dear Antane......it's a nice feeling to be back. There are always things to say.....it's just that we don't always have the time and/or the emotional impetus to do them. I'm sure that i speak for Mechtild when I say that nothing would please me more to post every day. But....it sadly isn't possible. Too many other calls on time, too many RL *things* which leach energy and passion from you. But I am equally sure that we'll not ever close the conversation ........

I'm very glad that you enjoyed the poems, dear.

Please don't worry about the MEFA's, at least not on my account. Some while ago, I came across a posting on MEN, wherein Marta was calling for volunteers. The awards are so wonderfully staffed, that it simply has to be a huge, huge task, and it sounds as if perhaps not enough people could commit to it. When I saw the post, I figured that there wouldn't be a MEFA this year (and, as you say, perhaps not ever again). Marta has done a lovely, lovely job in a very difficult field. I do hope that someone's nose did not get out of joint over a rating, and i should think that Marta is strong enough not to let that defeat her. But perhaps she's just had enough of *all* of it. It certainly is a Frodo-esque task, where one slogs through the mire and heat and dust for little or no thanks.

For myself, although it is surely nice to be acknowledged by the MEFA's and other fan awards, I find, most often that my true pleasure and reward is the writing of the piece itself. It's a wonderful thing to be blessed to write within this universe. Sharing with other fans is the icing on the cake.

(and thank you very much for calling these "masterpieces". Hats shall be worn a size larger in my smial this year.....)
