    Hello Michael,
    I know I've been 'quiet', as you said in your warm note. I wish I could say it was a creative 'quiet', but it's a disgusted 'quiet'. This website is really beginning to bug me and I'm thinking of finding a new 'home' for my poetry. The pop-ups are incredibly annoying, the fact that you don't really have a place to post proper notes to people is annoying, and this latest problem with losing everything posted since June is the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back... if you would like to talk, my email is cjheck@barkingspiderspoetry.com.
    Take care, my poet friend.
    Warmest regards,
    CJ

Love Love Love

Oh it's so easy to say -

'Give what you think you lack -

On the other hand -

the evanescent substance of a dream,
like half-remembered, half-forgotten care,
but known to be more real than they seem;
