from tyd :
Thanks for the gbook love. Happy New Year to you too! :o)
from trinityboy :
Hello...with a rather dodgy memory I can't recall whether or not I said Happy New Year back at you. If not, I have now!
from aquietboy :
thank you for your kindness. things like that make it worth it.
from pantypulldwn :
feliz navida y prospero ano nuevo!
from mugwhump :
Here I am, very belatedly, to wish you a wonderful, fulfilling, extraordinary 2005!!! Thanks for your note, I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner. I guess the holiday's put me into slow-mode.
from i-am-jack :
Happy New Year to the both of you too. ;^}'
from realitykills :
Your words have a way of bending and forming into a path that is familiar and real and dream-like all at the same time. I just wanted to tell you that it seems very odd and fragile and I've never seen anything like it before.
from a-rosewithin :
Regarding 12/4 - "remembering": And even here - virtually ... time proves all and can lead to more and real, yet only if I dare. All these Shadows ... lead to reality ... to real eyes, real skin, a soft and welcoming smile, a real heart...a lovely hand to hold within my own - if I but dare. It takes two to reach out and one to welcome in - for me that can often be the most courageous thing to practice - Accepting graciously when others reach out. I enjoyed your extremely thoughtful post today Ric. Love, ~Shannon
from miame :
Happy Happy New Year to you too!!! Sandy
from moretoknow :
Just wanted to say thank you for the note. The entry, though, is part of a sort of series that's been lasting for a few months. It relates to a whole "Garden State" finding yourself kind of mentality if you will and refers mainly to the fact that I used to be fantastic at analytical writing especially with literature. My actualy creative writing skills suck ass. We all know that. Thanks, though.
from rotted :
this diary isn't linked to myspace at all... i've never posted anything about it there nor have i ever provided a link between the two in any way. i did know it was him because his face is in all the pictures... even the normal ones that he posted on myspace... i wasn't upset about it more like weirded out... i definately have a sense of humor i guess it just didn't translate in that entry... lol!
from bethany9 :
I took some time to investigate your site, your style of writing is very unique... i'll be back
from invisibledon :
Happy New Year to you as well and hope your yule was cool :)
from kilowatt :
"Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don't open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down the dulcimer. Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground." ~ Rumi in Open Secret ~ Your latest note to me contained some of the most exquisite words of praise I have ever been fortunate enough to receive. I thank you immensely for your chivalrous gesture of offering me your words. Words of effervescence. Words of beauty. Words of affection. Words of experience. Words of understanding. Words of joy. Words of peace. Words of desire. Words of dreams. I thank you for the kaleidoscope of words that you have shared with me. I can only feebly and inarticulately thank you for the delectable feast of this new and developing friendship with you. I am amazed by your generous and thoughtful nature. I thank you for holding me in your thoughts. I thank you for the lyrical beauty of your words. I thank you for your charming and captivating demeanor. I thank you for considering me worthy enough for your friendship. I thank you for the experience of getting to know you. "To cement a new friendship, especially between foreigners or persons of a different social world, a spark with which both were secretly charged must fly from person to person, and cut across the accidents of place and time." ~ Cornelia Otis Skinner in The Ape in Me, 1959 ~ Regarding my status as an educator, you must realize that I have shown or revealed to you nothing that you did not know already to be true. You underestimate your own power and greatness. You have such an eye and affinity for beauty. You just need to learn to fully embrace who and what you are; a person with such remarkable and diverse talent and a vast capacity to love. Nonetheless, I thank you for expressing the nature of the impact that I impart onto you. "The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own." ~ Benjamin Disraeli ~ Flamed on by the cascade of your admiration and your steadfast faith in my words, I am inspired to be a better person. I thank you again for your kindness and thoughtfulness. May you realize today that every situation in your life, no matter how difficult it may appear, is the beginning of something new and wonderful for you. May you imagine all the difficult circumstances in your life turning into opportunities for greater blessings to manifest. I am certain that you will grow, heal, prosper, and succeed in and through everything that you do. I send you a wagon train made of Fierce Desire to encircle you, protecting your commitment to create a meaningful life. Once again, your generous and exquisite nature makes me so joyous that I erupt into song. "I'll be singing to you sweetly from my window in the tower of song." ~ Leonard Cohen
from a-rosewithin :
Regarding "party on" ...I see you edited ... LOL I like your very adorable save (not that it needed saving)! Now remember ... "powerful energy source" Think about it ... A powerful energy source kind of just ZAP's ya right? I'm just a little current ... I'm a zipper! Kim is Zapper! I am happily zapped by Kim's amazing and empowering entries ...everyday! And when I grow up I wanna be a Zapper - like Kilowatt! Now, if you ever need a happy lil' zipper .... you know where to come! zip zip zip ziiiip! (that was really bad wasn't it) LOL Hush! (insert cheesy grin here)!
from liquidhuman :
Hppi N Jier!
from redsirenbody :
same to you, love. same to you. L
from hamiltonian :
I need to drink some alcohol
from discothekid :
You have yourself an amazing New Year yourself!
from moony68 :
happy new year to you too. :)
from less-than3 :
happy new year to you! :)
from agoatnamedaz :
You're a sweetie. Happy New Year to you, too.
from jesbohn :
Hey! you left me a guestbook wishing me happy new year. But for the life of me, I can't place how I know you. Care to refresh my memory. Thanks. -jes
from awareofavoid :
happy new year <3
from euphoria21 :
I do hope you enjoyed this past year and that this year brings you new hope, new memories, new adventures, and new love. No regrets( well, maybe a few aren't so bad!). I tend to disappear, but I'm still around. I think it funny that you can still write to me even though I am not/no longer on your list of 'favorites'. How did you manage such a trick?!
