They, Them

At dusk I went out the front door of the apartment building for my evening walk. Pausing in the entranceway I made conversation with another dog owner. Their dog is very friendly, a black Border Collie-mix. I stroked its head and let it lick my hand. …

Wow, Poppy, this is really extraordinary. You engage yourself with these difficult, traumatic issues, and you have a wonderful way to parse this picture into its pieces, yet pull it together for the whole picture. Analytical, yet emotional, and... in spite of what you have endured, I do not feel hate from your writing. This is very good. Keep it up.

I agree with you and sympathize. Write for yourself. I will never understand the system, myself, and some will seemingly make a lot of money, but most of us will not. You write very well, so please continue and enjoy it. My best for the holidays and the New Year!
