Congratulations A-FRIEND
« on: July 08, 2006, 12:15 PM »
I take great pleasure in congratulating A-FRIEND on reaching The Willows and his 300th post.

For those of us fortunate enough to actually know him as ‘a friend’, let me say that it is indeed a privilege.  He is a very wise, educated, and strong person.  Friend has graciously led us through Black History month for several years now, and his educational posts have been truly inspiring.

One of our older members, Friend has consistently been splashing with us for over two years, and in recent months, is splashing even more.  He just posted a magnificent poem “Drink from my cup”, which I recommend everyone check out.

Thanks for the endorsement Allen, but now I have to loosen my hat for the ego trip.

How does it feel to breathe the rarified air of Willows, Friend? Congrats to you!

Thank you all for you congrats.

Voodoo Child, you are indeed correct in calling this 'rarified air',
but the freshness of this rare air started way back with my first introdcution to splash. I came upon it quite by accident looking for a poetry reader, which was promptly sent.

With the people here its been a blast of fresh 'rarified air' every since.