from for-you-only :
Happy New Year! And let it be better than the last. ~Pink
from impetuousme :
well merry happy new year to YOU too.. sorry so long in replying.. i've been offline for a couple of weeks ... anyway, looking forward to what YOU write in the coming year... take care.. and if possible, keep you chin up in the air... if you dare... --S.A.M.--
from wildrosie :
Thank you for the note, and I enjoyed reading your viewpoint on the word "love". I have been accused of splitting hairs when I qualify exacly what I mean when I use it. There is "I love you" meaning I care about you. Then there is "I love you" meaning that I would walk to the ends of the earth for you, and through the fiery pits of hell. It is very important to know just what someone means when they use those words. All the best! Rosie
from pureone :
thank you for leaving me a note! Your diary is such a wonderful piece of internet to find and read through, I look forward to peeking in even more :)
from make-it-stop :
Thank you for the note. Happy New Year to you and yours, also!
from omnipre5ence :
:) Thank you.
from a-rosewithin :
Ric, Thank you for the very sweet and thoughtful note you left me this morning. Thank you, for sharing the Beauty YOU see in me. Love, ~Shannon
from areistia :
Happy New Year to you as well :)
from bettyalready :
Happy New Year! You gave me a reminder about Will Wheaton! My sister in law told me about his blog and I kept forgetting to look it up.
from schampy :
user: tah password: dah original, eh?
from ravynespeaks :
Thank you sweetie!! Happy New Year to you as well. May it be filled with peace, happiness, and joy!
from riskamemory :
Happy New Year to you too!
from watty :
Happy 2005, too! Here's to a great year and a bit of fun tossed into the mix. =)
from fuzzycircles :
thank you :) and you too *hugs*
from poolagirl :
Thanks so much for your holiday wish. May 2005 be filled with blessings and adventures!
from hamiltonian :
I try for for the realist rather than the idealist or the optimist.
from nightngale :
Merry, merry happy new year to you, too. :)
from kissoncheek :
Why thank you, and a merry happy new year to you too!! I have a feeling this year will be different and of great historical significance. There are so many people, upset and politically disgruntled, in this country and others. I feel that this will be the year where the spirit-like whisps of ideas that have been floating around will materialize into action. I've been looking at the mountain for so long, but this is the year I will take the first step to climb it, and hopefully, many others will too.
from chsturtle :
Thank you, happy new year to you too :)
from liviasgarden :
Thanks for your kind thoughts. All the best to you and yours this year and beyond!
from omorfia :
Merry Happy Whatzit to you also, friend. :) I hope 2005 brings you plenty of love and happy times. Kisses!
from pipersplace :
Happy New Year to you also. I hope 2005 is a great year for you.
from krazieespy :
happy 2005!
from catz-eyes :
hiya :) first, thank you for the New Year wishes. i hope that 2005 proves t be a wonderful year for you and yours. secondly, i admire the way you're archiving your old notes - that's a helluva lot of work! too bad Dland doesn't have that feature built in, eh? kind regards to you, =^..^=
from p-brain :
Happy New Year to you too. =)
from nicky-d :
Thank you, and happy holidays back to you! :)
from erato :
Happy 2005 to you, too!
from banefulvenus :
Happy New Year to you too. I hope it's a good one!! :)

from hothead :
happy 2005 to you too! thank you ever so much for your lovely note, AND for using "dichotomous" in your profile. i am SUCH a word whore. anyway...come by anytime. :)
from neangel :
Happy New Years to you as well!!! big hugs!
from the-thinline :
happy new years to you as well. i hope yours was more enjoyable than mine, as mine was spent alone wondering why it is that those who claim to care about me end up lying and not showing care? enough of my depression, thank you very much for your comment, and you must know i'm envious of your intelligence. take care {love}{me}
from a-rosewithin :
Happy New Year Ric!! Thank you always for your inspirations - all of them! Loved your note idea and in fact I was going to do the same thing! GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE! It is a lovely way to cherish and to remember others 'LOVE NOTES' as I like to call them ... that will probably be my title for them as well. Know that you are loved, ok? And I wish you always the BEST! Love from a Rose!
from herdarlinsin :
Hello. Velvet-heart here. I got your note on my old diary and thought it'd be nice to let you know where I have been for the last 8 months. I apologize for not letting you know where I have been. Hope that with the feeling of the holidays that you can forgive me. Happy New Years babe. *hugs*
from bornearly :
Best to you too, Can-Do-er. I was hoping for an Orlando gig on our Jan. tour, but we won't be anywhere near you, unfortunately. Unless we have to go far and wide to find any fruit to send back...
from dangerspouse :
"In spite of everything"? LOL, I love qualified holiday greetings! Hey kiddo, I hope you have a terrific holiday yourself, and best wishes for a splendiferous 2005 ahead. (BTW, I love your idea of archiving previous notes. Well done!)

from small-talk- :
You said you would be looking forward to it...... I'm back in the Woods. Why are you always right about me? Kind of scary. Love, Gretel
from alwaysinhim :
well, you see, I just can't help myself. I'm nosy, lol.
from kilowatt :
I am at a loss of words to formulate the proper response to your incredibly generous, astoundingly overwhelming, sentiments of admiration for me, in the form of your notes, comments, and entries. I thank you for the treasured gift that is your words of loveliness. May today be a day of sparkling vibrancy, energy, passion, productivity, and immense fulfillment for you.
from alwaysinhim :
sorry about the two notes. It was an accident, I swear! Really! I wasn't trying to annoy anyone! lol
from alwaysinhim :
Aww, you flatter me way too much =P Soon, I will get a big head... And then it will EXPLODE!!! lol Oh, and you might be able to get me to sing with you some time. I like to, usually by myself, but sometimes with other people.
