To the readers of my poetry blog Poems Old and New. It was recently hacked by some moron who made it appear as if readers would get contaminated. That was not true, but to reassure my readers I closed the blog down. I am fairly sure I wasn't being singled out, it was just that I had been surfing in sharkish waters abroad, where I should not have been. I haven't decided when and how I might resume, or even if I will. I realize I had become addicted to writing poetry, so maybe getting hacked was a blessing in disguise. I'm enjoying the vacation.
