Well, as usual, Gordi steals the show! (sorry Big G, should I be whispering?) LOL
It's very nice and kind of you to let the new (to the site) writers know that their efforts are appreciated and read with sincere interest. I think
it's especially important ,at this moment, as writing one's thoughts, expression and ideas can be met with negativity.
I think that positivity certainly can counter that and writing as an outlet or a way to express one's innermost thoughts and ideas can be cathartic
for the writer and the one receiving any message that the writer may be trying to convey.
I write to get it out of me. I am not always good at deep emotional conversations (except with my daughters, my most trusted companions) and my circle
is small so my stories (not only bring them and I together in expression and something we enjoy) but, allow me to release jumbled and bottled up
Yes, most of my crap poetry is from times when I was experiencing loss of love, or hope for an illness that seemed would never heal and the death of
part of my heart, my Mother.
The support I received after opening oneself up so vulnerably was invaluable and will not be forgotten. Just the thought that perhaps something I've
written may have stirred something within someone else, whom I may never see with my eyes, across the country or on the other side of the world,
perhaps, is amazing to me.
And when I feel that, myself, from a story idea or a poem someone has selected to write about or express their innermost thoughts it is no less
Anyway, long ramble to get around to saying thanks for saying what I'm sure the ones who have taken the leap of faith were thinking and expressing it
