Hi Sarah welcome.You don't have to write just read. I started like that then felt the need to get my feelings down on paper, good way of getting things out.

Welcome Sarah, the others have said it all. It is a great place, with wonderful people who really care about everyone. We hope people will write to express their inner feelings which when affected by war can be very deep. Writing almost flushes away that feeling of being bottled up, it releases the demons and lets the soul breathe again.

Dive into the pool of words when the water starts lapping at your toes, as Taffy says you'll be surprised, it's such a good feeling.

Dream, Hope, Believe, Do

A huge hello back! Never mind the pew - a cosy armchair will do! Great to have you pop in - do stay and join us! Maybe see some of your poems soon? We are a friendly, welcoming and very mad bunch of supportive folk! Slippers are fine!

Thank you for the greeting Jan, i certainly will send some poems in very soon but most of all i look forward to paying my respects to lots of people who have given so much of themselves in life and literature.
You do sound like a very friendly bunch of folks and i'm sure that's just the tip of the Iceburg!
I think it's time for a nice hot Horlicks with a dash of something, or is it the other way round??
Regards
Suetoo

We all love Guinness, so you can be an Honorary member of thr ' Forces Poetry Guinness drinkers Club '
I've been a Moderator for Forces Poetry since June 2007 ( Best thing I ever did, as I've been part of a growing, living thing, and had the honour to watch it evolve into what it is today )
My good wife & soul mate, Paula has been a Moderator for Forces Stories for about 6 weeks now.
I only hazard a guess Sue !, but do you know anybody called Peter ?

Hi again Suetoo you can leave the slippers off if you want too, we can't smell your feet from here, or care if the bottom of them are dirty. Ha! Ha! You see I'm as comfortable as you can get, I lay in the bed when I'm on here, as you see with my PTSD I live in a 10 foot x 10 foot corner of my large house, My pycologist calls it my secuity bunker, I have my computer and a small refrigrator on the left, right against the bed, top of bed against the wall, and a desk with a TV on it, right against the right side, so I must enter and exit the bed on the end, some of this is due to the nightmares I have many nights, I kept rolling out of the bed and doing myself harm, so had to fix it where there was no way to roll out onto the floor.

So see just get as comfortable as you like, we will not laugh.
