Thank you very much for your very warm and most welcome letter. It is so many years since I received one that I hope I have not forgotten how to reply.
When I was younger I used to reply to each point raised rather like a defence lawyer but now realise that it is not necessary to do so.The reason being of course that the sender is unlikely to have kept a copy of the one sent.
You are a wonderful poet and I admire the quality and quantity of your writing. I have also observed your wittiness as well as your thought provoking insights and I am glad to be amongst your cyber friends.It is nice to throw of the shackles of rhyme to send this but I am worried by the limitations of my vocabulary. Words are all we have and those written are especially important as they can often be misconstrued. It is one of the reasons I don't receive many letters because I am always worried about my reply and often choose not to send one, My experience on having done so is to inadvertently upset my reader , receive a terse reply and then end up having to write another letter. I am telling you this so that you are aware that I find it difficult to compose letters and ask you to make allowances for this at what I hope is the beginning and not the end of our correspondence!
I look forward to hearing from you!
All the best,
This thread follows on with the letters started in Creative Corner Three point one: http://bit.ly/lFabgh
We'd like to clarify that posting in letter form is not against forum rules.
This is really just a variation on posts directed to another user.
Personal communication only breaches forum where, for example, the text of someone's emails which they intended to be private ends up posted here. This would obviously be taken very seriously.
But if posting in letter form makes it easier to write or share your thoughts at that moment, then feel free to post that way!
Dear everybody,I'm not very good at writing letters.When I joined the forum back in 2000 and something it doesn't really matter what year.All I know is looking back I was a total wreck.I was seeking answers to why I had PD.I've laughed at peoples posts and cried. thought to myself at times that I'm not going to post any more.And then lve thought why not .When I get up on a morning its like my daily paper.It saddens me when i read that people aren't going to post any more.We all have our ups and down days and i feel the forum offers a lot of support.So to all you guys and gals out there keep posting
lOTS OF LOVE ANGEL
Thank you for your letter.
Like you when I first started to post on the forum I was unsure as to what I would gain from it but, I have enjoyed (mostly) the chance to talk with other people who know what PD is all about. Support yes, advice yes and definitely somewhere to go in the wee small hours when I can't sleep are just a few things that I have found and would hate to lose.
Please can I echo your words and ask everyone to keep posting.
I write this in hope of your emergence from the dark misty moors of those wanderings felt necessary.Hoping that you have come through the great sadness inside.We have communicated briefly,i feel we share certain emotions and believe that you deserve this letter of acknowledgement.
I love your poems and apologise for not commenting,especially when you name me as prompting a poem which i have only just read.I too have been wandering and return in the hope that you will take my hand and be guided back to a place where you are missed.I especially liked your connection with "the poet from hell",of course i see her words as magical.Now mine are like hell.
Here is my belated response.Firstly,i feel for your loss,relationship,Father and friend.Your poem "sick and tired of all this loss"
"A great sadness inside of me"
"In time i will heal"
"Don,t waste yours in sad pursuit"
"Of hoping you are next in line"
"So we wait for our real life to begin"
"Somehow missing a beautiful day"
"God stopping to intercede"
I pick out these lines and they make me realise how much you see and how much you feel for those around you,so"Are you man enough to take my hand",the last of your lines i return to you.Hoping that you know how important your poems and presence are on this creative section.Where the smiley faces the last straw ?
Just wanted to send this letter,to let you know this and to say,you are appreciated and i apologise for missing this particular poem.
All the best
