I have always known I'm an odd duck. I wasn't wired up like anyone else I knew. My head worked different than anyone in my family, except maybe my dad. He was the benevolent dictator at times, other wise, inscrutable and ornery.
One thing that I crave is clarity. That usually comes through discussion with those I admire and trust. Trust and admiration only happens after time and observation. I sent out the first newsletter to those who asked, that I knew from our interactions. No newbies allowed, I guess.
I haven't gleaned much if any new info as a result of NL1, so I feel it was just a whine-fest. Not what I was interested in doing. I need intel.
Working up a second newsletter. I may not continue this after number 2. But I am amazed at what has been happening.
Here is the deal. If you want to catch up, fine by me. But I expect feedback. I'm not giving info for no purpose. I desire direction, encouragement, a stern talking to, something to learn or do or avoid. You folks are a wealth of lifetime wisdom. I have developed trust through our conversations, even if we haven't shanken hands or slapped backs. If it seems like Ned and First Reader stuff, send it anyway. I need it. Otherwise, we can wait for Friday at the The Irishman's Lair.
If this is a waste of time, then I'll drop it, and just try and keep up to date with the piddly goings on around here as this chapter ends and the next unfolds.
But if you are interested in meat, ask for NL2. And be prepared to advise. This isn't an unveiling, this is a request for intel in an area I am completely unfamiliar with.
