A New Year Wish Of Peace For A Friend

This blog has lain dormant for a few months now, despite the best efforts of Catnip and others like James and Arcturus. And though all of you are very talented and passionate in your own ways, I think we all know why this blog is silent.

Over the last week or so I've been revisiting some of the most powerful, heartfelt and wrenching writing I've ever read. No matter the subject, whether rape, war in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan, American exceptionalism, or something as mundane as who controls the remote control, the kids or the elders, these writings I speak of had a magical way of weaving a story and taking me into the heart of the writer and feeling the joy, the pain, the outrage...and the love that poured forth from it.

I know not where my friend is or how he is doing. I only wish that he is in peace. That his heart remain steady. That he can know some sense of the respect and yes, love I feel for him.

It's been kind of like the Doors w/o Jim Morrison or Tupac Shakur w/only the djs and the guest mcs.

I miss him, too.

My best wishes for 2007 to all of you as well. Thank you James, catnip and Arcturus for your recent efforts.

I've been wondering, too, Super... I hope he's OK.

Terribly sorry to hear about this Janet. I haven't been paying any attention at all to those places of late - too depressing & I'm more than good enough at feeding that myself. Anyhhos -- keep in mind it's what's in yr heart & what you're doing (more than most!) that matters - really little else. Don't let the vampires suck yr energy.
{hugs 'n all dat shit . . .}

& thnx, super, but I really don't deserve it -- James & catnip do - I've been as flakey or more than anyone of late --

I do most sincerely hope that dtf is choosing to stay away, choosing to make us suffer his absence - the alternatives are, well, . . .

I miss his passion & pov, tho both can be found elsewhere -- what can't be replicated is the unique ways those blend w/ humor & the brilliant use of parody, satire & hyperbole combined w/ the tenacity to push a point to the wall, then chase it straight up to the roof . . .

pax, all
