PERSONAL NOTE!

HELLO!

I'm Nellieanna Hay and you are here at my Oasis.
I heartily welcome you here!
My site is a labor of love for nearly 20 years, now.

From its rash idea and beginnings, I knew I wanted it to be
my personal internet home; so I knew that I would need to
build & furnish it myself from the ground up.

It mattered and I also knew
that I must BE here, personally, to welcome you.
I didn't prefer to appeal to vast "hits",
but just to people with whom I relate and vice-versa.

So thanks for visiting my virtual home!
I'll try to keep it fun and fresh so it shares
an overflowing of heart, soul, and ideas.
Usually, whenever you visit you'll discover things
you haven't yet investigated.
There are many sections and pages in each ones to be probed.

So - I hope you'll find it worth exploring
if and when you return again and again.

Just click any of their links which you find
on this Directory page.
When you get to a page, there will be links
and easy transportation to other areas.
Just Njoy!
Leave any tension at the doorstep.
just unwind, kick off your shoes there, too -
and get comfortable.
You are among friends at this address!

Oh, and - please - sign the quest book to
let me know you visited and your responses!

Let there be
No imitation!
There is real enough
To go around!

REVOLVING DOOR - a poem I wrote thinking how life IS change.
If there is no change - then, no life.
Clinging to it or skirting around it trying to
hold onto the past or fix the future
loses it.
