Seven Years of Christmas here at Pathetic

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.
