A Heartfelt Thank-you




There was an almost Helen Keller silence in the room. The only sound being heard was the beating of my own heart. Its pounding echoing in my ear, silent to everyone but deafening to me. I sat in front of the computer screen, fingers resting on the keyboard, as a lifetime of desires locked away in darkness, found their way out. A new journey, a new beginning, a new discovery of myself had been born, it was called a blog. Not knowing what to expect, not knowing where it would lead, not knowing if I was opening a door that could be or for that matter, a door I would ever want to shut again, I began typing. It has been a wonderful journey and a discovery of some wonderful friends. Friends that have extended their hands in a friendship I never imagined existed. Chances are we may never meet in person but always know each of you have made a difference in Stephen's life.

Dearest Stephen -- I am so very grateful that you chose to create a blog. The world you opened was not just a journey for you -- but for us, your readers and friends. I cannot speak for everyone -- nor would I attempt to...but I can tell you I am one person who is a better person because of you. You have made a tremendous difference in my life -- and I thank you for it -- my fondness for you grows every day. You are loved and appreciated more than you will ever know.

Although I'm in Texas, I've always felt that it's more Southern than anything else, so it's great to see a Southern man running his own blog. I just want to extend an invitation to you and everyone else to come to Austin, Texas sometime, hopefully before our scorching summer hits! Heh, heh. Lots of things to do and see and hey, some very HOT men on the Univ. of Texas campus!
