from mistresslink :
how was the concert? sorry, just couldn't fit it in... [that's what she said]
from luvabeans :
"i love opinions" ... i love that comment. and how very long overdue my visit was. thanks.
from katy-bug :
Feeling much better, thank you for asking! No more steel, no more weaving cars. It's been a pleasant last couple of days. How are your days?
from hissandtell :
Thank you again for your kind note, darling. I often drop in on you too, and always enjoy the visit. Love, R xxx
from thatgrrrl :
I was here..... :)
from quotheraven :
Well I'm so pleased to have made you feel ooey and gooey! Now you can relate to how your words make me feel! :) I do love playing games with my little legacies. We can do it together, think together, just BE together and it's really nice and fulfilling. I see YOU'VE been busy with your journal! You're so enigmatic!
from alicewonders :
... really, it's difficult to shut me up... but for some reason, I can't find the words I want to put here. Thanks for peeking in ... and sharing your *smile*; it made one cross my lips as well. xo~ Alice
from quotheraven :
I decided to come back for a little while and you're the first person I wanted to say hello to. I trust that you're well and have thought of me from time to time as I have you.
from its-a-newday :
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! I really appreciate it. =)
from alwaysinhim :
*twidles thumbs while she waits* =P
from suzannadanna :
Thank you for the sweet note, that was very kind.
from mistresslink :
oh good music is always worth a long drive...but i've only made the drive for the likes of bowie and the cure so far...not for a bunch of hippies in an orange grove...smirk
from lostoblivion :
Speaking words that show no light or difference is defaming but to place the characters in a delicate rhythm that they fall and sway beating hearts into vivid life is a masters work of promise. In other words seeing life written in truth and honesty instead of spoken in some insincere babble is a welcome change.
from mistresslink :
hm. tempting..i'll tell mom about it but she's probly not going to go for it, b/c it's a 3 hour drive from bradenton. i'll let you know. what's all this about kinky sex? and did you refer to me as a virgin princess?
from mistresslink :
i feel sorry for you. niagara falls didn't seem like much of a place to live, despite pretty water. canada side anyway. of course i noticed mulder's apt number was 42. then again from 1998-2000 i noticed everything there was to notice about mulder. are you on something? can i have some?
from alwaysinhim :
so if I sent you an email it would get answered? (unlike all my other poor neglected emails =P)
from iwilltellyou :
five months in, and it is turning out to be the best year ever. thankyou, again, friend. :)
from annie-m-s-b :
yea right, you didn't call me back. That's great babe about the up grade!!! hugs
from moonbaby8u :
And thats excatly what I plan to do...one ...day...at...a...time(might be long days..but its still one day!!)
from jnickole :
Hahahaha. Beautiful!
from augustdreams :
I wonder the same thing sometimes. But then I think that's what writers do. Lovecraft said once that the worlds we build are no less valid than the physical world we inhabit. And I agree. Writing is... mmmmm. It defies easy description. It's my passion, my joy, my escape and my salvation. Yes, btw, you do have a lot of reading ahead of you! ;) That's another thing that sends my heart sailing. Having other people care about the characters I created, enough to laugh and cry with them, worry for their safety and celebrate their triumphs. It just doesn't get any better than that.
from annie-m-s-b :
YOU GO BABE! And thank you for the hippie laugh! Hugs
from kilowatt :
"my mind kept swimming swiftly around through the convoluted waterways of my consciousness, like a restless aquatic organism." ~ Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase ~ I have sent you an email today; please check your inbox for it. "It's a Zen thing, like how many babies fit in a tire." ~ Corky St. Clair, Waiting for Guffman ~ May you make a conscious decision to think of a world filled with love, hope, peace, and prosperity. May you choose to see the world the way you want it to be and not as it appears to be. Namaste.
from kilowatt :
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank and honor you for the distinct pleasure of allowing me to be able to plunge into the nourishing, unfathomable, clarion waters of friendship with Shannon. The most sincere thanks that I can muster belong to you. If you had not mentioned and linked my diary within an October 2004 entry of yours, Shannon would have never contacted via email on the tenth of October in 2004. Please know that I will always venerate you for your involvement and association in acquainting me with Shannon. I am tremendously grateful for the blessing of knowing Shannon, for I am acutely ennobled by her friendship. May you dream a colossal vision of thankfulness into being and be sure to include yourself.
from alwaysinhim :
What do you think is going on? (and I do not mean that as a smartaleck reply.. I am truly curious as to what you have gathered from what you've read).
from mare-ingenii :
Thank you so much. As for the layout - I must give all credit to moviegrrl. Anything pretty about my site is due all to her.
