Hey, Nathan, Puppy,
I want to thank you two for responding in the way that you have. I think that you two are also the youngest of us, are you not? I've got to be one of the most senior of this "class." I'm encouraged the way you guys have reached out to us "older" members.
But then, I guess, we're all pretty much the same age, dealing with the little, frightened boys that most of us are. Some of us have managed to grow a little older, with the help of therapists, friends, maybe a partner or two, and the guys, here. That includes you. Appreciate the insight that you have and don't be afraid to ask for help when you want or need it. You're a wonderful addition to this august group of guys. I might even feel open enough with them to go on a future retreat; geez, did I just say something about trust? Me?
Thanks again. Woz really struck something in me and I'm happy that I was able to share it.
