first thank you for reading and listening to my posts -

by posting here and through your responses you have given me witness and feedback and much appreicated encouragement through a very difficult but expansive and vitalizing period in my life -

thank you again for being there -

often times i disconnected because of the ever present fear i live in - like many of us our growth is evolving -
in this - i have found that i am able to now live in
the moment - and experience the moment - without total fear -

though i am extremely afraid of people maybe through
getting to know myself - this knowledge will humanize and
de- demonize them -

the ones who introduced me to my life were horors - and gave me a standard (not a relationship)
that was unliveable -
and so a break down -

but enough pity on myself -

you all have listened and given to me so generously
and unconditionally as a fellow survivor -
and friend (and the knowing of what that means)

THANK YOU -

and I AM HERE FOR YOU WHENEVER YOU NEED -
