Ever since my brain surgery, people have always said to me about it that I am amazing, strong, blah blah blah, but I never thought of myself that way. I had to face it, deal with, and keep going, because what other choice did I have? No big deal, just continuing. I think that feeling that way about me is what often makes me reluctant to leave comments for you, because I imagine that you too are just continuing; what other choice do you have? But I often find your entries -- to use a cliche -- inspirational. I don't leave it in comments often, but I thought I ought to say it at least once in awhile.

Best. Band. EVER.

Okay, Okay, I confess! I read your online journal almost every day. I feel like I know you well since I've known you for so long, but I'm also intrigued at how you're getting along as a adult and as a parent - with emotions and thoughts just like the rest of us, go figure! But, also your eloquent writing fascinates me. (I laugh, I cry.) You always had a way with words - big ones! I guess I question the strength of our current friendship - we haven't spoken in some time, but I hope you know that there is a special place for you in my heart and there always will be. Any time you'd like to visit San Diego...and, when we're in AZ! I promise to comment more, if that's what you'd like. I suck at lyrics - though I know your favorite band a long time ago was the Police. Am I close? -Micole

Okay, "thank you" for those lyrics - I actually got them! See how old I am? Glad you solved your mystery visitor, darling, and that he/she was complimentary about your writing. How wonderful. I think I understand how you feel about your readers (although I've got the code-thingy on my diary to stop search engines finding me) as I do tend to measure the impact of my entries on the number of notes I get. Yep, I'm a bit of a stats whore too - but mostly I'm just fascinated about what things I write that others respond to. Every time I post an entry - without fail - I think, "No-one is going to leave me a note because it's all too trivial/boring/whatever" and then I'm thrilled as can be when someone writes. Ah, what must it be like to rely on readers for book sales? I'd be a nervous wreck! Love, R xxx

Oh, yes. Great song! I happen to also like Tori Amos' cover of it, and listen to it often. One of very few covers worth listening to. Between Rich and I it's become somewhat of 'our song'.

I read... most every day. You are, in fact, a part of my daily intake of coolness, thought provoking materials, and other data. I laugh, I cry, I smile, I ponder, I frown, I think... what you do is wonderful. BAH! Here's my random submission for the day: This is was I listen to some days, mixed in with NPR. GREAT radio station - I'm currently listening to an interview with Tom Wessels concerning ecosystems and the dangers of over-simplifications. My favorite? John Daido Lori, Roshi... his talks always leave me with something, every time, even when I listen to the same one multiple times in a week. Next up? Jazz... old jazz... good stuff! Back to work!
