Makes me sad too, Kathy. Chalkboard is a wonderful place full of wonderful people. Very inspiring. But you have certainly seen that I haven’t contributed for quite a while. I want to write better poetry then I do and that takes much time. One reason I didn’t mention for getting more and more separated from Chalkboard, is my love for music. I am part of several amateur ensembles that work hard on beautiful but (almost too) difficult pieces. Brahms, Beethoven, Dvorák, Shostakovich devour much of my free time. Even in the life of a pensioner time and energy are limited. I do not know how much I can follow as a non-member, but you will hear from me whenever I see a chance. In the mean time: keep up the good work, you are a gem.
