A Poem for Ben

A Poem By LoriAnn // 7/1/2010


Being homeschooled can come with as many “issues” as blessings.
Even the best of parents cannot provide for a budding writer the
Necessary environment of encouragements and
Occasional criticism he or she needs;
For even the best of parents find it hard to be truly critical of their beloved child’s
Artistic endeavors.
Perhaps that is why God has provided on this earth, through the
Remarkable resource of that Beast, the
Internet, such an amazing and wonderful place as our beloved
Community, Apricot Pie.
Our greatest gratitude and undying thanks go to our site’s founder:
The great Ben Kniaz.
Perhaps someday there will be a way to thank him for the founding of this site—
In fact, perhaps today is that day, to bring to mind
Every wonderful comment we’ve been given on our work and every
Idea or inspiration given by the writers who make this
Site their home.
Or the constructive criticism we’ve all received at one time or another which gave us new
Understanding of our craft—or that which we would like to claim as our craft.
Really, all of this—the encouragement, the criticism, the great fun we have—
Heralds from the invention of one man, who was
Eager to provide a place of expression for homeschooling writers: and that place is Apricot Pie.
Rally round, friends, as we give three cheers of thanks and appreciation for
Our good friend, Editor Ben Kniaz!!!
