I beg to differ, my friend.

“There is no truer and more abiding happiness than the knowledge that one is free to go on doing, day by day, the best work one can do, in the kind one likes best, and that this work is absorbed by a steady market and thus supports one’s own life. ” - R.G. Collingwood


To all of you on this forum and those that make it what it is,

I would like to take this moment, after all that have been before it and before all that will be after it, to say thank you.

Thank you.

Thank for your work.

Thank you for your vulnerability.

Thank you for sharing your humanity and your fair and honest challenge to give the same.

Thank you for living a life that is courageous enough to challenge what you believe, for valuing the gaining of new knowledge as an effect of questioning and not the cause of it.

Thank you for your help.

Lovingly,

Charlie

Tonite I held close the questioning of close friends, knowing that their intent was only to understand that which is so foreign to them.

Respect, trust, honesty, integrity, and vulnerability filled the menu, a pleasant accompaniment to the evening's apertifs.

We talked of cancer, death, family, the grief of the living, mistakes of love, and then, quite organically, of polyamory.

There was no judgment, only a line of questioning bent on understanding.

There was no defense, only shrugged shoulder conviction.

No one has to believe what I believe. That is the beauty of a truthful life.

To Catfish and Rarechild: I speak to the World your love for each other easily when asked, proudly when questioned. I leave no doubt in the minds of others that you care for me.

You are glorious.

I love you for all that you are and also for the life you choose.
Your strength and love will never be questioned long by those in my company.

My days have been filled with more joy and love than I would have ever dared ask for.

Default Dao De Jing

Chapter 45: Quiet

Great perfection seems incomplete,
But does not decay;
Great abundance seems empty,
But does not fail.

Great truth seems contradictory;
Great cleverness seems stupid;
Great eloquence seems awkward.

As spring overcomes the cold,
And autumn overcomes the heat,
So calm and quiet overcome the world.

Rarechild, Catfish, and I have all been overwhelmed, busy, frustrated...

It seems for now that we are all pursuing our lives together independently, and frankly it can be lonesome from time to time.

Our lives are changing, as they always do.

In the past few months, more things have happened than I care to recount just now, but I needed to say something here, as the chilly winds blow through my caretaker's quarters and Autumn is in its prime.

As the leaves rust once more and another year turns over, one thing remains the same:

My heart is full of Love, and it shall stay that way evermore.
