Thank you for your concern.
My brother is still in the process of recovery. He had major shoulder surgery back in May, and the nomadic period stalled his healing, sadly. He hurts
a lot, and is cranky because of it, and there is little I can do to ease his pain. We both must be patient. He is used to pain, though, and suffers it
with few complaints, as always. Settling down again will no doubt make things better, but it grieves me to be able to do so little. He is a proud and
stubborn man, determined to do as much as he can for himself, and helping him can be problematic at times, trying to find the line between helping too
much for his pride and helping too little for his need.
My thanks to you all for your warm welcomes home.
I've come to consider ATS my main intellectual home and one of my main spiritual ones. I truly missed being here during the time away. There is no
other place on the planet like it that I've found, and no other group of folks so stimulating and thoughtful.
Thirdeyeofhorus, I agree we've disagreed on things, but in the end we share more important similarities, as do we all of us on ATS: a love of
questing for the truth, wherever it leads us, even if it disturbs our comfortable ruts of thought and jars us into seeing different points of view. We
may not exactly accept
those different points of view, but at least we see them, acknowledge them, think about them, and in doing so we change
and adapt our own ways of thought, mostly for the better, I think. We may disagree at times, but you have my respect and thanks.
