« "The D on My Transcript" [by Nin Andrews] | Main | Is Suicide Contagious? [by DL] »

April 21, 2009


Wow. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying your posts, Merle. This is just wonderful. Evocative, moving, and deeply engaging.

More, please!

I agree with Laura. I find I'm waking up eager to read them. . Thanks.

Merle is a wonderful writer, something I've known for, shall we say, a very long time!

Grabbing a minute, in between classes--
Earthlink's down, so I went straight to the source, to see if there comments.
Thank you so much, Laura, Marissa (and my 'old friend' Stacey, who is in fact younger than me!! - grin)
Seriously: what you say means a lot.
And having the opportunity to rise up and meet a daily deadline is doing wonders for my writing and emotional/spiritual health.
A hartsikn dank, heartfelt, thanks!
