Welcome back to our new forum!

In case you didn't hear, our beloved forum has been offline since December 15th for technical reasons. After many hours of trying to diagnose and correct the problem, we came to the conclusion that it would be better to build a new forum that is more stable and secure.

The good news is that the data from our previous forum was not damaged and will be 'archived' so that we can reference its many beautiful poems, stories and ideas.

The forum you are looking at now represents a 'new chapter,' if you will, and our hope is that over time it will be just as special as the last chapter was.

As you have a look around, you'll notice that everything looks and feels very similar to the old forum. There are a number of differences though that we think you'll appreciate.

Before you start exploring though, please click on the 'Members' link to see if you've been pre-registered.

If you have been pre-registered:

1. Click on the 'Log In' link at the top of the page.

2. Click on the 'Lost Password' link.

3. Enter your username and your email address.

4. You will then be emailed your new password.

5. Log in with your new password.

6. Click on the 'Profile' link to update your password, signature and profile information.


If you have not been pre-registered:

1. Click on the 'Register' link at the top of the page.

2. Follow the instructions.

3. If you were a member of our previous forum, please use your old username.

And lastly, if you have any questions at all please feel free to email or send me a private message. I'll do my best to get back with you as soon as possible.

On behalf of our entire Inspiration Peak family, I'd like to thank you for your patience during this transition. I'd also like to invite you to make yourself at home and post a new topic or reply today. The more we share with each other, the more beautiful this next chapter will be...

With love and appreciation!

~ Ron

You are SO very welcome dear Lion~*!

One thing this experience made me realize is that the Peak is not the same without the people... and I can't tell you how happy I am to have our 'special place' back.

As far as the work is concerned... I don't really consider it work because I love what I do. Actually, I invented a new word a few years ago... to describe something that's not really 'work' and not really 'play'.... it's a wonderful combination of the two. I call it 'plerk'. :D:

By the way dear Lion~*.... I LOVE your avatar! It's like you were reading my mind because just yesterday I was thinking how nice it would be to find a nice avatar for you.

Wishing you a beautiful January night!

~ Ron

I can't tell you how happy I am to have our 'special place' back.
I couldn't agree more. As you can see, I was too late to continue a stranger, so now I'm Sparky, a name given me about 25 years ago by a dear friend of mine.

I love the new look and it feels so good to be home again.

Much love to all,
Barbie

Sparky is a cute name. Besides, you really don't feel like a stranger anymore to us. Welcome back, Barbie! luv

Thanks, (((Lion))) & (((Christine))). Ya, I wasn't feeling like a stranger anymore, but I was feeling a lot more "Sparky". :D:

Comes a time to turn the page and start a new chapter. Here's to our new chapters.

Much love,
