Subject: Your blog
Hi DD --Second Waver,
I've tried commenting a couple of times, but your blog only sends me to an e-mail form. Is that what you want? Can't we comment any more?
I've been touched by your postings these days. I'm especially touched by your latest post on how blogging is much more than words and even thoughts, it's energy flowing. When you articulated it, the truth and beauty of it just shone. I wish I could offer you a hug.
I've finished the patriotism definition, and made it a post, here:
practical patriotism,ca. 2008
My computer access has improved, and I can now go online from home again. I know your access is still compromised.
Anything happening for your son's naming ceremony? Well, I know you will post it when it happens.
Wishing you every happiness. -- sw
I'm glad to hear from you. I'm always glad to hear from you. I think I received your hug. :)
I'm not sure why the comments function isn't working. That's odd. I've been getting comments from other people. Is it possible that there's something wrong with the settings on your computer? I don't know.
The posts have really moved something for me, too. I'm piecing things together at a really fast, fierce rate. I feel the changes taking place even now as I type. The energy is what's really here with us and all around us. I think we instinctively realize it...that's what drives some us into blogland and keeps us here. That's the true nature of the "change we can count on". As those with power unravel the world real time we use what we have to knit it back together right under their noses in ways they literally cannot combat or fully contain.
We are so many, so powerful, so filled with just what we need for the task at hand. My heart breaks with hope fear pride happiness. I know it. This is what's happening. I'm glad to be hear with you and with everybody who passes through for whatever amount of time. (more tears flowing...)
Papi and I are both hoping to have our connection back at home next month. We both miss it so much.
I'll go see the definition. Thanks for taking the idea of the list of alternate definitions to heart.
Shmolee's naming ceremony is happening in the fall. I put it off so I could get a life and put things back on track with me, my relationship with him and Stinkapee, with Papi (but Papi has his own work to do on this front). We weren't ready for a celebration. Things with Ophelia are still not quite sane. I can't fix all what's happened with her/to her. I watch and make sure to not get wraoped in her family stuff...beyond what Papi insists on bringing with him.
All this to say, the naming ceremony will happen in the fall. I have to check to see when the Autumnal Equinox takes place. Do you think you'll be able to come?
Bye for now,
if what you're reading here grips you, holds you, fascinates you, provokes you, emboldens you, pushes you, galvanizes you, discomfits you, tickles you, enrages you so much that you find yourself returning again and again...then link me.
