A Thank You For Fellow Shroomerites
    #3969594 - 03/25/05 06:41 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I hate it when I'm stupid, but I love 'awakening' (not necessarily in the morning). I've noticed the rating mushrooms by our names, but I never thought to click on them - "D'oh!" [H.S.] - until now.

Anyway...I just wanted to thank everyone for their criticisms as well as their compliments. I really never had any idea - about the compliments that is - about the criticisms - I know my flaws. Mostly, words like pedantic, pedagogical, pretensious, or perfectionistic describe them in this context. Sometimes I just can't shut up, but that is because I really want to communicate AND be clear, and I try too hard because simplicity of insight doesn't translate well into just a few words.

So thanks for the criticisms because they will motivate me to work harder on writing more parsimoniously (Ha! didn't like THAT word didya?) And if I've managed to help or inspire some of you then my heart is truly gladdened.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
