Are we all supposed to know j.p.hart? Is that a name from back at Open Salon?

Whenever my courage fails me, Keith, I sit back and wait for someone with some spine to ask the question I have. I do remember catch-22, however, who made roundly entertaining contributions to OpenSalon.

I remember j.p.! How is he, do you know?

Comment by nerd cred on February 6, 2017 at 5:20pm

Hasn't he posted here? Maybe as Jack Hart?

Yup - one post, recently:

Jack spelled it Heart. Jack I remember well. I think this is different. Also, would the "for" m an it's someone else from OS? The questions are potentially endless.

(5,7,7 Haiku, not mine, Sonny & Cher's):

winters come and they go                                                                                                                                                              and we watch the melting snow                                                                                                                                                      sure as summer follows spring   

Small-cybernistic-synchronic world! I was in Wauwatosa at a bar & grill, Walters', looking for you in the America Poetry Review, then checking my phone I find this wonderful post. And yes, J.P. Hart is this James Hart and you've warmed his (my) heart. Recently I  Am-Tracked through the fog to the WI side of Ol' Man River, for a family celebration, sorrowful eye to eye handshakes, soulful embraces, hellos, how-are-yous, that respectful penultimate adios, all the while the Johnny Cash version of Ave Maria somewhere from a distance, Weddings and Wakes, that sad experience might be titled, not far from your sky-blue waters ....                         And then southeast again into the indigo darkness.

Absolutely thrilled you're around Catch, working hard I see, thank you for all those things you do!

My saludos, dear j.p., and condolences (they appear to be in order on a number of levels) and congrats as appropriate. Thank you for the haiku and for suggesting I could be found in APR. I am more than happy, more than relieved, to be found in the simple town on the other side of the St. Croix. Let that indigo darkness hold you close, next to Johnny Cash. I am working hard! I am thrilled, too, to know we're in this together, yet. Yours, c22
