wow .. the past few days have ben rather interesting . it seems the universe is getting down right chatty with me lately . a few random sources have ben imparting universal truths in my path and, at unexpected times. i find im smiling a lot more recently. not the fake mechanical thing i flash repetedly, but true joy . its like opening windows in a stuffy house to let in a fresh summer breeze... as we come closer to TTITD, i find im surrounded by people just as dammaged as me and live there lives in pain and frustration.... i feel a need to help when i see it in others, so i can only imagine what those around me would feel if they truly knew what i am going through, how much they would want to help. so,, as we crawl through the last remaining days till BM and the universe floods me with insights to my rougher edges..... i have discovered to my chagrin how many people would really miss me being around . regardless of the circumstances.that knowledge made me cry (good tears). i have ben so buisy with last min projects (which friends of mine lit the creative fire for) and the happy little diddy " going to burningman, going to burningman , that i have actually had to set my past aside (whats ahead is far more pleasant than whats behind me)... you have all helped me get to this point :D , and i must admit that i feel the universe is urging me to go to the M&G, to set asside my fears and anxiety, take a chance and have some faith, to take that metaphysical leap into the unknown.... i think il be ok. .. so my question to yall .


when where what time .

FrostyFrostyFrostyFire, the eplaya Meet & Greet is Thursday from 6-8, Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro. 3:30 and Engagement Street. If you have to be somewhere else at that time, then, come by early and help us set up! Or come by late and help us drag away the limp bodies... :lol:

Big (((HUG))) Just show up sometime!

MDF, we're not going to go through the effort of dragging the bodies away. I say we just bury them and be done with it.

Well I don't see "bodies" in our LNT plan so... we will have to think of something. :?

Perhaps we could gift them to Terminal City.

And if we use enough BBQ sauce, the patchouli taste is hardly noticeable...

It should. Somebody said that far more people threaten suicide than actually go through with it. Globally true, perhaps, but we're not looking at somebody we know nothing about, some random person grabbed out of the general population. We're looking at somebody who seems manic depressive, and that would have to change the odds in a bad way.

She needs to see a professional. Just being there for her won't be enough, any more than just being there for somebody with malaria would be enough. This is a medical condition. Has she seen somebody? Would she be willing to see somebody, if only to "humor" you?

I haven't heard from her in a long while. I text her and call her but she won't answer me back. I love my friend and I miss her a lot. There's nothing I can do. Hopefully she sought help and is working on getting well. That would be an answered prayer for me.

Uh, oh. Bad sign.

maryanimal wrote:I love my friend and I miss her a lot. There's nothing I can do.


Maybe there is. Have any common friends? A visit in person, if practical, might help, especially if you bring the friend with. Dismissing letters on a screen is a lot easier than dismissing somebody who's standing outside one's door.

I hope that happened, but turning away from the world is what I've seen people I've known do when they've really gone into a deep dive, right before the end. You might want to visit her soon, and talk to her while she's still able to listen.

But, on the other hand, given certain circumstances mentioned elsewhere and your attitudes about them, I suddenly find that I don't give a rat's ass about your problems, any more.

And, of course, I'm "adding you to my foes list", as the system now describes the action of putting somebody on ignore. I know as many narcissists as I care to.

such good advice when ignorance leaps up and bites you, sometimes people just forget basic humanity.

Well, I agree with Here and There's advice as of the 16th. I have no idea what the following stuff is all about. (Among other things, I am not approved for the linked forum.)

Anyway, good luck with your friend. Cutting oneself off from other is part of the downward spiral. Having someone check up in person seems like a good next move.

Sorry to follow this distraction, but I'm going to do it anyway.

no wonder we don't see much of here and there - he's made us all foes. I am shocked and honored to be on that list. I don't think I post enough for anyone to care and I try to keep my opinions fair and my language peaceful.

His post here where he decides MA is a foe is - peculiar. He posted a long rant, she disagreed with him, so now he can't talk to her anymore. That's just sad, and too typical of many in America's political debates today. "You don't agree with me so I won't listen to anything you say". That's just sad, and stupid.

You're right. I wonder what he did. It does sort of take the zest of plonking him.
