the blue light of my computer screen wraps around me
and i am pulled into a different universe
where we write and read and talk.
you can never understand how much this means to me
to share my writing
and get encouragement.
i am so lucky
to be a part of this beautiful community.
everyone is so supportive
each and every one of you
means so much to me.
don't ever hesitate to share
your thoughts and
sorrows with me.
i feel you and hear you and love you.
thank you, my lovelies, for all of this.
how can i possibly express what i am feeling right now?! i am ecstatic and joyful and kinda surprised and so so so happy. thank you for 100 followers (haha, thanks mystifiedtulip for making it official)!!!!! anyway anyway. you guys are amazing and i totally mean everything i said in the poem above.
below is my thank you to the writers who have made a lasting impact on me, have helped improve my writing, and with whom (who?) i have had a ton of interesting conversations:
