A Thank You to You All

I want to thank all of you readers who have been so supportive of me throughout my divorce nightmare. You have no idea how much it has meant to me or how much it has helped. Between your comments, e-mails and phone calls it has made such a immeasurable difference. One fellow blogger once asked in an e-mail to me whether I thought this blogosphere of friendships is "real." I can attest that it is - most assuredly so. I called her in fact just to say, yes I do really exist. :)

I also want to thank my neighbor, Erica, publicly for the tickets to Cirque Dreams last night. I definitely needed a distraction last night, to say the least. Little did I know we'd have box seats as if we were someone important. As for the show, it was great - definitely some very, very talented eye candy.

I also want to thank my friends Martin and Christopher (I posted about their wedding in Canada back in early July) who have been like family to me throughout the ordeal. They have truly shown me that we can create our own families and relationships that are of value beyond measure. I am going to their place shortly (no doubt for some much needed alcohol) and then we are going to Mixers which is finally opening after numerous delays and set backs in the rehab of its old warehouse into a multi-venue club - the City of Norfolk says it wants rehab and revitalization, but then does everything imaginable to impede it. Mixers is conveniently located two blocks from my house.
Again, many thanks to each and everyone of you among my blogosphere family and friends.

Michael, on behalf of everyone, I just want to say, You Are Welcome !!

I know if any of us need support in the future regarding things going on in our life and we are keeping in touch, you will be among the first to give us the encouragement to get through very tough times.

Yes, I'm amazed as you know, the friends you can make through the Blogosphere.

In my case, the dear longtime friend I lost in 2006 can never be replaced, but it has been good and fun at times to make new friends through this silly thing called a computer.

I know he has been smiling down and saying "whad I tell ya, you can make friends on the Internet".

And Bill was so right.

It sound like, all in all, there have been some really bright spots in this bleak week.
Mixers sounds like a fun place. Wish I could tag along with you guys!
