This entry was just what I needed to read this morning, when I first read it, Bruce. Thank you, so much. Even as open as my journal sometimes seems, I have a hard time posting some things.

And, you'll find that I quoted you in the last entry I'm writing for tonight....

I don't think I've ever told you, or if I have recently. You are a huge role model to me. I appreciate your entries and your comments. I'm glad we met. :)

Namaste.

I know you have at least a partial solution, in that you write in a paper journal, post in other journals here, and such. I do not wish to have "another" place, but don't feel completely free to post here, at times.

I hate to say it, but I really don't have much in common with nearly my whole "friends list." That's good for getting differing perspectives and opinions, and for reading differing views of life. It is bad when you want solace or feel a need for confirmation, or justification of something you want to say. I'm not sure how to deal with that, just yet. I'm thinking on it.

Oops, I posted before I was finished!

"I don't think I've ever told you, or if I have recently. You are a huge role model to me. I appreciate your entries and your comments."

Wow. Thank you for such a nice compliment. I'm touched and also surprised. I would never have expected a dedicated feminist to call me a "role model." ;-)

It is always a surprise, too, what posts I get comments like this from. When I post something that I think "has substance" and may "get attention" it doesn't, and when I post something as disjointed and silly as this post, it sometimes actually means something to someone. I've come to realize, I don't understand much about LJ at all! But I love it!

Stick around and we'll see what happens together.

*smiles softly* Just because I'm a dedicated feminist doesn't mean I can't learn from you and look up to you. I enjoy our comment-conversations. *smiles again*

Thank you for you.
