and smiling. You are WAY too kind my friend. I want to thank YOU too--you are my favorite person to discuss poetry with--and god bless you for seeing past my tap dancing long enough to be REAL with me--there are very few I feel comfortable enough with to discuss anything on completely serious levels (I have ISSUES yanno, grin) But our conversations on Blake and Sandberg and history and Scripture and anthropology and modern day myth and irony and yes, even AMERICAN PIE (I still owe ya one for that) chuckle. Thanks YOU.
You are truly a doll.
And I have to run good poets, I'll be back when I'm able...
p.s. Be careful when you wish for a life--or at least be VERY specific!
love you all.
