    1. I am realizing that poets are the loyal fans of all poetry….we are the one’s that read it, expecting for some kind of discovery to pop loudly in our heads. And I am fine with it. It’s comforting to be in a viral world surrounded with the invisible like-minded. I do like it!
      Now I’ll stop clucking and leave you with a beauty.

      We’re always attracted to the edges of what we are,
      out by the edges where it’s a little raw and nervy.

    Thank you, TersiaBurger@ http://tersiaburger.com for your nomination on April 14, 2013. But I must confess, YOU are the one who should receive it! The love, courage, and determination to BE with your daughter through all that she has suffered since her birth, is beyond remarkable!

    2. I cherish the people I meet and who allow me into their lives.

  2. I do not know IF I let you know that YOU have been nominated for the Dragon/Loyalty Award!
    See below:
    Thank you for the Dragon Loyalty Award

    Thank you to dear Shaun for nominating me for the “Dragon Loyalty Award.” You are so gallant and strong…and your blog is that of an Honest Knight! Dear Shaun, you wrote: “I have a great life, I am blessed, but when the hurt comes, I turn to you, Word Press..And you help me.. I hope I help you back, just a little” —- your words have helped me a great deal! Thank you for being a blogger and sharing your truth so beautifully!

    Seven Facts about me:

    1. I seem to love to laugh…more and more…and not to “cover up” pain…I feel so happy! and it is WONDERFUL! I have been sad long enough in my life…and now I think there is something more…deeper joy!

    2. I love to plant trees…unfortunately, due to last summer’s drought, trees that I watched grow for 2o years, are now dying. But today, my neighbor gave me 4 more trees to plant! How kind and generous of Ellen!

    3. I am blessed with beautiful people in my life…my family…my daughters…my grandchildren..LOVE!

    4. I do enjoy playing Canasta and Gin Rummy…occasionally.

    5. I would love to learn French, Spanish, Hindi and Chinese. I know one or two phrases in each. Now time for some serious studying! LOL

    6. Sometimes I get very lonely…and depressed…and I turn to my writing to free myself…and then I get responses from the wonderful WordPress family and all is well! Since I have begun daily meditation, I am doing so much better…I see how important it is to return to the Center…to find balance.

    7. I believe in the GOD of LOVE—and I am open to all forms of spirituality….because, honestly, I think we are all ONE in LOVE. We are all water love crystals, gifting each other along the way…just like a bag of marshmellows when placed in the microwave—they all become ONE! So we are marshmellows of love crystals full of love sugar and whichever religion, spirituality, view gets you to believe in yourself and the goodness of others is a wonderful, tremendous gift!

    1. I am so pleased with your poetry and I’m so glad you decided to post and share your art with me. It’s nice of you to visit and comment on my page; It makes me smile.
      I’m really trying to post more often. It just seems that I’m too busy on most days to commit to it. But since you actually noticed that I’ve been absent tells me all I need to know about committing myself to post what I write and to enjoy all the ‘good stuff’ on poetry and art that this site offers. So….thank you for inspiring me as well!!

  4. Hello. Thanks for visiting my site, not even my mum liked as many of my “poems” as you did the other day. I do like people who rummage around in the older stuff as well. Keep posting and I’ll keep reading. Dave.
