Bio and Links
Bio Photo We begin the month of February with the cold of winter all around us. The cold is temporary, later this month we might see a crocus start to bloom. On some mild days there is a fragrance of Spring even in the lingering chill of winter. Within ourselves, let's call upon the memories of those we love to inspire us to face the days ahead. Where love lives no one ever dies. As we remember our beloved let us perpetuate their goodness and example through acts of kindness and charity.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved one. May the love you give come back to you many times over.

True love is a durable fire,
In the mind ever burning,
Never sick, never dead, never cold,
From itself never turning.

--Written by an anonymous poet, 16th century.

Hi and Hugs
Dear EmilyAnn,
I am finally getting caught up on my messages - I do remember you answering me awhile back right after the San Bernardino attack, but I don't think I answered you - I had strep throat, then Gannon got mild pneumonia, then he had a surgery and so we have just been in the hospital or sleeping, it seems, for a month. I remember you telling me about your experiences re 9/11 - Emily, I completely believe your 'feeling' to quit your job when you did. Dad was very into that type of intuition - he said that it was the Indian in him -, and Mom also had dreams, hunches, etc. Well, we grew up around knowing that we weren't crackers if we had a hunch, whatever, and one of my personal stories is something I have written about here and there, and every word of it is true: I love planes and flying, always have, and cried like the wind when my neurologist said neither Gannon nor I could ever fly again...I dream about flying, and miss it so badly. fear of flight at all...anyhow, in 1979, I was supposed to fly out a specific day to a friend's, and I was as far as the terminal, standing in line for departure. Something literally was pushing on my shoulders - and no, I don't care who reads this on your page and laughs -, I could actually feel a pressure on my neck and shoulders. I stepped out of line to get a drink of water - this was long before common bottles of water being in tow -, and stood there, wondering. God knows had I known what would happen, of course I would have told everybody else to haul backside with me, but I didn't know what was wrong. I began to walk back toward passenger line up, and again felt, for lack of a better word, STOP. Even now, when I am typing this, I recall that feeling, E - I backed up, turned around and walked away. Yes, all this time later I think about what happened and could I have stopped it - I don't know. But I walked and walked the terminal, not looking back, not sure what I was feeling - I got to a row of seats and remember sinking into a chair. I felt as though I was almost asleep but flight took off, got overhead, banked into a spin and crashed - one of the first "caught on camera" events (anybody around my age or older will know exactly what event I am talking about), a couple taking photos caught it on film. Now...just like your 9/11 story: What if you had not quit your job, what if I had gotten on the plane? We don't know, because it wasn't meant to have those endings. I have been greatly affected by my event my entire life; I have never ignored dreams, hunches, etc. again. And I have had plenty, and they have given me guidance...I think, in my own opinion (which of course, with it and five dollars, you can get a cup of coffee - ha!), anyhow, I think that God, our angels, whatever is your belief, will let you know that you've got back up however possible, and yes, sometimes it's a 'feeling', a "Hey, listen up..."> But that's just my opinion. At any rate, how lucky we are that you listened to your hint, and what wonderful things you still have to accomplish before you. =) Gannon and I are always thinking of you and yours, and hope that you have a peaceful holiday weekend - will try to catch up on my visiting asap, I promise. Take Care - hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

RE: Happy Thanksgiving!
Dear E,
Gannon and I hope that you're feeling better soon...we certainly know the issues of health matters acting up. =( I am not online much right now - what else is new? -, and so I am sending you holiday hugs and love now; I certainly hope that 2016 is a blessed year for all of us. We're lucky enough to be able to stay home and write (me) and watch telly all day (Gannon) for the next few weeks except for a couple of dr. check ups, and I have got to tell you, we are sure grateful for it. Very, very long year...but I think so many folks have had that kind of year. And the stress of the political situation...the latest event, the San Bernardino attack, happened not that far away from us, and boy, it really shook us up, Emily - I don't get frightened easily, but I am really beginning to wonder what in the world is going on in society, and where we are headed. Anyhow! Take good, good care and know that we are thinking of you; come on, 2016! Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

Happy Thanksgiving!
Dear EmilyAnn,
Hi - Just want to wish you a happy holiday, hope that all is well with you. I do want to mention - I have had to write so many of these, I can't recall whether I updated you - that I am unfortunately having problems with harassment on the site (formal complaint filed, other steps taken), and I do want to know whether you have any fall out from it, and visiting my have been so kind, and I truly hope that none of this comes your way. Sigh....anyhow, a couple of my regulars had to pull their mail due to the problem, and we want to make sure that you also know that hopefully the public boards will be up again soon - I think that this is a shame, but we had this problem last year, and it was taken care of professionally by the administration, and I have complete faith in them, again. Lots of hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue
