@auntiehelen I was moved and thrilled by the creative talent in this contest and enjoyed reading more that winning, honestly. Having said that - THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. I’m thrilled that you liked it. Like @Sapora, I’d like to say thanks for this safe space for expression.
Thank you so very much for my spot among the winners! Also thank you to everyone who reads, likes, and comments; the kind and encouraging comments really make my heart happy. Congratulations to all of the winners, there are some fantastic talented writers and artists here Shelley
@auntiehelen HOLY SMOKES!!! I didn't think anyone would actually read that! Thank goodness you posted a Poetry Corner Contest! I LOVE IT! (The idea!) So thank you for reading the poem and for First Place! I am astonished and honored! YAY!
And CONGRATS TO ALL POETIC WINNERS who are gettin' your poetry groove on! Love this!
@auntiehelen I have been HORRIBLE at keeping up with my series and keeping up with our members' writings. I apologize to all of you. I've been battling severe and painful sinus infections for months (not Covid -- got tested) and find to easier to make Sets when my vision isn't blurred from the swelling. Hard to read or type. Getting better (I HOPE!) and it will take me some time to catch up on everyone's work, but I do not feel I have to. I want to. I really enjoy this group and all the variety here. Just LOVE it!
CONGRATS WINNERS.... ah, WRITERS!!!
Who is going to start a blog of their work? All of it, from what I've read thus far, has a specific audience and what's coming "out" of each of you is just amazing! LOVE THIS GROUP!
I'm behind on everything and have yet to take some 'Me Time' to immerse myself in these wonderful stories. Looking forward to that! For now, a very belated and extremely beloved CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!!!
@auntiehelen I am so so very late to this party! I must confess, I have been reading all of the stories behind the scenes. What imaginative and talented storytellers and writers we have in this group! We need to tell more people about this, because it is really amazing what comes out of the creative mind when one allows it to drift into a tale. I extend a very loud and happy CONGRATULATIONS!!! to ALL WINNERS and I am thrilled you're writing. Don't you find it fun? Therapeutic? Stimulating? Relaxing? Wonderful? Challenging in a good way? This is just GREAT! Well done, All!
@auntiehelen A belated and very grateful THANK YOU for selecting one of my sets as a winner in this second one in our new home! Very exciting! I haven't yet had a moment to sit and read the entries, as life offline has been a little overwhelming (it happens), but I intend to.
In the meantime, a HAPPY CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!!! I feel so much is coming out of so many who might not otherwise share or even discover their talent for storytelling. It's fabulous! Thank you again, @auntiehelen!
