One last thank you to everyone. It means a lot to me that people took the time to read all this and respond. A common response talks about kids being resilient. I agree. (Of course my “kids” are all adults, so maybe that doesn’t apply.) This weekend was one of great reflection and I had the opportun...

Time to say goodbye

One of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard. I hoped it would never apply, but it does. Bear with me one last time. Or not – feel free to leave this message now because it’s going to get detailed. I feel I owe it to the people who have read through my trial and traumas. In business, we often talk of an...

Good advice

Mary Schmich is a columnist in the Chicago Tribune that I enjoy reading. Her column today struck a chord with me and I thought I'd share it: Summer puts big question right out there Published June 15, 2007 The days are long now. The early birds wake you up at some insane hour, yakking away like drun...

So many songs have unusual twists on conventional love song patterns. Examples: Hello, I Love You. Pretty typical love song stuff on the surface, but subtle differences: "When she moves my brain screams out this song" where most people woudl expect "my heart sings out this song" (and then the "song"...

I MUCH prefer When The Music's Over; both the lyrics and the music (Manzarek's keyboards especially.) I always loved the no holding back "what have they done to the earth". Remember - this was the 60s! When the music's over When the music's over, yeah When the music's over Turn out the lights Turn o...

I was Googling and found this take on Morrison's The End: When asked what The End meant, Jim replied, “It started out as a simple goodbye song, it's sufficiently complex and universal in its imagery that it could be almost anything you want it to be.” So you could ask five different people what any ...

We're having a tough time here in effect deciding what we want this board to be.

The context that I was called a softie implied caring and compassion and empathy - but the taking a stand part is/was nowhere in the equation. I was told it's "nice" that my daughter had a softie father to come to for support and advice Obviously there are far worse things to be known for than being...

Thank you. I didn't start this looking for support; it really was just an observation and coming to understand and accept (or not) reality versus wishful thinking.

I'm pretty sure this is an un-love song. At least, it's the most depressing song I've ever heard.

Thanks ITh for your response and for sharing those aspects of your life that I'm sure are difficult to talk about. I am a firm believer in the benefits of counseling and I'm sure it was vital in your getting through that tough part in your life. More than that, the long and solid relationship you've...

I want to post something that may turn out to be controversial to some extent. I really want a variety of opinions from different people of different backgrounds. I suspect I will get them – and I hope this doesn’t lead to anything other than a discussion that will help me put some things in perspec...

I certainly can tell you are frustrated - but unfortunately you seemed to have painted with a very broad brush.

The image didn't show up so I'm not sure what picture of her you're referrign to. I never saw her outside of her X-Men role. I have to (reluctantly) admit that most of my attraction (if it really is an attraction) to actresses come from the roles I think of them in and not who they really are. So it...

A local pop culture writer in the Tribune commented on this by saying "who knew train wrecks were hot?" (referring to Lindsay Lohan). I was asked lately who my top five movie stars were in pure attraction (I took it to mean overall - physical beauty and some sort of "something".) It was tough becuas...

Glad to see you back! Your pottery pictures were likely removed by Bob-San as part of your hiatus from the board. I would imagine he removed other personal posts and pictures as well.

Well, it's certainly not a "guy" flick either. Maybe it's a "sensitive guy" flick. Somewhere on here I wrote a post a long while back where I guessed that a woman married for some number of years woudl be less likely to like this movie - and even less so if she had children.

I'm trying to hold back jumping in here (and obviously failed). Just some thoughts - friendship is more important than romance. Ideally, people can find both in the same person. Bob woudl not have found a satisfying romance in Charlotte due to many factors (in my opinion). And also in my opinion, a ...
