Rae - many thanks for reading and commenting on "The Death of Me".
Rae thanks for reading "blinking blinking" and what you wrote about it. I wrote it at the height of the BP oil spill. Things are still bad with the oil but the media has dropped it and everyone thinks its safe to eat shrimp. Thanks, Rae
thanks for the support!
Rae, Thank you so much for tracking down To-Die-For. I feel really lucky to have you as a reader.
I know we're not suppose to have favorites among our children, but the sentence you mentioned from your reading of my story "Sweet Sour" is my favorite child of this litter. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. Much appreciated.
Rae, I appreciate the mini-review of my post 9/11 story. Very welcome. Very nice.
Hi Rae, thank you for the read on "things" and for mentioning that line "corpuscels in the melt." I have a fondness for it too but you are the first to single it out. Cheers! Susan
Rae, wow, you deserve a medal or at least an ice cream cone for all the stories and poems you've read this morning. I really appreciate your reading and commenting on the (relatively long) story "Snow." Very kind of you.
Rae, thanks for finding, reading, and commenting on Spring. Your note made me smile -- I'm so glad the story worked for you.
Rae, thanks so much for reading Girl. I really appreciate it.
Hi Rae, nice to hear from you. All best.
Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome!
Really enjoyed the website.
Hi, Rae! Nice selection of favorite authors you got there.
Hi Rae--I don't come here as often as I used to, but good to see you here!
Nice to see you here, Rae.
Oh, and thanks on the kudos.
Heya back. Liked the part about him cuddling her arm like a teddy bear. Macabre. How's Moon Milk?
