    JanPerry: Awesome, so unexpected too!

JanPerry: The difference in the spelling of "learnt" and "learned". I use the English/British version of learnt. I've had many others say it is spelt learned, but the dictionary says both spellings are correct. I am Australian, we often use the British spelling of words. Please understand this difference.

    LisaMay: It's about time others learnt this is an international site. We from downunder have to accept Mom instead of Mum, ass instead of arse etc.
    March 24, 2022 at 9:46AM
    K. Lang-Slattery: I totally agree that either spelling should be accepted. Though an North American from the US, I use English spellings when I'm writing a story that takes place in England.

    JanPerry: Thanks for all these replies.

JanPerry: Omg I just did a book review and ten people turned up. Good for a small town.

    GinnieD: That is good for a small town. Good for you! Have fun with your book reviews. Interesting way to meet new people, too.
    September 27, 2018 at 6:51AM
    JanPerry: Yeah, it spun me out a little, with the questions. Thank you GinnieD.

JanPerry: I must stop writing while lying on my bed. It comes out all wrong.
September 24, 2018 at 11:50PM
    Dean Kuch: Yeah, my writing always comes out sorta flat when I do the same thing, Jan.
    September 27, 2018 at 10:35AM
    JanPerry: Yes. Thanks mate

JanPerry: Hi. Firstly and foremost I try to correct spelling, then word usage in all of my reviews. Sorry for any confusion about my methods. Jan.

JanPerry: I'm sick and tired of being reminded of death every single day, on the news and programs on television. Celebrate life and what you have. Stop all this moaning about death.

    Dean Kuch:
    by Jan Perry

    Early morning starts my day
    As the call of nature makes it's way into my heart
    I look for you but you have left me again
    Your shirt tails hang, your coat lies in a heap
    Where did you go to this time as I sleep?

    I look for your trail, a dish, a sock left there but once again you elude me.
    It isn't fair.

    As time moves on I realise you are gone for good.
    No one can fill the cavern which is my soul.
    Emptiness waits.

    Each day brings more problems, new challenges
    I must commit to.

    Your leaving has left an empty shelf of sighs,
    where laughter once rang true.

    We all face the inevitability of death one day, Jan. And we all should feel free to write about those feelings too...even you.
    July 10, 2018 at 9:51PM
    JanPerry: Thanks Dean. That's a good reminder and I'll keep it in mind. I have conveyed sadness in "Morning". However, I find death both morbid and terrifying, so I try not to approach the subject.
    July 12, 2018 at 12:21AM

JanPerry: I still have a lot to learn about writing and poetry.
June 12, 2018 at 4:12PM
    mrsmajor: Me Too...its all a learning experience that doesn't end...but its also something I greatly enjoy..

JanPerry: What if we had "Peace Day" for one day of the year. No arguments, no bullying allowed. No wars allowed ever....

Oh Jan, dream on!
October 31, 2017 at 12:46AM
    Jannypan (Jan) : No one could decide what day--they would argue, fuss, & fight over which one.

    DR DIP: why can't we make it every day?
    October 31, 2017 at 3:48AM
    JanPerry: Oh jannypan, you're too funny!
    October 31, 2017 at 8:28AM
    TAB_that's me: I would love it! I agree with Dip, but that is too big of dream...

JanPerry: Jerry Lewis died 20th August 2017. So sad.
August 20, 2017 at 9:30PM
    damommy: Sorry to hear that, although I wasn't a big fan of his.
    August 20, 2017 at 11:33PM
    JanPerry: I fully loved Jerry Lewis and saw him in concert.
