To all of You ATS Members,Readers,and Staff,
I have experienced several life changing events over the past year.
The kind of events that professional counselors advise you to not
make any pertinent decisions for one year ahead or so.
Over this past year, my head has been in a spin.
Needless to say, many of my replies to threads may have
been inappropriate. Not to mention of a lesser caliper
than I am capable of. What makes this site exceptional,
is members participating with class, and at the top of
their game.At times, I have failed at this recently.
To you and the staff, I ask your forgiveness.
I ask it at this time before tomorrows Winter Solstice
at 12:11 p.m. EST U.S.
I would like to wish ALL of you a Very Merry Christmas,Happy Kwaanza,
Happy Hanukkah, Happy Boxing Day, Happy Buddhism, Happy Black Mass,
Happy Atheism,Happy Great Spirit Wholeness,just to name a few.
Forgive me, if your spiritual method is not included
in this short list,for as even so, you are in my thoughts,prayers, and meditations
at this time.
Worldwide, there are times of celebration, sharing and acts of kindness.
This ritual happens to be mine... now.
On a humorous note, I was thinking that if I were an Atheist, I would fill the living room
with trees,set up a Sterno and camp out. If I were a Black Magician, I would hang the tree
upside down from the ceiling,and if I were the Old Man and the Sea, I would bring you
The Big Fish.
Year End Blessings to you all, Wildmanimal
