Well I thank you.Leave it to @BigElectricKat to do the heretofore impossible: reach through the vagaries of words and layers of technology straight and directly into my soul. Sufficient words of gratitude for you—all you are, all you do here—fail me. Being your brother from another mother feels real, and like i’ve just been awarded the Dimensions Peace Prize or something.
Your words reached in and affected me so deeply, it‘s taken me until now to manage to respond.
My @ appreciation list could go on for several posts, and would definitely include everyone already on this page. Along the lines of “all jobs are essential jobs” (my personal belief), Appreciation for all who post here who bring value and positivity, no matter how frequent or seldom, no matter how many or few Likes received.
This time around i will call out two individuals i’ve not seen on this page (and i didn’t go back to read the older ones).
@stampy brings no-nonsense honesty with twists of wry humor. She manages to be a beacon of reality and a beacon of hope at the same time. I relate deeply to some of her struggles she’s so generously willing to share here, and benefit from reading her posts—serious, silly, flippant, or otherwise. For some reason i have fleeting, vague memories of her from Before Times, and i don’t know why.
@Joker : compassion, good will, serving humanity—so much depth, so many (yes, lower case) dimensions of which, thanks to his modesty, we only know hints, beneath a generous, tasty layer of humor that brings many of us laughs, often when we really need them. One of several here i bring into my mind when i’m struggling and/or need to step up my game being a better person. Being amongst the nerd crew here is another bonus.
Nearly overwhelmed with feelings of deep gratitude,
