Sailing Away











Au revoir, friends and readers. It's time for another voyage away from the shores of blogging. If I come safely to the other side, perhaps we'll all meet again. Till then, best of luck to all, and much gratitude to those who have supported and cheered me through the shoals and reefs of the past.

  1. Hey Joy--have a great voyage. I'm glad to have been a small part of the many cheering (and, of course, am still part of those who cheer you), and sorry to have been part of the departure if I was. I write this with the idea that you are moderating, and won't post, but did want to wish you all best. k.

    2. Well, I think you and your poetry (and prose too!) are just terrific--searching, thoughtful, resonant and vivid--as do your many admirers. Great thing about the soul bucket--there's an endless supply of material! Take care, k.

  2. I love that painting! I won't say much here, except that I know what cove you hide in, and so will send you Zac-O-Grams at that locale. ;-)

  3. Well, I'm hardly one to speak, though for some reason la belle dame, Muse, has peeked a bit own my own well the last few days.

    At least I have the 2 collections you published with Shay and Kelly on my nightstand, to visit offline.

    You know where to find me, as we hunker down the coming storm. Stay safe from those damnable human caused quakes. The natural ones can be scary, but acceptable. Those others? F@##$@'s, one and all. ~

    1. Words are just dead for me at the moment, M. I can't find any, even to comment in a semi-articulate way--perhaps it's the post-Bernie let-down with humanity, or just a phase I'm going through. I will continue to read, and be comforted by your work, never fear, even if checking a box is the best I can do atm.

  4. All the best, Hedge. I've been struggling with something like that too.

  7. I wish you a great travel for whatever reason, and hope to see you coming back with full force... there are so many good reason to write... and I'll miss you.

  8. Enjoy your travels, dearest Hedgewitch. Collect poems and stories, gobble them up, and perhaps when you come back (if you come back) you can tell us how they tasted. You will be missed. ♥

  9. Fare well, breezy sails and better shores, friend. Thanks for all the power & depth & truth you packed into your charms, these poems. We are all so much more ruddered for them. Hope we'll meet again.
