Love you, too, sweetie!

You are on my short list of heroes I know personally. Your success story is tremendously inspiring, and I love your commitment to leading a compassionate and disciplined life style. Also, I would give anything to get to spend an afternoon cooking with you and learning from you! Let's do that eventually, OK?

EAC-R… the voice of reason! Please understand that when I say this, I mean the kind of reason that brings you down from a near panic attack to being able to calmly assess things. I can't count the times you've brought me out of a tail-spin with your personal brand of soothing truth-telling.

It's also been noted by many that you are really talented at this Mom gig. I love and appreciate the videos I get to see of Kat. Since I don't have my own cute daughter to share with you, please enjoy these videos of my fabulous goddaughters if you haven't already. *smooch*

I wonder if you realize how mindful you are of the people around you? Sometimes it's a forest-for-the-trees situation, so let me tell you. You are always jumping in with a diplomatic remark when tensions start to rise, always giving little gifts, an soothing hurt feelings. Your generosity of spirit is evidenced in your actions and words all the time.

Also, here is a thought you might find pleasing (E and I are saving this for our next book club meeting, but I will give you a preview!) In re-reading Dracula, we started thinking about casting a movie version that, unlike most of the modern revisionings, would portray the titular monster as true to the book as possible, instead of romanticizing him. Eric's choice for casting? Milan Fras!

Some happy memories:
Walking across the board walk over a swamp, geocaching and singing "we like tha moooooon!"
Being the only one of three bachelorette parties the drag queens liked.
Walking back up the hill as a group after successfully helping one of our EGs to find some closure she needed.
Holding space together when Rowan came into the world.

Love you, too, my dear one. And miss you, too.

Hi (*waves*)! I am in favor of More Joy. If there were a More Joy party, I would go to it. If there were a More Joy nutrition plan, I would try to follow it (though I suspect I already am with my requisite chunk of dark chocolate every day).

Hey, my dear. Lovely to hear from you! Work just blew up in my face, but let me just say that I very much admire your blog (whew, it that over my head most of the time) and more importantly, you obvious devotion to parenting. I just can't put my admiration for attentive parents into words! Go you!

Perhaps more soon, if I can find a minute. *hug*

Aww, sweetie. I'm so sorry. Listen, I will respond more later (to this and others) but for a quick happy fix, please see this. Love you!

So glad you liked the picture. I squealed like a four-year-old when I saw it!

I am totally swamped for the next hour, but I'll be in world this evening to meet with Mr. Arkham. Can I assume you will be there, too? I will do something joyful for you then! *smoochies*

We've had this discussion before!

But I still think you're wonderful. *smooch*

Where do I begin? Objects you have made for me are among the most precious I have. Memories we have made together are some of the dearest I cherish. I don't think you know how dazzling your personal power is. You have the greatest appreciation for beauty of anyone I've ever known. You are an absolute force of nature, my darling Earthy girl. And I've missed you so much lately, it aches.

Can has anam cara? :)

I think you are awesome. I have a total friend-crush on you. (Those are harmless and platonic, no worries. :))

Oh! *blushes furiously* That's just the nicest thing I've heard all day. Thank you!

I haven't had much of a chance to get to know you yet, but I felt an immediate connection with you when we met. Maybe we could get together sometime soonish? I'd really like that!

Hi, you! Listen, I regret not replying here last week, but Thursday evening began a shit-storm of general fuckery in my life. It has since settled down a little, but I'm still a touch frazzled.

But here... have a nifty spooky story. For some reason, it made me think of you as I was reading it.

I think you rock, and are an amazing, strong woman. I feel privileged to know you. And I hope you'll come join us in world for our SL tribute to Poe on Thursday evening! *mwah!*

You are my fire and my heart and soul would be very cold and lonely without you.

And my witness...my children's guide...and my family.

Joy. Thank you.
