dear sweet habster,

i have been (in between other things) writing a reply to you for more than a day now (?) .... (!)

but i needed to let you know that
1) you are in my thoughts
2) your contributions here, to this thread, are extremely positive, mutually beneficial (well, i hope they are at least partly as beneficial to you are they are to me), and thought-provokingly inspirational ...
... please, please, please, do not feel unwanted ...
3) thank you for adoring me ... i adore you too ... and i hope that you are adoring you at least as much as i adore you ... ... (i already adore me too much ... ... ask sylvia ... HA!)
4) to warn you that i value this conversation so much i may try to keep it going longer than you can stand ... so you may end up having to tell me when to quit ... but please don't ... ... HA!
5) and to let me give you these things so they can stop buzzing around in my head and let me try to concentrate on my reply i'm writing you ... ... now, i hope ... ... !

i feel like as we delve into your perspective on these faith issues, we are discover / uncovering important and valuable features to our individual belief systems and epistemologies.

i am finding this process ... moving ... and significant ....
... ... i also find it very supportive and encouraging ... the more impressively so in that it would seem to me to be supportive and encouraging of differing spiritual values simultaneously ... no mean feat ...

it is not possible for me to express how very much i appreciate you putting up with me and letting me play like this ... ... though i hurt for your suffering, you are giving me great joy ... ... so it helps that you adore me anyway, thanks!

you are teaching me things ... ... things i just Think i know

... ... hang in there ...
... ... i'll try to get that post out to you soon ...

take care,
~ jim

p.s.
on a personal note
(When Are WE Ever not On A Personal Note, Jim? ... ... HA!),
folks here are having our department-retirement "party", for me and three of my colleagues today
... i have worked for the state of texas for 32 years ... dorathea, 35 ... gene, 25 ... ... and miss liz has worked for our general libraries for 50 years ... i am so proud of liz!
.. . .. . .. next friday will be my last day working here ...

.. ... .. anyway, i am confident that you will understand that i have been preoccupied by things ...
. ... ... but soon i'll be right back at you ...

( . ... ... they call it a "party" .. ... ... from 11 to 3 ... (!) ... more like public torture ... just as soon they took me out and shot me ... .. ... rather be put to hard labor cracking rocks from 11 to 3, for gripes' sakes! ... ... i'm exhausted thinking about it and i'm not even among the army of co-workers and companions who are now slaving away to get everything just right ... ... pressures that i do not need, please ... ... ... they all mean well .... very well ... especially my boss .... .... so one must perform for the masses ... .... after all this isn't for us .. ... ... it is for them ... ... ... and it will be really nice .. ... .. once it starts ... and is over with! .... .... just right now it is nerve wracking ... ... and trying (say 'trying' in a falsely lilting tone) to wear out my buddhism .. ... .. if you knon what i mean! HA! )

... ... then i need to post back to Dinah too ... and then .. .. ...
..

~ j
