i sat here and critiqued what to write -

telling myself bad things about me -
my faults -

and maybe nothing to say that is ok to be said
here -

but i looked around -

i thought of my good morning -
i bent down to pat a dog - that i know -
and she 'kissed' my cold face -

i laughed at myself -but sat here more -and appreciated
the posts here - and maybe what they mean to others - but also in a sense - was able to appreciate

that i am ok enough here - i am doing ok - enough -
not a bad guy -

but I AM OK WITH ME -

and feel kind of good about it -

I can go quite indulgently into my mental imagery
and visions or philosophies - and
so now -

I think I realize that amongst friends - who have let me be myself - and supported me

I want to be giving and caring back

by writing for and to you

remembering everything we all are going through -

peace and spirit

Mark

Mark,

It's too bad we see only the bad in ourselves and the good in others.

But it's very special when we see that good others see in us.

You shine, my good friend. Never forget that.

Love,

Scot

Mark - I always enjoy your posts, happy or not, and the quirky way you type. In the spirit of Scot's response above, I recently wrote one of many notes that I will give to my daughter some time in the future (after I'm gone?). It says:

Take time to look into the mirror that reflects what others see in you.

It was only after I was able to start doing that, that I was able to see that I am a pretty good guy too. Peace - John

Mark we all have warts and I defy anyone to prove me wrong. Thing is people are your friends because of who you are as a person, not what you are. And that is the real person. Too often we only see the dark side and hidden side and the damaged side of our souls. And we then tend to behave towards ourselves in a manner that is less that good for our wellbeing. Good friends see through all that crap and recognize someone with whom they can relate to and share with.
