MJ and Don--

What a great way for me to start my morning--reading your posts reminds me of the courage and patience I need to just "be" where I am.

I'm the type of guy who always seeks the answer, the conclusion, the fix (quick or other), a way to Force a Solution.

Thanks for the reminder that it is possible for me to simply accept the uncertainty that is part of life. The ambiguity of hope and fear.

You both have my admiration and support. Just because we may find ourselves in the dark does not mean we must be there alone. Thanks for reaching out your hand this morning. I needed one to hold on to.

"...we die of cold, and not of darkness."

I'm with you guys and happy to be.

Love to my brothers,

Despite the fact that we share the same avatar, I could also share the words you used to describe your self. I think it is harder to accept yourself when you don't quite know who you truely are. It's like your stuck in some inbetween world where nothing makes sense. Try as you may, nothing seems to ever make you understand. At least if you know who you were you could deal with it and then move on. But that's not quite the case because nothing is that cut and dry.
Well, things seem to be getting better for me but that's not saying much. Those pessimistic days still cloud my head.
Take care,

Hey MJ
Ditto on all you said. Just want to be able to experience love and emotion without the conflict of my own mind games.

Also wanted to say hello
