i have been here for a while and have gone the gamut from hell, mere frustration, tears at empathic pain, and tears of gratitude for finally finding what i have never had previously...acceptance and unconditional sharing. this is belated, for i have had to take a virtual hiatus from the forums for my own well being, but i want to to welcome you to the brotherhood. we stand here united in a way that transcends age, nation, culture, and, blessedly, at times even gender, through our devoted partners. we stand together here. welcome. i have been, and continue to be, in a dark place right now where that switch to flip of old cannot be reached, but i, as many here, feel your journey as no other can. thank you for sharing it, and embracing ours.
- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it
