It’s time I take brief pause from poetry in order to acknowledge you – the amazing members of my WordPress community. As I yawn toward the dawn of this late summer morning, I find that more than 9,000 of you now follow this blog. On more than a quarter million occasions, you have gone out of your way to visit and read my work.
Few traditional paperback writers enjoy such affirmation. We contemporary poets and authors are blessed with a modern technology that allows our words to instantly reach so many appreciative eyes. The personal connections and friendships made possible by the internet are, for me, a continuing source of encouragement and inspiration.
It is impossible to adequately express just how much you all mean to me. All I can do is promise to keep writing poetry, as best I can, and hope you will continue to enjoy what you read here.
Meantime, I take this moment to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have already given to me.
