Dear Share, I think your questions to Judy about why I wrote that analysis of Barry, and those two responses to Curtis, were valid questions. I just don't get Judy's answer to you. The thing is, when I saw that you were perplexed as to why I would post something like this (Barry & Curtis), I realized: Goddam it! *I* don't even know myself why I did this! So, contrary to what Judy's post seemed to indicate (you will have to ask her about *her* post; it needed way more explanation even than mine re: BW and then CM did) I believe you opened me up to some self-examination--as to my actual motives. And having searched my heart, Share, I will have to admit: There was no bloody good reason for those posts whatsoever. I only wish I could have felt the impact of your remarkable objectivity before I posted them; because if I had, I would not now experience the wish that I had not posted. Just make sure you realize one thing, Share: There is at least one other person--besides Steve--who perfectly understands you. Indeed I think I have gone even beyond Steve in this instance. Thank you, Share. In a sense you undid me in just the right way. You are much superior to any Zen Roshi I have studied under. In a way that is perhaps only meaningful to you and to me, what you initially posted to Judy amounts to a Share Koan--and the Satori it produced in me, therefore, will have to remain a secret between you and me. I realize most everyone at FFL will not comprehend this, Share; but the real point here is: I loved that post of yours to Judy. And I was disappointed at her defensiveness and negativity--Ann does the same thing, I believe. I think in some way they would both deny (raunchy and Emily have some issues here too; as I think you know) you threaten them. But you probably understand women better than I do. For once, Barry got it right when he responded in sympathy to you today. I certainly wish I could revise that analysis now. Know this, Share: You did a good deed for me. Martyrdom, as you know, can sometimes be secretly triumphant. I believe that is the case in your contretemps with authfriend--and AWB. And let the unbelievers think I am being ironic here. You will know the difference. At least I pray you will. Robin > turq, I was wondering if you and your household did the whole Easter egg > thing for Maya.Â Is that a tradition in Holland?
