Ha. Yes, you don't realize what you might achieve internally and externally by posting out - and, you'll never know until you try. It's an experiential thing - gotta do it to *know*. And, you could *get* everything here that you identify you are *receiving* as you could still view the posts. Come on, Share, give it a try. Just one week....and you could come back and report on the experience of not posting - how you had to confront your self-will, the obsessive quality to your nature, or whatever comes up for you after 14 months of posting every day, or almost every day. FFL will last a week being deprived of your posts, important as they are to the mix.

Whew! I haven't realized what I've been deprived of by not posting out. And depriving others as well! Of course for Judy this time, it was simply that she miscalculated her post amount. Go figure! BTW, I've only been on FFL 14 months, not year after year! As for blessing, FFL posters bless me way more than I could ever repay. They make me laugh and keep me informed about current events. They tell me about cool high tech stuff and share beautiful music. They post great photos from all over the world and give me great info about ayurveda and jyotish. They alert me to TV and movies and books and food I might enjoy. They got me interested again in politics. They write wonderfully. They make me think. They push my buttons. They make me laugh. As some here say, deep bow (-: ________________________________ From: Emily Reyn <emilymae.r...@yahoo.com> To: "FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com" <FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com> Sent: Thursday, August 1, 2013 9:53 PM Subject: Re: [FairfieldLife] Re: Just sayin'...the Overposters Edition :-) Awww...Barry....thanks for doing this...I mean...how *meaningful* is this?! I'm not sure what posting on FFL has to do with "enlightenment," but feel free to describe it for me/us. I can tell you miss those who post out when they/we do, what with all the focus and attention you bring to this topic again and again and again. Control is overrated in my opinion - take Share who thinks in terms of 7 a day - how important is it that she make sure the forum is blessed with her presence, and that you make sure of the same, every day all year long, year after year. I say, old chap, show us some passion, throw caution to the wind every once in awhile, show us a little spontaneity, post out just once - for the freedom, Barry (and Share), the freedom. Don't be stodgy; get creative and run with it. I will miss you and your predictability terribly; I will miss Share's insights on just about everything. Come on, now, I dare you. Share, see how far you can get past 50 (maybe even to 70 if you're fast) before Alex shuts you down. Give FFL an opportunity to miss you. :) :) From: turquoiseb <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Thursday, August 1, 2013 12:23 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Just sayin'...the Overposters Edition :-) --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, turquoiseb <no_reply@...> wrote:
