What an interesting couple of days! Abbe I am so glad you're not off, I really appreciate your input here and your writing is often beautiful, I hope you dont mind me pulling a recent example up as I feel its rather appropriate...
"There is a secret out there to be found, not in the noise and money making, all that stuff are only illusions, there is a reality which is sharper than a knife. That is what I am looking for and part of me fears that road ahead, but I need to walk the walk.
Here I am walking and its fun to meet now and than a soul with the same spirit, walking for a short while with me and then going his way when the time has come for it. Then I dont want to miss him, dont want to hold him but give freedom to him and to me. Walking my path."
Lets keep the politics out - we all get more than enough out there in daily life!!
"I think we should apoligise for our error in thinking that the members could see the notes left by the moderators, that certainly explains a great deal."
Well said Stuart, and thanks to you, Martyn, Toddy, Chris and Tony for your comments here.
Abbe - I'm glad you're staying. I know we don't always see eye to eye, but I've always admired your ability to state your point of view in a clear way that always manages to get to the heart of the matter in hand.
