To my dear friends who live in my computer,

Wow.  You know you rock, right?  Yes you, the person reading this.  You!  Do you have any idea how lovely you are?

I disappear for a year.  Come back and whinge like the Dickons.  Roll around like some raging emo kid.  And you don’t ignore me.  You don’t roll your eyes and shake your head.

No.  You make me feel loved.  I have been completely astounded by the depth of kindness and compassion you’ve offered me.  And I wanted you to know that I am deeply, deeply touched.  And not just in the way of the cuckoo.

Hope, compassion, love, strength, support, kindness, empathy…and always, a little silliness.  I hope you too have people who share these with you in abundance.

So, from the squishy bit in my left ventricle, thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

La (almost back to being) Dolce Vita

    Oh you made me blush now didn’t you… and in my case i think one Steven Patrick Morrissey sums it up best… in my best Mozza voice… you know i’m unloveable, you don’t have to tell me, i don’t have much in my life, but take it it’s yours…

    down there a place is that no torments try
    but only darkness, where the lament
    hath not the sound of wail, but is a sigh…

  6. The internet is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? I had much the same experience a while ago, I didn’t post because I was so in the depths of despair and when I finally admitted what was going on got SO much love and support from people I had never met except on my computer screen.

    I am honored and happy to have been a small part of the support system you needed, even if a bit of a Johnny come lately.

    Glad you are coming back. The closer you get to the top of the ramp, the faster it goes… It is the first steps out of the black bottom that are the hardest, and we often take them alone. Then we find out that there are helping hands reaching down towards us, we just couldn’t see them because of the shadows…

    Your friends say the most awesome things. Don’t ever get rid of Daisy, she’s how I found you.
    sometimes on the slippery slope you need helping hands to pull and push you up it.. I don’t blog but love reading several blogs that I have found that I truly relate to. Yours is one of them.
    I always have a hand and heart out for you, even in the unknown of who we are and my infrequent responses.
    Now, I’m off to stalk Daisy for a bit..(waves to Daisy..I visit every day you know, just a silent stalker that’s all)

    See, you all rock. Lots. And I’m a very grateful bunny.

    On the upside, I’m currently in Thailand. Admittedly, with a cold. But a cold in Thailand, is better than a cold at home.

    More to come.

  9. I tried to leave a comment here before but my phone disappeared it.
    Don’t underestimate the power of speaking your truth. I have no doubt that your out pourings of sorrow helped some people, gave them reassurance that someone else understands how they feel.

    I’ve also come to realise that communications on the net can be as meaningful or as superficial as anyone cares to make them. You are clearly not the superficial type. Hence you have friends there.
    Just one thing though, I don’t live in your computer, I live in a room in a boarding house. Do you think I could move into your computer? I think there might be a bit more space there. 🙂

    Hmmmm. It would seem I have to go edit my blog list (on my somewhat idle and ignored blog) and remove the “RETIRED?” label from “La Dolce Vita”.

    You know, it’s kind of odd, but I’m probably a little bit better at maintaining “virtual” friendships than ones in meatspace. It’s also funny, but it’s a bit, um, deflating when virtual friends fade away leaving one wondering.

    Glad to see you back miss Dolce!

    @ Syncy – move on in. Just hope you can ignore all the porn 🙂

    @ Rob – Meatspace. I’m stealing that. Brilliant. And glad to be back Rob.
