Not sure from whom I got the idea of allowing y’all to ask me stuff – maybe it was Jaquandor.
But I sure know WHY I do it. You might ask me something that – maybe – I always wanted to write about it. But perhaps I edit myself because I don’t know if anyone is interested in the topic. Or perhaps propriety gets in the way; I do HAVE some sense of propriety. REALLY. And YOUR requests will assist me in liberating this piece from the recesses of my brain, and my heart.
Last month, I discovered Scottish therapist Heather Bestel, who wrote: “Now my life really is quite wonderful, by design… But it’s not always been like this. There have been times in my life when I have been depressed, alone, confused and suicidal. I grew up with a shameful secret.” I found this in a comment to a blog post, Don’t Cross the “What Not to Blog” Line. I don’t THINK I do, but you can judge that for yourself.
Understand that ALL questions are welcome. I think Jaquandor noted that he’s surprised what he ISN’T asked, and I tend to agree. All questions WILL be answered eventually, within 30 days of the asking. That’s true even if I have to obfuscate a bit, which is always the challenge in balancing the profound from the profane. Hey, you don’t want to come here and find a black page, now do you?
