***** Classmate replies to yesterday's Dialog with others
"There was a time, Loving, when many of us lived out of the matrix. When joy meant more than pleasure. You know that as well as I do. Many of us need to get back to that because somewhere, somehow it got lost in responsibilities of a more "personal"nature, and, it isn't easy to walk away from all that when "all that" has been the focus for so many years, and pleasure...or an "adventurous weekend" is an escape. I am sure some of our classmates think you an absolute nut. But there are others who think you profound because you have made us think! And, I include myself in the latter group because you have really made me think today. Isn't that what this is all about? And, my friend, isn't that how it starts? Slowly, perhaps, but it starts."
Your kind words bring a welling of emotion in me. Yes, if it is going to start, it starts as you say. I'll also say, you've grasped my message, my understanding, faster than anyone ever does. (((HUGS)))