from worldwar24 :
YES. CURSIVE. Download "The Radiator Hums" from saddle-creek.com - it'll change your life, I promise.
from breakangel :
I've always admired people who update their diaries consistently. I'll be gone for six months and then come back and post every day for a year, only to take another hiatus the minute people start to depend on me. Sick cycle, I guess. I've been reading your archives for an hour or so, and one of your more recent posts caught my eye. You and I share an interesting love/hate relationship with the idea of roommates. I'm intensely lonely without them, driven to insanity with. Glad to know I'm not the only one!
from lavanotes :
Thanks for stopping by. :) You totally cracked me up. Good luck with your trip. Sounds like hectic fun.
from adoggy07 :
was looking at your music list, (you have quite a many # of links from your site!) and if you haven't listened to Cursive yet, they come quite highly recommended. "sweet baby don't cry your tears are only alibis to prove you still feel you only feel sorry for yourself and that's how you thrive your sorrow's your goldmine so write some sad songs about me screaming your agonies, playing the saint" [The Marytr]. Might be a little harsh for ears at first hear. If you like mellow.. songs recommended by same band are The Recluse and Driftwood. =)
from rotted :
haha... i'm glad you don't come just for the cracks! that was awesome by the way... made me smile. thanks.
from hissandtell :
Thank you, darling. I always appreciate your kind thoughts and witty words. Love, R xxx
from jnickole :
thanks. it is probably because we are soulmates.
from spicychicken :
haha thanks for your comment :D
from alwaysinhim :
*hugs* Thank you.
from alwaysinhim :
okay, I'm reminding you then... REPLY TO MY EMAILS.
from timdangerous :
I sent an email friend, I'm sure its one of the thousand that was sorted as spam. Maybe it'll show up. Take care and be well friend.
from radiogurl :
I can't promise to come back regularly but I found your most recent entry hit frighteningly close to home. I nearly lost my eldest daughter to a serious suicide attempt and myself lived through a profound, extended (decades long) depression. While kind words and love can certainly help, the only reasonable assurance is immediate and professional help. I hope that z0tl finds that help, and soon...
from a-rosewithin :
Ric, you are amazing and many of your thoughts are simply profound and inspire evermore thought. I THANK YOU for your inspiration - for those I discovered via your writings. I THANK YOU for leaving notes that have inspired entries like: "O Men!" I THANK YOU for your own entries that have inspired my own thoughtfulness/entries - reassurance that I am on the right path like: "Beauty Through Openly Sharing", and I THANK YOU for the many, many letters you inspired that I wrote and shared with you once upon a time. I still stop by to read you and I enjoy those positive and uplifting thoughts that inspire us to reach higher and deeper. Someday soon I hope to hear of when you find all that you dream of.//\//\ In regards to my positivity, it is a daily decision - moment by moment - one day at a time - reminding myself to focus on all I do, do; all I have vs. all I don't do and all I don't have. Not always easy to do; yet, little steps add up, don't they! Really, I have much to be thankful for and that is what I focus on. I THANK YOU for seeing the LIGHT side of me. I am glad and always hope that, that is what comes through in my letters. The light and dark are always there. The light I try to focus on and the dark I try to embrace vs. run away from. Both help me move forward. //\//\ Come hither friend, and you shall see my many thorns .... I'm always in need of pruning and I welcome other's gardening techniques! =P Ric, you are loved from afar, yet very near in heart. ~Shannon
from timdangerous :
I haven't *noted* you in quite a while, and you are quite a *notable* person. Be well my friend!
from anne-hardy :
Hey there! In answer to your question, yes I made CD's with pretty much all of the songs on, and most definitely had them all on my hard drive. You would not believe how much I wish I had some of them with me while I was travelling! Glad that you enjoyed some of them as much as I have, and I hope you're okay :)
from kilowatt :
May you experience today as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.
from emperorincxt :
hmm i opened this window and then got distracted.. so i dont remember what I originally wanted to say.. so I will just say hi. and i hope you are sleeping well tonight. byefornow.
from clarity25 :
That was such a beautiful entry, there was so much in it..I can't even begin to comment on one particular part. The ending was profound and touching. Your writing is always like that. Thank you for your last note, It was extremely helpful to me when I received it. It helped me put things in the right perspective. Thank you.
from not-a-gypsy :
hmmm and why are hips over-rated, where did we get this from?
from evoen :
thanks candoor xox ~hugs~
from evoen :
thanks candoor xox ~hugs~
from annie-m-s-b :
"Everything In this book maybe wrong" ~Richard Bach~ I don't believe any more, my hubby has been sleeping around on me for months. I'm going to AZ to rest up from love kicking the shit out of me! Just plain had it, not really going to try anymore. The "one" is all in the mind.
