    I hardly ever comment on your blog posts because I think there is something incestuous about publicly commenting on your posts … after fifty-odd years together we have spiritually conjoined. However In this case you have used a note that I sent and so thought a written comment would be OK.
    I thoroughly enjoy your posts and I am always excited to read those amazing ideas and that beautiful prose that you give birth to after emerging from a week or two engrossed in your writing. You have a fascinating mind, are brutally honest and are a fun person to be with. I do however want to let you know that I like to share those articles/facts/opinions with you because you are interested and attentive and you always have an opinion of your own or a view that opens new understanding for me. So there is that selfish motivation that I also have in my sharing. I love to do things with you and for you not because I feel obliged to help, but because you are wonderful company.

      My dearest Love, Thanks so much for your thoughtful and appreciative comment on my post. You know that without you there would be no post, no household, no daily company, no laughter, and no fun for me. I am so grateful for your daily contributions to making my life better, for all the things you do to enable me to still have a life with lots of joy. Infinite love, you’re Gerda

    Dear Gerda I am glad to read of your determination to “blow past the detritus” . I think that sums up my life philosophy quite well actually, because what are the options? To sink into the sewage or try and get it below myself so I can be present for other, better, feelings. I hope you are able to absorb what your Peter told you in his comment on this post!!!
    Big Hugs, xoxo

      Shen, so much of what i know about blowing past the detritus I learned from you. I so much value your ongoing reading of the only writing I ca still do. no matter the editing and structural and other issues that stare me in the face after publishing a post. Your presence in my life is an anchor, a beacon. And sitting face-to-face with you across a cafe table (or any other way) is one of the super-highlights of my life. Love, love, love you.
