I send you greetings so that you may be moved to joy and know through them how much our heart is full. And these greetings travel among clouds; the sun and the moon bring them to you. When I lie down, you are in my mind. And when I sleep, I always dream of you. Be well during the day, and may you pass through sweet nights, and have your friend always in mind, and do not consign him to oblivion, because I do not act so towards you. You think one thought, and I another, by which means we fulfil longing. May He who reigns in heaven and provides all things give you to me before I die."

    How great is that???

    Though perhaps more suited to an enneagram 4 thread than this one. Especially that last line ... the eternal plaint of the 4, hahaha.

    7 sx though... I'm still choked-up. And my heart hurts a little. And my stomach is slightly queasy.

    Normally, I would be prepared to examine something paragraph minimum and heartfelt from you. But from the words you've given there, I know you went on a restroom break.

    Restroom break? Please.

    I was just running aimlessly in a fit through the Moors in my pajamas which is actually like a really pretty long gown - thank you.

    “TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
    What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
    And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

    I keep forgetting to put this here. It is quite possible the most EFP e7 story ever told.

    Now, therefore, lead on where you would have us go, and we will follow with right goodwill; you shall not find us fail you in so far as our strength holds out, but no man can do more than in him lies, no matter how willing he may be.
