Thank you. When I received

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

Thank you. When I received 1944 as the random year, it was all I could think of, the batlle where a realtive of mine died on Christmas Eve. I thought it so sad that he had died on that day, not that death on any other day would have been less sad...

Your story drew me in and, being a woman, infuriated me at the lack of...

Posted on Mon, 20 May 2019

I love the flavor of friendship in this – you’re letting us in on your thoughts as this day unfolds, like we’re best friends and I laughed, commiserated and cheered and it was so much fun spending the day there – I truly enjoyed your wit and...

Posted on Mon, 13 May 2019

I could not stop reading, each morsel of this story was more tender than the last. The way you wrote of the beauty of her poetry conjured images both amazing and provoking, winter can be warmly cold and artistically beautiful. This was a great...

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

Thank you airyfairy, it has always stayed with me even though I'd never meet this relative, the ending of his life seemed so harsh for one so young (he'd turned 29 the September before that Christmas Eve) and the year 1944 just evoked so many...

Posted on Sun, 05 May 2019

I love what you surmise in this thought provoking theory. I would book first passage to this Planet 9 free from all the animosity, hatred, wanton pollution etc... It would be a utopia for sure. Perhaps Heaven is out there among the uncharted...

I love that you respect all

Posted on Fri, 03 May 2019

I love that you respect all these animals as do I, and I know my dog is smarter than me because he tells me exactly what he wants( food, water, walk) and I listen every time.

Great rhyme and flow of this poem, I loved it and the cherries...
