Hello kindred spirits, old and new friends, colleagues.  I hope to post poems on various subjects dear to my heart, and perhaps to yours as well.   Your ideas and comments will be welcome.  I look forward to reading them.

    Hi Ku, I saw your picture – you’re soft and gorgeous. Yes, collies – 7 weeks old at the time. Blessings of the heart. Now I have 2 from collie rescue – I swear they are related to the two in the picture.

    Hello Auguste and thanks for visiting! It seems so surprising to realize that, yes, these large creatures are gentle! At least if you’re not interfering with their offspring. I think about a bull elk I saw not too long along. I was hiking along, not looking where I was going. A few feet from me, on the trail at the top of a hill, he waited. My first thought was, “Oops!” But he had absolutely the sweetest expression on his face. We backed away and climbed to the side. He walked down the trail, and when he was past us he stopped and bugled a song of thanks and greeting!
    I plan to visit your blog, Auguste!

  10. Hi Pen & Monica,
    I love poetry and have a few on my blog, Black Meridian, I would like to share. If you have any you would like to post there, feel free to do so. Your pictures are fantastic, they look like beautiful gentle animals. It makes me feel ashamed to go into the local barber shop. He has trophies on the wall. Yuk!! Auguste

  11. Monica says:

    Welcome, Julie, and thanks for visiting. I’ll be checking out your blog, too.

    Josh, that’s great – I have one for you, too.

  15. I put a link for your blog on my page to thank you for the support, thanks Monica!

  16. Monica says:

    Thank you, M. Thomas, for this lovely comment! The poems are about the 2 national parks near Moab, Utah — Arches and Canyonlands. That country is like nothing else I know.

  17. M.Thomas says:

    Just found your poems and inspirational thoughts. Thank you for sharing. Where/what parks are the canyonlands about? Beautiful!

  18. Monica says:

    Moi? Love to hear from you, my friend.

  19. Monica says:

    Hello Bluebee, Thank you for coming by. Love to hear from you. Just out of computer range for a while. Sometimes that’s good, and then it’s nice to be back and catch up. I miss the poetry.

    Hello, Monica

    Just popping in to say hope all is well with you 🙂

    Hi Chloe, I agree with you – it’s astonishing and wonderful to be part of this talented and generous community. I love going to a blog – yours for example – and finding poetry so amazing I gasp with pleasure! Thank you for sharing your writing and thoughtful comments — I love it.

  23. Chloe says:

    Hey Monica – I just wanted to say thank you for all of your encouraging comments on my blog recently…I really appreciate this great sense of community that we share in ‘blogland’ – in a way, it’s like our own little online village. One of the great things, however, is that we’re all so inviting to new people which I think is awesome as our community just keeps on growing 😀

    I’m also enjoying getting to know many of my readers well and feel blessed to be able to call you (and them) friends!!

    PS – I just LOVE the photo of your cute and adorable dogs. Like you, I am a dog lover and know that my little dog (Stormy) will be in my heart forever xx

    Hi Pen, You are right about the date. For the longest time, I had to look at the white spot on Sneffie’s nose and tail to tell them apart. They looked so much alike and were so utterly different. It was a lesson in genetics. For a long while their primary connection was to each other, and perhaps it always was. But as they grew into real adulthood — around age 5 — that changed. I can look at pictures and tell. That devoted and indomitable collie bond – hard to live without. That includes border collies. Your Bess is still a young 13 – happy dog and happy Pen.
    And please leave as many comments and as long as you like. I love them!
    Best- Monica

    aww, Monica… they are so adorable…Lulu and Sneffie, I was trying and almost failing to read the year on the photo, 23/10/96 I think…Bess came into our lives on the 17/11/97 ..and wrapped herself round our lives tightly with a bond that will always be there, not matter what!!… Gorgeous babies, just gorgeous…
    For some reason I’m not getting notice of your updates, I thought you hadn’t posted, I had called around a few times, but as I said before, I don’t want to ‘creep’ you out with all my long comments, I just find once started I can’t stop…!! … ’tis a failing I suppose, 😉
    and as for adding photo’s or gif’s or whatever onto comments on your own page, well,
    just do some testers on your Guestbook, copy the HTML code and paste into the comment box, and if it doesn’t work after you’ve posted the comment, then all you need do is ‘trash’ it and start again, trial and error, that’s the way I learned. (lots and lots of times 😀 ) If you’ve still got the link to my Photobucket site, try a few of my piccies., You’re always welcome my friend… xPenx

  26. andro51 says:

    Yes just add another page and where the title is, just write Guestbook or Welcome or something similar… Then when you click (Publish Immediately) the Guestbook will appear on your page… Have a very nice evening and thank you for your lovely comments on my Scripts… Be very well now.

  27. Androgoth, that is an interesting idea. I have seen Guestbook links without visiting them or knowing what they were about. I like the idea of having a more informal place to communicate, without having to refer to any particular post. I will look into this.
    Thank you!

  28. andro51 says:

    Monica have you ever thought about adding a Guestbook my wicked friend? Then everyone that calls into your Space can leave you a comment that is not related to any blogs, I find that Guestbooks add that little something to a Space, probably because I am used to having one… Maybe you could also add some Pages of your alternative interests? Just a thought of course… Have a lovely rest of evening and I hope that your Friday is a very nice one…

  29. I am thrilled, and I love your writing, too. So glad to have found it.

  30. bluebee says:

    Hi Monica

    Am enjoying your wonderful writing and hope you don’t mind me adding you to my poetry blogroll.


  31. Dear Pen,
    I had to laugh…I am utterly delighted by your visits, comments, poems, and stories. I love to visit your site, too, and feel as though wordpress has provided a community I am privileged to be part of. Thank you!! Monica

  32. penpusherpen says:

    Monica, I agree with Andro, your Blog here is such a delight… Please forgive me if I keep being drawn back and, maybe sometimes, don’t leave a comment… I just love to re-read your poetry…, I am overwhelmed sometimes, by the friendliness of people, and wonder if I give an impression of ‘stalking’ … Hope not!!…
    I am so glad I found your site…xPenx

  33. andro51 says:

    Then please feel free to call by whenever the mood takes you, and I hope that your journey is a most exquisite one… Be very well Monica… My new friend here in WordPress… Androgoth Xx

  34. Thanks so much for having a look at my poetry. Your Gothic Realm is amazing — what a creative imagination you have, Androgoth. And it is friendly. I love WordPress for allowing people to share like this.

  35. andro51 says:

    I am rather enjoying your WordPress blogs my friend, I am new to this environment having recently migrated from Windows Live Spaces… If I may I will return and view more of your work, perhaps add my thoughts as I discover your themes and your interests… If you wish you may enter My Gothic Realm, it is a friendly Space, though do not fear the Vampires and wicked Zombies that frequent it as they are merely my own signature… A Live WordPress Space of Interest I hope? Be well now… Androgoth
