  1. Thanks for stopping by and following! I’ll have to have a read though of your stuff, it certainly looks interesting!

  2. Thanks for the like and follow. You’re a very serious about your humor young man (I’m 41 so I can say “young man”).

  3. HI there! You were kind enough to stop by and like my blog post earlier today – Re-discovering a long lost love – Thank you so much! I have since decided to move the post over to my existing blog, so if you wanted to visit again the address has changed – http://opinionatedandcuriouskins.wordpress.com/2012/11/08/re-discovering-a-long-lost-love/

    I really like your generic picture of a write, above :)

    Thanks again for visiting, liking and following.

  4. Heyy! Thanks a lot for the follow, I’ve had a quick look through some of your poetry and I’m really enjoying it! Can’t wait to properly explore it and read more :)
    Thanks again!

  5. Sean, your dreams and vision have a great platform from which to launch. And your take-off is starting beautifully. Thanks for the “follow.” I too will follow you, gathering inspirational stardust from your success. Peace – within and without. gwen

  6. First of all, thanks for the follow. Secondly (and much more importantly) – wow! I think your poetry is stunning. I don’t remember the last time I read something as good that relates to the world as it is now or at least as I see it, that sort of mirrors my own experience of it and puts it in such strong, evocative words. Wow, wow. Really looking forward to following you!

    1. No, unfortunately I’m only fluent in English, I used to know a little Japanese and I can understand some Spanish but I haven’t gotten around to expanding my language learning yet.
