Seven Years of Christmas here at Pathetic
12/09/2012 05:42 p.m.
Who knew I would be a part of a poetry group for seven years this month! When Mara Meade and Elizabeth Jill pushed me in this direction and to this site I thought they were being gracious friends and optimistic about my writing at best. What I didn't know was what they did know - there are places one can go and become a part of a community of people who love to write, places to play with words, develop styles, reject styles, try to master a form or two, and watch other people do the same.

I've been amazed at some of the poets here and continue to be so, daunted by their abilities to make words dance, twist time, express an elegant idea, crudely address a crude situation, and share their lives, imaginary or real.

This site is truly a gift to self and I will continue to give it as long as it is here.
Thanks to all for comments and kind words over the years. I cherish you all.

Merry Christmas, may your muses kiss you often, caress your needs, express your wants.

Ditto what Rhiannon said! This Dec is 9 years here for me! Where has all that time gone? Pathetic is one of the things that has been a constant amid an otherwise hectic-changing life. I'm so glad to have connected with you!!

This December is 8 years for me. It's been quite an interesting time here. I'm glad you've stuck around. We can't let the few people who seem to argue over anything bring us down. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

I've enjoyed your presence and poetry in the six and 1/2 years I've been here. Merry Christmas! Your comments have always encouraged me to keep picking up a pen (figuratively speaking).

And you m'lady are one of my muses. One who writes and makes me believe I must go on as futile as if sometimes seems to be.
