Such a sweet and caring message that I'm sure will be greatly appreciated by all your Fanstory friends, and a fine poem too. Having not seen you around for awhile, you popped into my mind, crazy as that seems. So, I came to take a peek at what I haven't read. Hope all is well in your world!

    Hi Ric
    Thank you for your thoughtful comments and reflections on this
    one, so glad it reflected the caring theme and message in poem
    to be noted by you too. Have been off for while due to loss of
    2 family members to Covid and one nephew from sudden heart attack, yet life and lives must go on; and am likewise.
    Popping into your mind; perhaps a curious kind of 'craziness'
    yet similar kind of craziness strangely occurs from time to time
    about you; and peek to see if you have written something new too.
    Curiosity usually serves a good purpose, better than merely guessing or just wondering. A positive vibe in this instance indeed!
    Thanks again for the peek through and perceptive read, and
    apologies for slightly late reply. Take care, stay safe.
    Best wishes always, Ronni

"...who bloom bright in warmth, empathy and subtle love's
sharing in muse-lands perpetual invitations always aglow"..." <
I wonder who, from all those smiles
sent Christmas joy across the miles...
a friend with whom compassion shares
warm kinship - yes - because she cares.

I'm late in responding to your incredibly kind gesture, Ronni. It's been a hard month. I lost my sweet cat, and she suffered for a long time too -- Christmas 2021 was one of the most difficult Christmas's I've ever had. I was blessed to have her out of the hospital for a few days, but lost her January 4th.

Thank you for making my Yuletide season brighter. Your poem, while written about others, reflects you perfectly.

You are one who sees the promise in the sunrise, a new life awakening, and beyond the quiet sadness in the growing twilight, like losing a friend.
Your words take us on a journey that otherwise, we might have missed.
Happy to see you posting again!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Hi Irish,
    Thank you for your most uniquely complimentary comments and
    reflections on this one! Not sure I merited all that, but most
    appreciably taken as sincere and heartfelt coming from "you".
    And always uplifting encouragement and gratitude!
    Hope you had a wonderful xmas and will have a rewarding
    and fulfilling New Year in all you do!
    In appreciation always, Ronni
    P.S. Sorry am tardy again, a weird dislocated shoulder injury
    just 10 days before Xmas & immediate chiropractic treatments
    has been all the more frustrating and slowed up considerably.
    Even before this, had to revise and adjust schedule; strung out
    too many directions. But working on it very obligingly.

    Sorry about your shoulder, you didn't say how you did that!
    Hope you are healing fast, I am a great believer in chiropractic treatments, which kept me from back surgery.
    Cheers, irish

    Hi Irish,
    You would be the one to ask ! I should
    have known....
    Awkward fall of office chair...I was
    picking up some papers in front of
    my computer table, pushed back the
    simple office chair (no side arms)
    behind me, assuming it was right
    behind me as I started to sit down;
    eerily realized it wasn't; with roller
    caster type wheels, it rolled back
    further away. Rather than falling
    straight down on read and spine,
    I turned side ways trying to break
    my fall reaching for a bookcase
    nearby, so fell on right leg and
    shoulder. Neighbor got an ER
    appt next day at her Chiropractor...
    got treatments, lots of pain and
    relief at same time but much better.
    Have to have a few more alignment
    treatments from awkward way I fell,
    but not as bad as might have been.
    Ok..that's how it
    much improved...thank you for
    your concern.
    Best always, Ronni

I read this the other day. I wanted to wait until I had a sixth star before reviewing.
I have told you before, and I say it again. You are just immaculate. Such quietness in your writing. Such poise, such reserve, yet, it moves like a clear mountain stream. Words particularly glide against, within, and around each other, not even noticing the other but fully joined, in every way.
Such beautiful writing. Good to see you here.
My best.
Have a wonderful coming year.

    Hello dear RG...
    I hardly know where or how to begin to thank you for such a
    truly glorious and stunning review, but I think you know by
    now that I am honored and appreciative beyond words that
    you express them uniquely praiseworthy and perceptively perceived
    in your generously heartfelt style.
    Hope you have a truly marvelous Christmas and a most
    rewarding and fulfilling New Year!!
    Gratefully always!!!! Ronni
    P.S. Off to read your Holiday Message post, yours always take
    more than one reading, but I shall gladly prevail in the experience
    of it and hopefully a merit worthy review. God Bless You!
