Second Thoughts

I have taken the previous post down. It was just too personal for comfort.

That being said I have no regrets about putting the post on the blog. It clarified things. But more than that, the quality of the comments it engendered even in the few hours that it was up was incredibly high. They were warm, wise and passionate. Comments such as these are why I continue to blog. I have saved them all, together with the post itself, and I may rework the latter. We'll see.

A heartfelt thank you to the commenters. I will read and re-read your words.

M. Sorry I missed it. Although understand your reasons for removing it.
I had written something for my latest post and decided against it. Too much personal stuff. I think there are limits ( or is that my English reserve talking!). I now write the more intimate stuff in my Journal.

You sure pulled a lot out of me with such sensitive, vulnerable, honest writing... by opening up, you enabled a space that felt sacred, and where those of us who commented could talk. I apologize for leaving such a long comment. You are so precious I want to wrap you in rose petals until the delicate perfume, the softness, refreshes, empowers, allows your dreams to dance.

Mary, I read your post yesterday and started a comment, then interrupted myself to follow your links to Jean's and Tamar's posts on the topic. All of it was of such great value to me, and when I got back to the comment box, I felt like what I'd written up to that point was inadequate and needed more work. Obviously this is a topic that's very charged for a lot of us. It was an awesome post and I'm glad I didn't miss it, and I thank you for it and for the links to the others as well.

Damn. I wish you didn't feel you had to do that.
Not, understand, I wish you didn't pull what you don't feel comfortable with...
just that I wish you didn't feel uncomfortable...
because honest feelings are always worth reading...Your posts, of any kind, are always worth reading.

Brenda: what a lovely comment. Thank you for this and for your earlier contributions. They were and are warm and generous and very much appreciated.

Jess: I have very ambivalent feelings about the post but as it stood I needed to take it down. Possibly I might rework it. I am so glad you found the links helpful and thanks so much for this comment.

LJ: Yes I know. And part of me really didn't like doing it. But my inner voice I think is probably correct in this instance.

And it's always so good to see you here. Thank you.
