Poinciana was good for me, and I was good for her. For almost eight years (she belonged to my neighbor the first six years of her life before she decided to move in with me) Poinciana was my companion, my friend, my master, my entertainer, my audience, my consoler, and of course my favorite model. She went on to her next life on August 10, 2010. I still cry over her.--Joe Snoe
Hiatus update: I don't want to say I'm whipping through requested reading, cause I'm really not. Each manuscript takes about an hour per each 50 pages (reading) and another hour on the reply to the author. More if there are extensive notes.
Finding those hours has been easier with the blog content taken care of by readers and animals! Thank you all!
