Various people from Very different backgrounds
Allow me to burden them with prose.
Listening to my stories, Liking the words, Lending their
Expertise. Encouraging me to keep on writing.
No one says, "Give up."
They help me get it right with patience and good sense.
It is a solitary pursuit, yet It cannot be done alone.
None may think they have made a difference deleting, or offering new words to replace old. Yet...
Each one of you is this writer's greatest gift.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
