|I really love happy endings. There was a story I read a long time ago about a man who had left his family behind to go and explore the world, and went back the family 15 years later. I forgot the name of the book, but it was very good. Who said we can't go home again?
May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

Outstanding Poetic Journey
|Reviewed by David Maclellan
|Karen, what an insightful and historical look into the life of our ancient mariners. They were hard and enduring days that are often portrayed as adventurous and gung-ho, but your poem reveals the humanistic side of the loneliness and hardships that they endured. A truly enjoyable read.

|Karen, such a moving "Prism of Endearment". The emotions of love, pride and uncertainty are ringed within a circle of joy and understanding. A work worthy as a monument for the personal retrospects of many. Sailors or no. May this day be filled with love and joy for you my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|This poem, to me, is one huge metaphor. It reminds me of my Uncle Mac who served in World War II and barely survived the Bataan Death March and Japanese prison camps. He came home weighing less than one hundred pounds to a wife who didn't know him and nightmare which consumed him. He died a broken man in a nursing home in Ft. Worth, Texas, a decorated, beaten man.|
