Two Weeks Hiatus

Dear Whispers’ Family,

I’ve had a couple of rough weeks with my health.  This is a hard decision for me as I treasure my time with you, but I need to close Whispers for two weeks.

I would appreciate it if you would limit emails to only those necessary and post questions or communications in the comments section below, which I will try and address as promptly as I can.  In the meantime, I ask you to carry the beacon by reading and commenting on the poetry that our talented writers have shared over the years.

Please keep me your prayers.  I will keep you in mine.

Blessings and best wishes,

Karen
