From me
Well, it's been a few years since I joined this site. I know I'm a weird one, but thanks for tolerating me. I'm feeling slightly emotional, for no particular reason. So I thought I'd write a little letter to you all saying how I feel. You know, my favorite poem was something I found in a chain letter when I was in middle school. It's about missing the opportunity to connect/communicate with others. It's called Around The Corner. That poem taught me to try to not hold my tongue when I have something I want to tell somebody (even if it seems cheesy).

So in case I die or any such tragedy befalls me, I want to tell you all that I appreciate you.

In my family I was always too young to really count on being heard. I grew up listening to family arguments and drama. Not really contributing or participating in either conversations or events. As I've grown older I've learned to use my voice, but I still remain fairly "unattached". The thing is, I find that I enjoy just being a listener. To observe people that I care about talk, discuss, joke around, argue, get pissed, get emotional. It reminds me of how I felt in my family growing up. I find myself in that role a-lot here. I know I poke in and speak my mind every now and then, maybe even too often, but I often enjoy reading/observing conversation more than I enjoy engaging in them.

I know I disappear for months at a time, but honestly that's how I am in real life too. I will go months or even a year without seeing people. But that doesn't mean I don't think about or care about them. It's just...life is happening you know.

So, thank you everybody for being a great group. Even though I'm unconventional, I do consider you guys friends, or even a strange form of family. I feel at ease just watching you all talk with each other. Really just seeing you all talk to each other makes me happy. I'm the type who likes to just be in the same room as the people I care about. Even if I'm quietly doing my own thing. And coming to TTA feels like entering that room for me.

I wish you all well, and hope your professional and home lives are everything you hope for. I wish you all happiness. And even if you don't hear from me for months at a time, that doesn't mean I'm not thinking of you.

Darn, I feel like I had something else to say, but it just isn't coming to mind at the moment. So this will have to do.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Aww hugs Adrian


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: From me
Yeah, you are kinda like that weird cousin that we see now and then at family gatherings. We are used to you after this long and anyway...you belong here.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

Adrian we don't always agree (but then who does) but you are a pretty cool guy and I am glad to know you.
