Kate - I've got to ask. Why are you so afraid of Our Salon?

Are you afraid that you will see that it's a better site for us and that you will feel that you are betraying Open? Open is just a collection of hardware and software. Kerry and the powers that be abandoned the community a long time ago. What makes Open special is the people - and they can get together (virtually) on any platform. Lorianne has provided us with a new platform that doesn't have "Lots of errors...".

The only reason the Iron Poet Challenges don't currently exist is that you and JD won't do it on Our Salon.

Missing your contribution to the community - Mark
Mark, I'm not afraid of Our Salon. I haven't even been here at Open Salon in recent times. I'm not ready to commit to just yet. I will, if and when, I'm ready. JD is there at the moment ... maybe I will be soon. We'll see.

Thank you though. I do appreciate your interest and your kind words.
Cathy! I love you too!

Now, yes, let's be clear ... I don't drink beer and I will steer clear! Happy New Year, friend so dear!
Double trouble...twice as nice!

Summer in Australia ~ nippy in the Northwest ... we're still "connected", my sweet friend! Just this morning during my sanity walk, I was thinking of you (true story) ... missing you ... and hoping that this new year has started out with the proper bang. ;-}

My mantra this year is Happy New Day ... a year is just too much to fathom following the close 2012 ... a year I have dubbed "The Year of The Carrot" (hopefully, an essay to follow). Besides, isn't today ~ this actual moment ~ all we have?

Oooh ~ I could ramble on and on here, but I won't hijack your post ... I do want to add how grand it is to me that you're still here on Open Salon ... I am, too ... no desire to "transition" to another writing forum ... circling the drain or not, Open Salon is still home to me.

~R~ Proper letter to follow soon! I'd love you to hear from you, too.
Lovely to hear your voice, Kate. Hope all is well with you and that you are finding a thousand reasons ... to smile ...
Eyespye....J!!!!! Oh can you imagine how thrilled I am to see your comment here, dear, dear and wonderful friend? I'm smiling from ear to ear! I don't doubt for one second that you were thinking of me on your walk for you too crossed my thoughts only a few days ago. Yes, we are still connected ... And what a lovely thing that is to know. Once again I chastised myself for not making the time to write and to let you know that I care. I miss you too and have wondered if you are doing okay. So write I will!

I shall wait for as long as it takes (laced with a great deal of excitement I might add) to read, "The Year of the Carrot"!

Dear gorgeous, effervescent, J... I love you and I miss you.

More to come from me soon!
Anna1liese, thankfully, the smiles seem to find me most days....:). I hope all is well for you too. And thank you for the smile you brought to me...it's so good to know you're still here too.
Hey...there you are!
Hey lady....miss your stuff.....Happy New Year to you.
JD: Yeppers, I'm here! Well ...here and there and round about ... but here feels more like home to me. Miss you.... : )

Tink: Happy New Year, buddy! Sending you good wishes ... lots of them.

Marty's Husband: Aww.... Thank you so very much. Hopefully I'll find my stride again one day and write something. I just don't know what ... but anything would be kind of nice I suppose. Happy New Year to you too ... and to Marty. I hope you are both doing okay.
I so enjoy reading your comments to comments ...

Interestingly you and I seem to be in a similar place with the writing mojo ... it does look like Open Salon may be in repair, so I'll hope for the both of us that it will reignite the passion that inspires words to the page ... it's smoldering somewhere inside us, you know? (Still, please don't hold your breath waiting for my essay!! Blue does not suit you ... ;-> )

Meantime ~ you remain in my thoughts, dear lady ~ sending you lots of love and peaceable energies ...
Hi Kate ~ this year we will enjoy, love, dance around the room by ourselves, even,
and we will give, and go on giving ~ the best.
With love,
Hey Kate!!!Happy New Year to you,too!
I am glad to find friends like you ,Kim,JD and Tinkerertink here among others.
OS is my place,too.
Hidey Ho, eyespye! Oh .... blue does not suit me?? Darn! Such a pretty colour it is too. But you know, you're right, the earthy, warm colours are my colours with yellowy-greens thrown in for good measure! ;-) And would you believe, I've started writing a letter to you? LOL!!!! Happy New Day, dear dear friend!

Hi Kim! Um.... I kind of remember saying out loud somewhere some time last yer that I was dancing around the kitchen by myself. Goodness! But what fun!!!! We should do things like that more often, huh? Smiling here, Kim. It's so good to have had you come by. I hope I will see more of you soon. Much love .... Kate

Heidi, Hi there! Happy New Year to you! And here's to OS!
Thanks so very much HNY to you too.
