Message:  How's this old front porch doing?
See a few empty rockers here now and then,
waiting for new folks to sit in them.
A few of us have been hanging around
out back a little more this past while.
Could it be the "edit" function and those
smiley-face options? Or is it Dave Franklin's
homemade wine? I think a lot of it is simply
everybody wanting to be on the same wavelength,
in on the same conversations. Maybe the back porch has been where more of us have been sharing thoughts and feelings of late,
what with so many hearts and souls in need
and our messages being so full of feeling
that we want to be able to go back
and repair the message if we didn't say it
like we wanted the first time we posted it.
What do you think?   
The important thing is that Mickey Newbury's
vision for this place continues being realized, keeps living and thriving.
Thanks again to Susie and Chris
and the entire Newbury family for keeping
this old porch warm and protected from storms,
a home away from home for all of us wayward souls
who found each other through Mickey.
