friendshipHi guys!  Sorry I’ve been off for the past day working hard on poetry…….some things in the pipeline.  I wanted to touch on friendship again on my post today because it seems to be SO prevalent in my life, that I cannot deny or disregard the effect it is having on my life.  As many of you know I’ve been dealing with a disease that, for the most part has me housebound for lack of basic mobility skills.  Well, friendship and love have come into the equation where my health is concerned.  But I am getting a little ahead of myself.  First I would like to pay special greetings and salutations to my dear friend Georgina Richardson who has single handedly saved my stats on this blog for the past 48 hours.  She has been the biggest supporter of this blog and over the past day or so, during my absence, took it upon herself to go back and make comments on a ton of my past posts going all the way back some 53 posts ago.  Her comments are invaluable to this blog.  She has been laying her life open for all to see.  If I could direct your attention to one of her recent comments on the “ANGELS” post. At the top of this page there is a search box, just type in ANGELS and it will take you to the post I’m talking about.  Go into the comments section of that post and you will find one of the most AMAZING true stories you’ll ever read.  In fact, if you click on the comments section of any of my posts, you will probably find Georgina there.  Her and several other friends are responsible for the survival and success of this blog.  I challenge your curiosity to go into the comments section and read for yourself, what friendship REALLY is.  The comments here are worthy of praise because they are bubbling over with kindness and the joy of being friends.  They are a joy to me, and even though it sometimes takes a day or so for me to respond to some of them, eventually I do.  And I can’t tell you how many times I have spent hours just reading the comment section here……..everyone is so smart and well read and flat out NICE to each other.   It’s an honor to be a part of it.   The friendships I have been making of late have also been improving my over all health.  It’s like osmosis or something, the longer you are around kindness and generosity of spirit, the more it rubs off on you and for me it has been healing.  I’m going to entire post in the next day or so about this subject, but for now just KNOW that these friends of mine have me actually going outside for exercise.  A friggin’ MIRACLE in and of itself.  I have witnessed some extraordinary things in my life, but what’s going on here in the comment section of this blog is EXTRAORDINARY………take a look for yourself…….I dare you.  Thank you Georgina for holding things together around here for me…… I said a few posts back….You’re an ANGEL Georgie……….and to All of my other friends who come here and share stories and experiences, just because I haven’t mentioned you here today……doesn’t mean that I’m not currently buying a Downtown L.A. billboard to recognize just how much of a Joy you ALL are………..Love to you, and my heartfelt thanks………glide on dreamers, there’s a place for you wherever your heart leads you!………..Friends, the stuff of LIFE……….I am Dartanion2……and that’s the way I see it…………..cheers………….t  xx
