Prolonged Absence

Hello Everyone,

Its been too long again, After my last post I was very unwell again so here I am again lol I have been going through a lot in my personal life mainly health issues at this point, I have been put through the wringer and I simply don't have much energy these days but tonight I felt great so I thought I might come visit you lot of vagabonds lol, I have missed you all and reading the amazing poetry that flows from our pages, I have been remiss in speaking to my friends but I am sure they understand that it wasn't of my own free will, if I had a choice I would be chatting to everyone and I would be posting things everyday, I do write everyday and have a mountain of poems to go through and edit and work on so I am going to revisit them all as I can, I have found out I have to have more surgery so its not all over for me yet, I am about to have another spinal surgery in the coming weeks it was a shock but apparently they seem to think that this will help significantly for my future, I do know and can share that eventually I will not be able to walk anymore because of spinal cord damage but they seem to think with treatment that will be a long way off, I am determined to stay on my two pegs as long as I can, It was a rotten year last year I am hoping this year will bring with it a better and more peaceful days and many poems shared read and embraced ...

Take care people your always in my thoughts and I do sneak in and read from time to time even if I don't have the energy to comment, maybe I should be like a graffitist and tag them (I was here) lol but I know that falls out of our directions for critique ;)

much love and new year blessings to all

I am sorry you had to go all this pain and more, yet I still can see a kind of determination coming through your words which is enough to defeat any disease and keep alive.
We all know you are such a poet who adores life.
Please share what you right. Don't worry about commenting. Dropping a hey on any of our pages means you've been there and it is enough.
Take care dear Jayne and know we all love you.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

So lovely to hear from you and you know we have been watching over you from day one.
The children are still there with you Sadie told me the other evening which was unusual for her to come through.
Let us know if there is anything we can do, just you take it easy and know we can hold you,
Yours as always Ian, and the Children xxx

Give critique to help keep Neopoet great.
Unconditional love to you all.

Good to see you and to see you are feeling a bit better! I myself have been on and off due to personal reasons, none as trying as yours, though. Hope to see some new material rom you soon.

Good to see you post an update here which many like me would always look forward to. I can sense how much energy you must have had to put into this message. You are an Aussie girl and I am sure your courage, determination and will power would see you get over the present health issues to the best possible extent. We shall pray for this year to be more peaceful than 2014 with the best of health, happiness and harmony in your life.Take best care and get well soon.

Much love and warm hugs,

I am very pleased to hear from you and hear that you are getting better. I am well aware how pain can affect every phase of a person's life and hope that you have the worst of it behind you. I look forward to your eventual full return an I suspect you look forward to returning to the land beyond the black stump......stan

Be strong. I know everyone here missed you too. Hope everything will becomes better for you. I'll remember you in my prayers, angel. Till then, get well soon. See ya.

With all the love in the world
