In a world of I hate this or I hate that. Or screaming at the clouds with a shaked fist over political person x or y. Or shouting out damn you opposite gender of me ...
Your writing has always been a breath of fresh air, and if I personalize it ... writing for me has helped me evolve into a stronger man, with the ability to share my inner intimacies and thoughts in a productive consent binding way.
So using a song from the late 80's early 90's "life is too $hort" by too $hort ... it is when quality human beings are around.
You are one such person, so never forget that, especially coming from the heartlands of America.
