Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


For those who shared my journey over these last four years in any way, for whatever time, I say thank you. I have decided to close my blog permanently for reasons some may understand while others will not. The last couple of months have been increasingly difficult for me as my vision has continued to fail. It is time to accept that I can no longer do this on my own. Again thank you for encouragement, inspiration, and so much more  along the way.

  3. Michael, thank you for being my inspiration. I always enjoyed coming here to say hi to you. Your comments on my poems have encouraged me. My only regret is that my first sonnet is not even ready. I promise I will be a cool poet just like you. Please know that you will be missed. Hugs. Miwako

  5. I am so sorry that I sometimes disconnected, especially thought you would ‘be around’ so didn’t worry about losing touch. I cared about you, hoped for good things to happen to you and will miss you very much! thanks for our back and forth conversations awhile back. Take care and God bless you, Michael! Hugs, Robin O.Cochran
