Hi old friends and new people! Happy reunion and happy Thanksgiving, almost. I haven't been here in ages.

For those who don't know me or remember me - I'm Susan... currently a reporter and always a mom to three kids (the oldest is home from college this week, which makes me absolutely gleeful). Beyond that, I write poetry as a form of creative release. I have published some in the past, but I'm in a refusal to submit mode at present. I've been in that mode for a while and I may not come out of it.

Anyway - that's me. It's very cool to be back here. I will have to come back more often.

For the sake of sharing poetry, here's the one I wrote today... yes, a duplicate to those who are on my facebook list of friends.

-S

Happy Thanksgiving - The story of my life for the past couple of years...I've been spending far too much time working at the office, and the amount of time spent working combined with the OCD-ness of much of what I do has put my poor muse into a coma.

A message from Jan Zahler Lebow:

Re: PW's Thanksgiving Reunion

Thanks, Pat - I'll try to make it but I'm not sure...Have a cousin flying in to spend the Thanksgiving weekend with me and I don't know if I'll be able to hit the board or not. If I can't, please just let the folks know that all is well on this end and that I'm hoping all is well in their lives...
