I know I'll probably be 'KILLED'
by Tony
for doing this(:

BUT -

life is about risk,
and sometimes friendship and concern - in this case
[cyber friendship]- rises above everything else.

This is why I'm making a thread of support
for our Tony 1003, as he has just embarked
on the road of chemotherapy..

It is often a successful.. but a long
and bumpy road..
and we're all human and need a boost along the
way.
I know he has that boost in real life
friends/family..
but let's follow it up with a cyber boost too.

Tony has long been in 'EL'S KITCHEN'
fine and very popular thread,
he has always contributed with intelligent, insightful and
informative posts.. and is our long time cyber
friend there..

I am not breaking any trade secrets as Tony
shared with us there.. his reasons for chemo.

We want to wish him THE 'VERY''VERY'
best on that journey just started..
by coming here and willing him onwards.

and if ever he wants to visit this thread
AND feels a need to> SHOUT, PRAY, SWEAR, PRAISE, CRY, LAUGH...etc

'WE' will be here for him ..all the way.

alternatively,
if he wants to tell me
'F Off, and mind my business'
that too will be honoured..
by letting this thread fade ...

BUT....

at least, in real good faith..

let's give it a try.

Dear Tony,
Please accept my most sincere apology for my behaviour a few days ago. I have thought long and hard about what happened, and my insensitive, imperceptive, and uncaring remarks in reply to your post

I now realise how very upsetand angry you must have been.

I am honestly really sorry for creating the situation which I know I should have handled better. I admit that I was in the wrong and can only say how sorry I am. I can promise you that this will never happen again and hope that you will give me the opportunity to prove this to you, if you would allow me to do so in the near future.

I understand that it might be difficult for you to accept my apology but hope that my guilt, my shame and the truthful extenuation of regret will help ease any hurt I may have caused you.

hey Capt... I was going to make a thread , but I was sure you wanted to remain silent

as you know Capt. jarhead/squadie we have seen our share.. all I have to offer is the deepest respect for you ...

not as a fine sailor/accomplished skier or a very articulate -educated-well mannered person , but a fitting member of the realm

but as a father ... I pray that you pass your strength upon your 1st mate and crew...

I love you as a person to a person SIR

I know this is between Tony and yourself
BUT, may I say I was VERY impressed by your above post,
being human, we ALL make mistakes,
It takes courage and character for us to
recognise them and apologise;

You have shown that courage and
character here today.

Kudos:.

Thank you so very much Grace, your kind words add comfort to this tortued soul ........

"To err is human, as you rightfully point out.....and to forgive us our trespasses is surely divine.

I remember so very well those wonderful words of Saint Augustine...

"Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance."

Sending you my warm regards
Adrian.

Hardly

I find it hard
to turn inwards
when all my life has
been outwards, forwards, new words
but I hardly know why.

gravity pulls my body silently,
effortlessly to earth, as I
begin to drift in the stratosphere
a bird's eye view, I see everything
except nothing, which I know im
looking for.

yet, I hardly know why

I hardly know why
I feel betrayed.
so alone in this vacuum.
will I weep into the blackness, or
must I just light it on fire.
send smoke signals, call the doctor,
he is lying here slumbering....
his visions went unanswered
unjustified, unsaid.

I hardly know why
I landed on earth.
I'm calling out loud, but im getting
the reverse.

I hardly know why
my emotions seem scattered
so invasive, agressive, and frankly too many
I can't stop,
can't see,
overload
help me.

but I hardly know why

and I hardly know me.



The disappeared.

Don't worry - we all post things on here that we shouldn't - it's part of the topix world. No offence taken, please don't give it any further thought and thank you for the generosity of your post.
